Hi everyone; which include readers, bookworms, book-addicted and bookaholic people. I know they basically mean the same thing but … whatever.
Anyway, so I’ve read this book a few days ago and I didn’t stop talking and recommending it ever since. My sister will probably have a serious sight problem; every time she hears me talking about it, she would roll her eyes ….so you know what I meant there. Right?!
C.G. Drews lives in Australia with her piano and the goal of reading every book in existence. Consequently, her brain has overflowed with words and she spends her days writing novels to make you laugh or cry (or both). She never sleeps and believes in cake for breakfast.
She blogs at paperfury.com.
Beck lives for one thing: music. But it’s not his choice. His mother, a once famous pianist, is determined to live out her shattered dreams through her son. The tyranny of her passion rains down on Beck in a torrent of violent words and blows. Isolated from the world, he is the ghost of a boy – until August comes along.
August, with her bare feet and her blue-doodled hands, her eyes as complicated as the ocean. August, fiercely protective of those in need.
As Beck’s own music swells inside him, can August help him unlock it and say all the things he’s never said?
From the very start of the book, I knew I was in for an amazing read, and I’m proudly pleased that I’ve got way more than what I’ve anticipated. The novel starts with stating how much Beck wishes to cut off his own hands, pretty weird right!??
Then, as the story developed and we were introduced to August, things started to be more and more interesting. August
was is actually one of my favorite characters!! To be completely honest,she’s someone I would like to meet in real life, with her bare feet, her nine dogs (I just hope they won’t bite me!)…
I quite like Joey (Beck’s sister) too, she reminds me of my youngest sister who acts surprisingly a lot like her. Such a bundle of joy, energy, happiness, evil cuteness she is?!
To sum it all up, I’ll probably reread this book more than twice and I think every single soul on this planet (and other planets) should read this masterpiece (or at least try). By the end of the book, I didn’t know if I wanted to cry or laugh, I was just sitting there with my mouth open trying to control the overwhelming emotions swirling inside my tiny nutshell.
