Claire and Ella and their friends are bound by ties so strong they seem unbreakable.

Ella is caught the hardest, fastest, deepest – and Claire feels the pain of looking on.

Raw, emotional, lyrical, funny, and true, A Song for Ella Grey is a tale of modern teenagers and their joys, troubles, and desires. It’s a story of first love, a love that draws on ancient mythic forces. A love that leads Ella, Orpheus, and Claire to the pits of Hell and back.
