The Only Pirate at the Party

by Brooke S. Passey, Lindsey Stirling


Dancing electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling shares her unconventional journey in an inspiring New York Times bestselling memoir filled with the energy, persistence, and humor that have helped her successfully pursue a passion outside the box.

A classically trained musician gone rogue, Lindsey Stirling is the epitome of independent, millennial-defined success: after being voted off the set of America’s Got Talent, she went on to amass more than ten million social media fans, record two full-length albums, release multiple hits with billions of YouTube views, and to tour sold-out venues across the world.

Lindsey is not afraid to be herself. In fact, it’s her confidence and individuality that have propelled her into the spotlight. But the road hasn’t been easy. After being rejected by talent scouts, music reps, and eventually on national television, Lindsey forged her own path, step by step. Detailing every trial and triumph she has experienced until now, Lindsey shares stories of her humble yet charmed childhood, humorous adolescence, life as a struggling musician, personal struggles with anorexia, and finally, success as a world-class entertainer. Lindsey’s magnetizing story—at once remarkable and universal—is a testimony that there is no singular recipe for success, and despite what people may say, sometimes it’s okay to be The Only Pirate at the Party.

This Book is AMAZING. I love lindsey and seeing her life story was a whole new perspective on what she had to go through. The book is highly emotional and talks about depression and anorexia, so if your sensitive to those things this may not be for you. Hearing her story was just amazing. I have to say Phelba's chapter was my favorite. *cough* if the #2 fan spot is still open i'm waiting *cough* i'm a huge fan of lindsey so this book was a great read. highly recomend!
