Margie Cortina Top Reviewer View all my reviews I loved everything about it, but I can’t help but think that if it was longer, the book would be more completed and perhaps, we’d get more development for Emme’s feelings for Ethan: Who would believe that in pages divided by four since there are four different POV characters could be so well developed?

I found that she is not a push over as I had thought, but is actually very strong and can stand up for herself when the need arises. Berbeda dengan Sophie, Carter sang bintang yang sudah terkenal semenjak masa kanaknya menginginkan hal wajar dikehidupannya.

Nothing against Juilliard, it’s one of my dream schools and has a fantastic flute faculty, but it’s so overused in media. Emme was probably the best, because I loved to follow her as she found herself at Ethan’s urging. Sekolah adalah salah satunya. What I liked is that Ms Eulberg didn’t backtrack at the end, redeeming her character. Emme has long lived in her best friend Sophie’s shadow.
