She was in every part of me that was whole and good, and what was broken in me, she had dedicated her life to healing.
Miller Stratton has not led an easy life, abandonment, poverty, illness – he’s had to deal with much more than any thirteen-year-old ever should. As a result, he’s hardened his heart and does not let people in easily. Until the fateful day he meets Violet McNamara. She may have a very different life than him but she’s not without her own struggles and from the very first time they met something within him called out to her. The two formed a fast friendship but never crossed the line into more. Violet may not have wanted to risk their friendship by getting romantically involved but that didn’t stop Miller from pouring his heart out in the form of the music he creates. As his dreams of stardom start to come through, will he get Violet to realize that every song he sings is about her?
This was such a wonderful story! As the blurb suggests, this definitely is a coming of age story for both Violet and Miller. We got to witness them grow up, make mistakes, fall in love, and pursue their dreams – individually and together. There’s no shortage of angst in this story, as you might expect for a book largely set during high school. But none of it felt contrived, it’ll probably bring back long-forgotten feelings from your own high school days! From the first time Violet and Miller met, you could tell that their relationship was going to be special. And regardless of the many detours that they encountered along the way, I was able to take comfort in their connection and kept the faith that they had what it took to make it through any obstacle. Miller was one of the most genuine heroes I’ve had the pleasure of reading lately. Life dealt him a pretty crappy hand but he was such a good guy and his dedication and loyalty to Violet were truly beautiful. Violet was also a pretty great heroine, she was smart, driven, and such a great complement to Miller. They were the perfect pair and I enjoyed every second of their story! I also loved all the secondary characters and I’m very excited about the next two books about the other Lost Boys! If you are looking for a heart wrenching, angsty, but beautifully written epic love story, you’ve got to check this out!!
About The Girl in the Love Song
At Santa Cruz Central High School, they called them the misfits, the outcasts, the weirdos. But most of us knew them as the Lost Boys…
The Girl in the Love Song, book one in the Lost Boys, an interconnected coming-of-age series of standalones, from USA Today bestselling author Emma Scott, is live!
Miller Stratton is a survivor. After a harrowing childhood of poverty, he will do anything it takes to find security for himself and his mom. He’s putting all his hopes and dreams in the fragile frame of his guitar and the beauty he creates with its strings and his soulful voice.
No one expects to meet the love of their life at age thirteen. But the spunky rich girl steals Miller’s heart and refuses to give it back.
Violet McNamara’s life hasn’t been as simple as it looks. Her picture-perfect family is not so perfect after all. Her best friend Miller is her one constant and she is determined not to ruin their friendship with romantic complications.
But the heart wants what it wants. As Miller’s star begins to rise to stratospheric heights, what will it take for Violet to realize that she’s the girl in all of his love songs?
