On her journey to becoming the next singing sensation, Lylah is completely stopped in her tracks when she meets William, a singer with the voice of an angel. Instantly Lylah and William are drawn to each other like magnets. Lylah and William are both puzzled by the unbreakable bond they feel. However, days after meeting, Lylah starts to decipher exactly why they feel such a connection. She starts to see visions of the past lives they’ve lived together and what she sees in each vision breaks her heart. After months of internal turmoil, Lylah now has a heart breaking decision to make. Does she abandon the love she can’t live without? Or, does she dismiss what she has seen, and risk everything…

This was a sweet young adult novel with an ending that I DID NOT see coming. At first I was not sure what to expect with the book. It took me about 10% into the read to get a grasp of Lylah. She’s a young woman on her way to graduating high school when she suddenly meets William. Her life immediately changes. They are drawn to each other with a  familiarity that overcame them from the first moment they meet. Lylah starts having dreadful visions or “day dreams”, “pictures” she calls it of the two of them. She is at war with herself on whether to continue falling in Love with this man she is so unmistakeningly smitten with, or to let him go.

I enjoyed Lylah’s character. I really felt like I was in the mind of a seventeen year old. She was immature in a way that was endearing, and I could relate to her emotions from times in my own adolescence. Her character was never forced to be more grown up than she was.

The whirlwind relationship with William also made me swoon a bit.

“I may not see you again after tonight for admitting this to you, but tonight when you were getting ready to leave, I feared if I let you walk out of that door that I would never see you again.”

William

 

Without giving away the ending, I was completely unprepared. I was so sad at times, and to know that all things end on note full of potential I was satisfied. If you enjoy a sweet young adult read, then dont hesitate in picking this up.
