Sometimes, you don’t get to choose who you fall for…
Lennon spends most of his time raising his little
sister Currie while trying to skate through his senior year of high school. He
prefers groupies with no-strings attached but finds himself strangely attracted
to Jinx, the straight-A student in his choir.
Jinx conceals the black truth about herself from her
friends. She won’t admit to them that she screwed up big time, losing her first
love and what she once held most precious. When Jinx joins Lennon’s band to
nurture her love of music and ease the guilt gnawing away at her, she witnesses
Lennon battling his infamous father. While confronting his pent-up anger at his
dad, Lennon exposes vulnerabilities he had no intention of letting Jinx ever
see. Their reckless pasts may bring them together or further complicate their
I truly loved this book it is so much more than a love story, it a gripping heart wrenching story of life, of how two people form a friendship and find a strength in each other.
I thought from the blurb that this book was just a story about a bad boy musician with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure, but this book is just so much more, the connection that Lennon has with Currie and Zoe is so beautiful.
To read about how he has taken care of his sister from being the age of eight is very emotional to read the things that have happened to Lennon and Currie in there family life is tragic, but Lennon does his up most to shield Currie and make her life so much better than he had.
Lennon is such a remarkable character he is like a onion he has so many different layers, hes known at school a the big man whore but then he takes Zoe and Currie to the American girl to have lunch, hes slept with models and actresses but he goes home every night to his little sister so she is not alone with there mother.
Lennon could have been a total douche with the parents he has, he could have been into drugs and alsorts but with the help of Zoe’s mom he has grown up before his time learned to be a parent to his sister Currie.
Jinx is a great character also i loved how she and Lennon slowly built there friendship. Jinx is such a normal girl who likes to have a good time, shes had a bad event in her past that makes her wary of guys, but the way Lennon approches her and shields her from situations really builds the trust needed for them to move onto the next stage of there friendship.
Currie is a hoot she is such a bossy grown up in a child’s body i loved her so much, and her views on diet had me laughing out loud.
The rest of the guys in the band are wonderful they also have such a great relationship with Zoe and Currie and treat them like little sisters.
All the guys in this book treat the women characters with great respect which is so refreshing to read about in a book.
This story has a wonderful depth and had me in tears more than once.
Can you tell that i loved, loved, loved this book! I cannot wait to read more from these characters, i just hope Lennon and Jinx get some sort of happy out of life in the next book. I could not put this book down and i am a big fan of Chris Myers and will be looking for more writings from her.
