“A blade of grass is connected to the others all around it, multiple blades pressed close, connected at the root, touching above it. Joshua’s absence is like that. It spreads through me and touches every thought.”
We’ve probably all thought about what it would be like to be rich and famous. To wake up and know that somewhere somebody is thinking about you and the enjoyment you bring to their lives. We always assume it would make your life better but we never really look at the outcome. How it takes over your life.
Maybe life in the spotlight isn’t what it’s cracked up to be and Joshua learns this first hand. His story will emotionally drain you as you piece together his life and the pain he’s living through.
I’ve read this book in one day and I regret nothing. There was something about this book that made me keep reading and I needed to know what was going to happen next.
At first, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. The atmosphere that was being built was powerful and it felt as if you were there. The feel of your heart beating faster as the stage lights brighten, thousands of screaming fans, and the thrill of sharing your passion with the word. You were emotionally connected to this story from page one.
The story that flows through these pages is beautiful, unexpected, and fully captivating. It’s one that not only speaks to teens but adults as well. I just really hope that Roxy’s story isn’t over.
Please, judge this book by its cover because the inside is just as breathtaking as the outside!!
Thank you, Penguin Teen!!
