I enjoyed this quite a bit! The main reason I read this was because with the Student/Teacher relationship, it kept reminding me of Pretty Little Liars with Aria and Ezra and I love them together. So, I was really intrigued with reading this one. And to be honest, it surprised me and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would have!

I really loved all of the musical references within this novel. It really made me appreciate music on a more literary level, which is awesome. I already appreciate music but when it is tapped into a book, it’s awesome. I haven’t read many books with music being a forefront and I think I may have to change that soon!

I loved Bea as a character. I loved the diversity with her and some of the other characters in this book. But what I was most disappointed in this book was how Bea and Plum’s friendship really irritated me. If they were best friends, why is Bea keeping secrets from Plum? I get keeping secrets from everyone else, but best friends tell each other everything and they are not afraid to hurt your feelings.

All-in-all, I thought this was a great book and I am very intrigued to read Nancy Ohlin’s other books!

Let’s talk about it!

    Great review! I’m actually really turned off by the teacher/student bond I just can’t ship a relationship like that so I don’t know if I’ll enjoy this or not. It’s a shame the friendhip was a let down as well that’s something I always look for ina book is a strong friendship.
