Kensington Worth, aka Kensi is very normal at first. When things happen for her in her chosen career, the personal side of her life starts to crumble. There is a very delicate balance here that threatens her household. I totally enjoyed how the author creates a very devious sub-plot. This book was fantastic!
The way Kensi has her music passion and how her parents, mainly her Dad, try to dictate her future was killer. The two families who live next door to each other were opposites, on the surface. The Harper household brought tears to my eyes a few times. As I grew to know Kensi and her family they did the same.
So sometimes as a parent you can push and demand instead of guiding your child. The way Kensi deals with her career and what turns out to be her ultimate passion was awesome!
I was loving how the Harper family had this bond. The fact that from the outside you thought they were all trouble but, they were very multi-layered. Their heartache was so real. They have more than one relevant issues. I really loved how Mrs Harper cared for her father. Having a parent with Alzheimer’s disease is a hot topic, so it was dealt with here in a caring way. Aside from that there is James Harper. I really loved him. James has substance problems and it is the most heartbreaking part for me to read.
The family drama was the center of this book. I thought it was extremely well written. Part of being an avid reader is wanting to scream “this book is amazing”! Then having everyone read it. Now as I think back to the one plot device that was, for me, most important I am yelling! I cant tell you what it was but Oh my GOD it was shocking.
