Synopsis

Beck hates his life. He hates his violent mother. He hates his home. Most of all, he hates the piano that his mother forces him to play hour after hour, day after day. He will never play as she did before illness ended her career and left her bitter and broken. But Beck is too scared to stand up to his mother, and tell her his true passion, which is composing his own music – because the least suggestion of rebellion on his part ends in violence.

When Beck meets August, a girl full of life, energy and laughter, love begins to awaken within him and he glimpses a way to escape his painful existence. But dare he reach for it?

My Review

 

Don’t let it’s size fool you, this book pack an emotional punch. Beck is an extremely talented young man but he is abused horribly by this mother. She is driven by her own failed ambition and unfortunately Beck cops the majority of her emotional backlash. August however is full of light and hope. It was beautiful to see how the relationship between her and Beck blossomed.

Overall this is a thought-provoking quick read and a solid debut from Drews. I am sure that her writing will continue to improve as she evolves as a writer and I am looking forward to reading her next book!

Overall Rating:   4/5 teacups
