rachel ☾ (typedtruths) | 8564 comments Harp's Song by Cassie Shine

In just a few months Harp Evans will be officially coming of age and graduating from high school. She will be free from the mother that never wanted her, the house that never felt like home, and the disappointment of the last seventeen years. What she doesn’t know is that her mother has been holding onto a secret that has the potential to derail her dreams and destroy her already faulty sense of self.

A self-proclaimed recluse, Harp spends most of her time practicing the cello, in the hopes of earning a full scholarship that will grant her freedom, but will also send her away from her best friend Connor Williams, who is becoming more than just a friend.

As revelations are made, will Harp still feel the same way about leaving everyone that cares about her behind? Or will she continue to pursue the life she’s been dreaming of, for as long as she can remember?

Sorry about that! I really get frustrated reading books with these settings - which I am finding out is most of YA fiction, unfortunately! (view spoiler)

Rachmi  | 4945 comments Emily wrote: "how is it so far? please don't tell me its another dud?"

For me, there's something off in the writing. The flow doesn't smooth and rather jumpy as Abbie said. And I don't know but I just couldn't connect to Harp and Connor and am on 30% now


Emily Bradley-dorman | 495 comments Okay thanks guys. I can cope with alright... I think!
