I just finished devouring Amy Spalding's debut. It is a rare thing when I wish a book would just go on and on and on and on forever. I just absolutely adored this book. The characters are fascinating and layered and are so alive from the moment they enter the story. It is sad and happy and simple and complex and just wonderful. It has been so long since I said this: What a freaking great debut!

Things I know about Reece Malcolm:

1. She graduated from New York University.
2. She lives in or near Los Angeles.
3. Since her first novel was released, she’s been on the New York Times bestseller list every week.
4. She likes strong coffee and bourbon.
5. She’s my mother.

Devan knows very little about Reece Malcolm, until the day her father dies and she’s shipped off to live with the mother she’s never met. All she has is a list of notebook entries that doesn’t add up to much.

L.A. offers a whole new world to Devan—a performing arts school allows her to pursue her passion for show choir and musicals, a new circle of friends helps to draw her out of her shell, and an intriguing boy opens up possibilities for her first love.

But then the Reece Malcolm list gets a surprising new entry. Now that Devan is so close to having it all, can she handle the possibility of losing everything?

A huge thank you from NetGalley and  Entangled Teen for this read.
