Book Review

This book has a powerful plot, that keeps the reader at the edge of their seat

Daisy and Noah are musicians who have the same plan to study at the prestigious school, Juilliard. Both are chosen to perform a duet that surprisingly comes out so perfect that they both are amazed. As people notices their duets, it turns out that they are rather more interested in their love story than their musical abilities.

Daisy is a disabled violinist, who does not like to be defined by her disability. Noah, on the other hand is a 17- year old, who is diagnosed with a severe anxiety. As these two falls in love the world watches them, but it seems that the only reason why people are so interested in their love story is their fascination that Daisy is disabled, yet loved.

Will she disprove preconceptions about her situation? Well, if she does or not, this has got a high prize to pay.
“ The world Is watching you fall in love but……… has a cost instantaneously so High” .
