Playlist for Snowed By Maria Alexander
I’m a voracious music addict and a recovering Goth. So, I listen to pretty much anything electronic, dark and powerful, as well as plenty of popular music, like Cage the Elephant and Fall Out Boy. My varied tastes also lead me to really cool, lesser-known musicians like Chase Holfelder and Rico.
Snowed is my debut YA novel. It’s about Charity Jones, a teen skeptic who learns she should not only believe in certain Christmas myths, but she should be afraid of them. As I was writing the book, I listened to all of these songs, plus a couple of movie soundtracks. Each song in the playlist represents a section of the book. Don’t worry — you won’t be able to guess the twists and turns of the plot from them. I’ve included links to the official music videos where possible.

Want to know more about Snowed? Here’s a full synopsis:
Charity Jones is a 16-year-old engineering genius who’s much-bullied for being biracial and a skeptic at her conservative school in Oak County, California. Everything changes when Charity’s social worker mother brings home a sweet teen runaway named Aidan to foster for the holidays. Matched in every way, Charity and Aidan quickly fall in love. But it seems he’s not the only new arrival: Charity soon finds the brutally slain corpse of her worst bully and she gets hard, haunting evidence that the killer is stalking Oak County. As she and her Skeptics Club investigate this death and others, they find at every turn the mystery only grows darker and more deadly. One thing’s for certain: there’s a bloody battle coming this holiday season that will change their lives — and human history — forever.
