Never ask a question unless you’re sure you want the truth.

I’ve been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my mp3 player. It’s just that we’ve never met face to face.

My mother would never tell me how I came to be, or why my rock star father and I have never met. I thought it was her only secret. I was wrong.

When she dies, he finally appears. Suddenly I have a first class ticket into my father’s exclusive world. A world I don’t want any part of – not at this cost.
Only three things keep me going: my a cappella singing group, a swoony blue-eyed boy named Jake, and the burning questions in my soul. There’s a secret shame that comes from being an unwanted child. It drags me down, and puts distance between me and the boy I love.

My father is the only one alive who knows my history. I need the truth, even if it scares me.

Jenny’s Review


Going into this book, I thought Sarina Bowen, hell yes, of course I am reading this even though I’ve struggled with Young Adult before, its Sarina Bowen for goodness sakes. So afterwards, I can honestly say this book is exactly what I needed, HELL YES, probably one of the most easiest books I have read this year! It’s emotional, it’s sweet, it captures you from the start and keeps you locked tight throughout. I absolutely loved this book, hands down one you need to pick up and read.

This book takes you on a journey of a girl who loses her mother, just shy of her 18th Birthday. She has never met her father, doesn’t mean she doesn’t know who he is, but he has never been a part of her life until now. So how does she start a relationship with an absentee father for the past 17 years, yet she has idolized him from the sidelines her entire life and has followed his career as a successful rock star? The connection, the unique relationship that is built is simply beautiful. The ups and downs, the lefts and rights, it’s downright genuine and real. The relationship between Rachel and her father, it’s so beautifully done.

This story also brings us Jake Willis. Another magical character that I wish we got more of, because what we got, I head over heals fell in love with. Jake & Rachel’s relationship is like breathing fresh air, it’s so easy, so natural, and it slowly, yet perfectly becomes such a stunning relationship.

Each side character is so beautifully executed, each having a role in making this book simply irresistible. This book has all the feels, just enough to break you at times, but enough to completely and utterly have you swooning for most of the characters.

Heartfelt, sweet, heartbreaking, and so downright lovable, this book is one you can’t pass by. Pick it up!!!
