Leila Sales, who wrote This Song Will Save Your Life, is back with another fantastic YA novel, Tonight the Streets Are Ours. Because this novel is centered around a road trip — and because Sales really knows her stuff when it comes to music — we asked to take a peek into her mind (and her iPod) with an exclusive Road Trip Playlist, featuring everyone from Bruce Springsteen to Belle & Sebastian.

Check out Sales’ playlist below, and pick up Tonight the Streets Are Ours when it hits shelves Sept. 15.
