While spacing out in chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favorite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk and added a message to her. Intrigue!
Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters—sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she’s kind of falling for this letter writer. Only, who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can’t always be spelled out…
Lily loves music, she plays guitar and hates chemistry, she takes her notebook everywhere with her and scribbles lyrics on songs. When her chemistry teacher threatens to confiscate her notebook, Lily starts writing on the table. When she returns in chemistry the next day, she finds the continuation of the words of the song that she wrote on the desk. So begins a long correspondence between two people who are in the same high school but who don’t know who they are.
I loved Lily, her artistic side is quite developed and I like the idea that she’s lonely, her best friend is there to support her but like any friendship in high school there can be ups and downs. Her family is a little weird and I like that a lot. One particular moment was heartbreaking and I don’t know how I would have react if it been me.
I would not tell you about the male character, nor would I tell you whether I had found it or not, because that would simplify the task for you. Just know that I love the principle of this novel, it’s a bit like the blind auditions of The Voice, we learn to know people without prejudices and it’s something that we don’t do enough Nowadays.
They could have communicated by phone at a time, you say, yes you are right but it’s better on papers where there is the risk of getting caught, it spices up the story.
This book reads in one go, it is impossible to let go, it is a cute story that deserves to be read.
Quick word: This novel will make you spend a moment of pure pleasure.
