  8. This short story was packed full of emotion It s about a boy, Payton, that is sent to live with his father, a father he has never known, after the death of his mother It has been his dream to attend the prestigious School of the Arts for musically gifted youth It is at this school that he meets a very talented singer, Lily, that he becomes attracted to only to find out she has some secrets of her own Overall I thought the story was great and shows the very real truth behind substance abuse.


  9. As a musician, I expected to enjoy the musical setting of this story From the blurb, I expected some references to the helplessness that comes with mental disorders, but I wasn t ready for the gripping detail and the harsh reality of the consequences that sometimes follow them This was a very dark tale, reminding me of the musical Rent I read this in two sittings, and will definitely look forward to from this author.


  10. I think this book is amazing Chynna Laird is a talented author, who really makes the book interesting, and pulls you in This book in particular is really real, and helps you understand what might ve going around you Great book I would also recommend you to get her other books too


  11. Interesting premise I can t imagine having so many family issues and baggage to deal with I liked that he was able to take something horrible and make something positive out of it.
