***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
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?
Aurora “Rora” Lawrence’s parents have died in a car accident so Rora stays with her aunt Leah. She is as normal as she can be for going through a mourning process in high school, she and her friends Drew, Chris, and Alex are in a band called Days End which she is the guitarist and song writer, and her best friend Emma is always there for support, or to give her a shove in the right direction when Rora isn’t sure what she wants to be doing with her life after high school. She used to be best friends many years ago with a boy named Milo, who over the years has stopped talking to her. That doesn’t mean that she’s over him truly however and hopes that before they graduate and go off to different colleges (if she even goes to college at all), that she will get a chance to finally go out with him like she always wanted. They get to talking again and do start to hang out and get to know each other more and Aurora is so excited about it. She starts to notice at school that a boy she’s never really been friends with, or truly noticed before is staring at her sometimes named Daegan Stone. He’s also going through a mourning also because his mother committed suicide. He’s also artistic and creative like Aurora and they start talking and getting to know each other and become very good friends. Aurora can sing very well too but doesn’t sing for other people because she’s way too nervous to get up on stage in front of everybody. One day Daegan hears her and convinces her to actually go up on stage and sing at a karaoke bar and blows everyone away. After a few more performances she is a Facebook and YouTube star and music people are finally taking notice which everyone is excited for. All seems well until Rora has two very big and shocking confessions brought to her attention one by Alex and one by Daegon. She’s unsure of how to feel about both. If she isn’t careful she could lose two very special friends.
The story was very good. The characters are all going through what most high school kids go through like dating, break ups, friendships, loss of friendships, and just growing up and being unsure of what you want to do. I did have a hard time putting this down and I highly recommend it.
