Book Description

13 Jun 2012
Music comforts us when we’re sad, and makes us shout when we’re happy. Music knows what we want to say, especially when words fail us. For Heather music is everything. Following in her mother's footsteps, Heather has always dreamed about getting into Juilliard and becoming a classical pianist. But all her dreams get shattered the day her mum dies, and her life suddenly falls into silence. Until the day she meets Toby, a hip and handsome music store owner who opens up a whole new world to her - the world of DJ-ing and dance music. Heather is carried away by this enticing underground world, and her heart starts to beat again to the rhythm of a new life - and a new love. But as her Juilliard audition approaches, time comes for Heather to choose and for the first time in her life she starts questioning what it is that she really desires. But as her Julliard audition approaches, the time comes for Heather to choose and for the first time in her life she starts questioning what it is that she really desires.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clever & enjoyable 13 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a beautifully written story. I enjoyed being taken on Heathers journey. I could relate to some of it personally and as Heather is a well written believable character I easily got swept along with this story and enjoyed it thoroughly through to the end. I liked the clever music suggestions throughout the book although it would still be enjoyable to read if you are not such a music enthusiast as me! I will be looking out for more from this author.

Heather is grieving after the death of her mother. We first meet the 21 year old musician at the funeral. Her mother's death leaves her feeling alone and also penniless in London, with only her estranged father to turn too.

A promising pianist Heathers ambition is to study at the Juilliard School in New York. In the meantime she has to temporarily move in with her Dad, Tom, and step brother, Mike.

Heather seems quite immature for a 21 year old and doesn't seem very streetwise for her age.

The book is a love story both about music and people. It's an easy read and is most likely to appeal to a female YA readership.

There is a feature film of the book in the works and it will be interesting to see how the book translates to the big screen.
