About The Book:
Here are five reasons why we at Hepedee House think you will want to review Lolo Harrison’s trilogy,
“Exploso, the Music of the Universe”
1. Drew, the main character and driving force, is fun, energetic, entertaining, innovative. But when crossed? Scarily daring, goes where no girl has gone before.
2. There is suspense, action, twists and turns of the plot, and as Drew keeps learning, so do we, about the theater biz, music biz, fashion biz, movie biz, even the Nobel biz!
3. Young Adult books have become yesterday, and YA + sex = New Adult books (being bought by girls ages 15-30) are now today. And Exploso is among them.
4. “Your parents won’t love it, but your girlfriends will!” wrote one reviewer.
5. Because of Lolo Harrison’s literary gifts. Her descriptions of Drew’s inner thoughts add a few gems to the treasure of human stories. For girls of our western world in this early 21st century, so obsessed with the roles of our genders, Exploso is also a thought-provoker, maybe even a game-changer. (Simone de Beauvoir, whose book The Second Sex started “women’s lib” all over our world , would have loved it!)

Not your average fifteen-year-old, Drew is an inventive, energetic, strong-willed only child, a key member of The Toves, her gang of friends at Punahou School in Honolulu. She’s “involved in so many activities it makes your head spin”, as her Mom put it. Trouble is, her mom, who runs the swankiest 5-star hotel on Waikiki Beach like a 4-star general, and her lovable Daddums, who rules its rooftop restaurant, Le Point de Vue, with ingenuity and aloha, work too hard. And never have time for much “family stuff”. Drew is lonely.
So one morning when she hears the host of MTV inviting “her” (and the rest of America’s youth) to come party with them in Florida at Thanksgiving, she vows that she and her best friend, Paulette, are going to accept the invitation!
Trying to stop her is like trying to stop a tidal wave.
Once in Fort Lauderdale, though, she and Paulette seem out of their depth — until suddenly Bobby Cool, editor of the magazine Out Rage Us, with orange cartwheel hair, turns up, and offers them a ride to Miami.
On the way, they hear for the first time the new Miami sound: Exploso music! They beg him to take them to a night club tonight where they can dance to it.
“You’re too young,” he says, but now takes them to a daytime party at South Beach, where they join the fun and, for the first time, do the kind of dancing they had only done in Paulette’s basement rec room: putting hula moves to house beats: where their hips “sway from side to side like a slow-breaking wave or smash and crash like a shore-break.”
The South Beach sophisticates are stunned! When he sees their reactions, Bobby then agrees to get the girls into a night club, if they let his friend ZouZou paint their faces so they look lots older, and dress like they’re 20.
When they appear at Endorphia, they’re seated on the VIP balcony and treated to champagne. And when they do their hula-house again, this crowd is also wowed. After the fourth glass of champagne Drew loses track… Wakes up in a bed… With a man…
We hope you’ll want to meet Drew in person, and not just keep hearing about her exploits from other people.
(By the way, the first book takes place while Drew is a student at Punahou High in Honolulu. As one reader has noted, President Obama is also a Punahou alum, but he tells you nothing at all about the school in his own book, whereas Drew in Exploso tells you a lot.)
Exploso is also on sale in Australia, New Zealand, India, Japan, Brazil, the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria and Canada.
Would you like us at Hepedee House to ask amazon.com to send you an e-book for review ASAP?
Exploso will be offered for free for the following five days: June 1 to 5, (Saturday to Wednesday). Of course, we hope to have your review out before then, if possible. But it’s a long book, and we’ll appreciate your review whenever you have time to give Exploso your thoughtful consideration.
With appreciation for your work to encourage writers to keep on writing and readers to keep on reading, despite the increasing competition for our attention from other media and pastimes,
Director, Hepedee House
