"A Part to Play" is a beautifully written story with characters that are masterfully brought to life. This story will warm your heart as often as it breaks it.

Fifteen-year-old actress Lucy Carter has just had her life turned upside down. Her older sister died in a car accident, and Lucy's parents have sent her off to boarding school while they fall apart from their loss. Lucy feels abandoned and alone, and even the `Edmond School for Performing Arts', a place where her dreams should come true, leaves her feeling hollow and numb.

When her life seems to be at its lowest point, Lucy hears the most beautiful music through the vent. The mystery of finding the source of the magnificent melody drives her to explore the ancient school's basement and vent system. Lucy seems to be awakened by her nearly obsessive desire to find the source of the music, and slowly she begins to feel again. The music leads her to find her muse, an amazingly talented songwriter/musician, who is just as troubled as he is talented.

Lucy's determined search through the school's heating system to find the mysterious musician was captivating, and her equally difficult struggle to overcome her grief and to find herself again kept me reading late into the night. The intense relationship between Lucy and her musician, made it difficult to put this book down for even a minute.
