When Ivy Emerson’s family loses their house—complete with her beloved piano—the fear of what’s to come seizes her like a bad case of stage fright. Only this isn’t one of her single, terrifying performances. It’s her life.And it isn’t pretty.Ivy is forced to move with her family out of their affluent neighborhood to Lakeside, also known as “the wrong side of the tracks.” Hiding the truth from her friends—and the cute new guy in school, who may have secrets of his own—seems like a good idea at first. But when a bad boy next door threatens to ruin everything, Ivy’s carefully crafted lies begin to unravel . . . and there is no way to stop them.As things get to the breaking point, Ivy turns to her music, some unlikely new friends, and the trusting heart of her disabled little brother. She may be surprised that not everyone is who she thought they were . . . including herself.
Okay, so this is a new meme on Brewing up Books…I will be posting every Monday about upcoming novels that wI’ll be published in the upcoming week. The first book that I am going to feature is Between the Notes by Sharon Huss Roat. Huss Roat is a local (to me anyways) author that is just starting to make a career in writing. Her debut work is about Ivy, an average girl whose family has run into very, very hard times. According to reviews posted on Hiss Roat’s website, Between the Notes is very similar to Sarah Dessen’s books and contains a similar style of writing.
This book will be available to buy on Amazon and Barnes and Noble on June 16th.
Since this is new weekly post, please let me know is there is anything I missed so I can improve future posts. I also would love to hear your thoughts about this book…
