Fame.

Money.

Glory.

These were all the things that you would expect from being famous. The bait that the producers of the industry would tempt you with to get you on their side.

What they don't tell you though are all the inner tragedies that come along just as quickly. They don't tell you about the heartache that occurs when you realize that this wasn't what you wanted at all

''A really captivating read. Couldn't put the book away! A must read for young Adult readers!''

Well hello there,
good thing you're here searching for reviews! I've got one for you down below! Be sure to get yourself some tea and cookies, because I've got a lot to say ;)

Before you start reading: I got to read this book as an ARC in return of an honest review, so: That's what I'm going to give you. - Excuse me for my terrible English and grammar, you have been warned.


First impression:
I must say I

Okay, I promised a review. I am a bit biased I guess, since I helped edit this amazing book, but first and foremost I am a reader. I want to be drawn in and this book did exactly that. Here's why:

1. Lilith. Her character is flawed. She is real. She is going through a hard time and we feel that. Her emotions are spot on. I believed her. I rooted for her. I wanted her to get through the pain being thrust at her around every turn. I wanted to hit the people who were causing it for her. At the same

This book is a diverse read, but it's also more than that. It's raw and emotional, and real. It will break your heart, and in the next sentence have you laughing. It is a book about cyber bullying, suicide, and suicide prevention. While the characters are fictional, their story is true for many. I found it easy to connect with the characters. Anyone who has suffered from depression can connect with Lilith, and anyone who has loved someone with depression can connect to Alec. Or maybe you can ide ...more

Where to begin about 23:27? It's phenomenal, it's wonderful, and it's nothing like books currently on the market. In talking with Heather since before the cover reveal, I had no clue what the book would be about other than what she told me. So I kept trying to figure out what books it was like, and at first I threw out some titles... and she agreed yeah I can see that, but after reading it it's incomparable. Heather writes the main characters to be so relatable, Lilith isn't overly fake or drama ...more

I received in ARC in exchange for an honest review.

First, the cover is perfect.

I went in to this book semi-blind. After saying that, I didn't know what to expect. What I know now, is I really liked this book! My heart felt for Lilith Rose. I loved her character.

The writing style is superb. The author took two of my favorite things, reading and music and put it into one beautiful story. If you guys are thinking of reading this book, take a chance on it, and let yourself be surprised.

I know H.L. Roberts through Wattpad.

I fell in love with the book and her writing style. The pace is amazing and the book is incredibly detailed. It is written so well that you will find yourself being drawn into the story. As if you are in the story.

The story is told through Lilith and Alec's perspective which is something that I barely see today in YA books. I quite enjoyed having access to both of their perspective in their relationship.

You will fall in love with the main character Lilith. Y
