The author and Goddess Fish Blog allowed me to read an ebook of this story for review and the blog tour (thank you). The book is available here.
Being a young teen was hard for me. I was very emotional during puberty, changing from a parochial grade school to a public high school was tough, and I had no friends. So it was very easy for me to relate to Lucy in this story. She's a sophomore, just lost her sister, feels her parents don't love her or value her, and now they are transporting her to a drama school where she will live on campus. She feels like she's been shut out.
She has a bully at the new school (anyone who can outact her is her enemy and Lucy can act), hears music no one else does, and is trying to find a reason to live.
The author shows insight in her descriptions of Lucy's emotional trauma. She surrounds her with some girlfriends and introduces a love interest. The story is about how Lucy recovers from her depression and find her life again. Some of the other characters don't do as well, but the focus here is on Lucy.
Follow along on the tale of an anguished young woman who is finally finding her own path in life. You won't be disappointed.
