    2. This is one of my favorite YA s of 2014 I had the pleasure to read this story in the early stages, right when the brilliance was starting, and also in the later stages when The Writers Coffee Shop picked it up for publication.The main character, Lily, is strong willed, caring, and very close to her family She is a talented singer, and when the vocal program at her school has been cut, she starts to look at other options As a singer in high school, I was immediately drawn to her Choir was my favo [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this book As a singer myself, I wish there was a little singing throughout, rather than right at the end I also had issue with the fact she couldn t really read music, especially since she got into a private school where reading comprehension would be part of the application process.But Lily was a great character With a crazy, messed up family, she struggles to carry the whole burden of keeping things together all on her own I really felt for her, and really wanted to smack bot [...]

    5. Nice YA teen drama where the girls are mean and the boys are cute but ultimately let you down I enjoyed it a lot, and am pleased to see it s the start of a series Great debut from Ms Gilley.

    6. What sounded like a promising synopsis just didn t quite match my expectations when I began reading I couldn t feel any kind of connection with the characters and the plot itself did nothing for me,

    8. My Rating 4.5 StarsReview What to say As you may have figured out I love love love contemporaries where one of the main themes is music, it s my two favorite things and this book does a really good and original job with it The characters are great and I love the setting of Seven Oaks and I just thoroughly enjoyed this book.Dislikes How it ended with Aiden It s just, first of all I loved Aiden at first even with all of his flaws but how things ended with him just ruined him all together for me, n [...]

    10. Lily O Brien says that her life is like a soap opera and she s absolutely correct Her mother abandoned Lily and her brother because Dad is a practicing alcoholic Lily s grandmother stepped up and took in the family, but then had to sell off most of the family ranch to pay back taxes Lily s aunt can t be called supportive either so it is little wonder that music provides the only solace for this sixteen year old girl Then, her school cuts the music program and fires the teacher who has trained he [...]

    14. Initially, I gave this book 3.5 stars, but the I thought about it, I didn t think I was fair I think I was mad because maybe I didn t find out all i wanted to in book 1, or mad because it ended the way it did BUT then I reminded myself it is BOOK 1 of a series AND I KNEW THAT prior to reading it So I changed my rating to 4 stars.There were a lot of things I liked about this book There were a few things I didn t The main thing I didn t like was the book is called Just Sing and it is about Lily, [...]

    18. This is a lovely little read I read it in one sitting and found myself being dragged through a quirky story that had me smiling throughout My heart totally went out to Lily, she really does have it rough She s so family oriented which surprised me a lot, but it gave her character a strength that made her strong, reliable and totally respectable In the end I did feel extremely protective of her like she was my own child It s a fast paced, book of worry that will have you locked in until as they s [...]
