My Review & Rating
4.5 "Eye Opening" Stars
Melodies hooked me in from the start and was an amazing debut for author Pamela Srey. I was left with lingering emotions and my feels were all over the place, equal parts heartbroken and awed. I must have picked this book at the right time because it was everything I enjoy in a YA novel. The story of a lost girl meeting her match.
Melodies was truly a beautiful story of learning to love not only someone else but yourself. Bianca is such a tortured young girl. Not only does she feel undeserving and unloved she also feels unworthy. The bright spot in her life comes in the form of a young popular schoolmate named Pete. Pete is beyond anything Bianca knows in her sheltered world. Where Bianca uses art to escape the harsh realities of her world, Pete doesn’t need the escape but still excels at everything, particularly of the musical variety.
Together they open eachother’s eyes. Bianca is not only uncomfortable but unbelieving in goodness in people. Pete’s family is not normal, more like a TV sitcom and it’s hard for Bianca to reconcile his perfect life to her undeserving under-appreciated one.
Overall this was a fantastic YA novel with occasional mature content. I truly love a tortured girl and Bianca is surely that. Throughout the story Bianca goes through many life events and has to make hard adult decisions. She is a determined girl and even when the pain gets too much she doesn’t give up. Though I wanted to throttle her in the end I am literally dying for more and hope a HEA is in the works for Pete and Bianca.
