Pain never truly goes away, until you find something deeper and meaningful that cures the heart and fills it with love.

That is what Aurora desperately wants to believe. That somehow her music can save her, or even touch the unreachable heart of the guy she has liked for years.

Rora yearns for his attention and wants to experience this so-called love that could possibly end her long suffering and inspire her to chase after her dreams.

In deeply understanding the feelings of others and herself, will Aurora give up on ever finding true happiness, or will an intriguing soul teach her about the greatest song ever written?

My Review:
I have followed Shane's blog for a while, but I will honestly say I never knew that she was an author. That makes me feel horrible. I came across this book on a Waiting on Wednesday post and still didn't put the two together. When I added it to my TBR list, I had Shane contact me to see if I was interested in reading the book. Since I followed her blog I felt I should help support a fellow blogger. It wasn't until then that I even knew she wrote a book, I also thought it was her first book. I was wrong there too, she has several out.

With that said, I will read anything this girl writes. If it is anything like this book, I know there is no way that I cannot read it. I am glad I bought the book to read on my kindle. I was trying to read it on my ipad, but it was just too difficult, I had to keep reading though, so I was off to buy a copy for myself.

I was going to push this book off until October hoping she would understand, but I figured I would throw it in my TBR pile for the end of the month, and I am very glad I did. This book was refreshing and sucked me in from the prologue.

There are 3 different guy that are showing Aurora attention in this book, and the bad thing is, I liked all of them. They were all sweet and a guy I could see Aurora with, but Daegan did win my heart over in the end. Milo seems like that sweet boy next door that you are too afraid to talk to. Alex is literally the boy next door, but is one of her best friends and fellow band member who is very sweet and protective of Aurura. Then there is Daegan who is dark and mysterious but has this wonderful soft side to him that he doesn't let anyone see.

I really wish that I could have heard Aurora sing. I tried to think of someone with a naturally powerful voice, but no one really came to mind when it came to females I could compare her to. I didn't mind this, I felt like it was what made her her own special character. I really like Aurora, my only complaint with her is how she would ignore things that were causing her problems instead of trying to fix it. I wish she would have been tougher when it came to people making her make difficult decisions. I have lost my father, so I know full well how hard it can be to not have them around. Even years and years later, I still feel like a part of me is missing. I felt like I was able to relate to her quite well because of it.

This is a contemporary book but it has deep meaning within the pages. It deals with suicide, death of parents, and the fear of chasing your dreams. Now chasing your dreams shouldn't be that hard to do when you are about to graduate high school, but when you have some telling you that you are choosing wrong and should go to college and you have this fear of leaving the home of where you remember your parents at, it is definitely hard to leave.

I love how Shane makes the pages flow so well and sucks you in. Even with the darker things within the story, she takes something that is hard to talk about and makes it become understandable. I am not saying she says suicide is a good thing by any means, but she gives a story that tells how suicide can affect others and how the actions of those around that person can make things even worse. It isn't easy to lose a parent to suicide, but to have everyone shun you for it isn't right. It shows just how rude and hateful people can be, even in their teen years. I loved how I felt like I need to run and protect anyone that is getting that treatment.

I loved following Aurora. I also loved following the lives of her best friends. It was a book that I was able to flow through and not feel like hours were flying by. I felt sucked in and it made me read faster than I thought I could. I love when you finally find a good book that makes you not be able to stop reading. It was nice to watch the character progress and over come all the fears that she has in her life.

This is a book that I think pretty much anyone can enjoy, no matter what you usually read. It is different from the usual contemporary and easy to follow. I also think it is good for teens out there to read and understand what other teens could be going through or if they are the ones going through it, it can help them gain strength to keep going.
