It is amazing!! I love this book!! Heart wrenching. At all. I was depressed for DAYS. Thanks for the heart break, Maude! Oh, my poor heart. They belong together. But I am somewhat recovering. Sniff sniff. Love the research! You had so much info to give us about so many of the instruments.
The grammar. The Characters are really deep. The emotions are clearly understandable. Heck, it even taught me how to sing better! Meaning with emotion. I never would have guessed. I love this book! Ignore what I said at the beginning. May 13, Susan rated it really liked it. Maude is discovering the fun and agony of being a pop star, complete with paparazzi, obnoxious managers, and boy problems. But she refuses to leave her love of opera behind, still longing to combine pop and classical in her music.
After a wonderful performance in Aida, she receives offers from two music schools, and has to decide whether to leave New York for Paris. As more information about her parents and family comes to light, she has to deal with that as well. Sep 22, Tazz rated it it was amazing. Totally an awesome read.. Loved how she has grown from where she was to where is going and the life changes she went through, from pianist to an amazing singer, to become a leader actor, her life has progressed and its such an encouragement to never give up on what you want as long as your are prepared to work for what you want!!!
Dec 12, Leah rated it liked it. This was an okay story. It wasn't as entertaining as the first book. I think it was all of the drama. I thought most of it was unneeded. I still like Matt, but he wasn't involved in much of the story.
Maude was likeable most of the time. The opera scenes were the most pleasing to read. It's too bad that wasn't the whole book. I love the unexpected drama that keeps erupting from page to page making each page a climax. Anyone in love with music , romance and drraammaaa is perfect for this amazing book. Mar 31, Aditi rated it really liked it. I loved this book too. It was amazing. I could relate to Maude easily. The author wrote amazingly. It was an easy read and I loved the style of writing.
If you want to read it, you shouldn't wait. Apr 22, Shayna Dobbins rated it it was amazing. Loved Book 2 I really enjoy these stories. Seeing people from a different world experiencing the same things that every teenager experiences: disappointments, heartache, and trouble.
Dec 08, Kim Feuchter rated it liked it. By Anna Adams. Maude thinks her life can't get any better: her first music album is a hit, she's about to meet her extended family, and she's looking forward to her first date with teen pop star, Matt. But when scandal strikes, Maude must part ways with Matt and watch Soulville Records fall into the hands of an ambitious Alan Lewis, who will stop at nothing to turn Maude into an unparalleled star.
Between glamorous parties, an unauthorized tell-all book, a web of lies, new revelations about her French past, and her rivalry with Lindsey Linton attaining a whole new level, Maude must fight for her voice to be heard and decide if being a star is more important than her love for music.

She pondered for some time on whether being locked up was all she was good for. On the fifteenth hour, she rested. And on the sixteenth hour she awoke, famished for edible forms of French sanity. French rolls, French somethings, French anythings. She threw an irate humpf at the celestial blue bar and at the crowd of paparazzi scrambling underneath.
After having brushed her rebellious curls into a bun, the young girl let her reflection peer back at her through the oval mirror. Her chocolate brown skin glowed under the flirtatious ray of light dancing around the room, and her almond-shaped eyes glowered with defiance at her reflection. Easier said than done. But when she stared into the face of the gathered crowd, Maude had to drag her courage, tangled in seaweeds of cowardice, before she surfaced into light.
Cameras shoved in her face with unhinged eagerness. Teenage celebrities like Maude were supposed to revel in limelight anyway, even when that light glared down on splattered, juicy scandals. Lips licking with anticipation. Fingers snapping. Cameras zooming. Beads of sweat falling off like shards of glass. A rivalry between two top female singers over the same guy? Such a contention would get ugly soon, and they would be there to film it.
Maude Laurent pushed through the paparazzi as futilely as a flower trying to escape a swarm of bees and elbowed her way to the dark sedan waiting for her in front of her house.
She pushed back the sunglasses. They made her face small and vulnerable, and she wished they held an unknown propriety, a secret ability rendering her invisible from prying, journalistic eyes. She shut the door firmly, leaned her head against the window, and rubbed her temples, wanting to ease her weariness with the simple gesture. Two days ago, her life had been perfect. Two days ago, Matt and her were planning their first official date.
Two days ago, New York had been her home, her haven, her heaven. Could she, Maude Laurent, be accused of cowardice? She often boasted she never ran away from a challenge. I didn't feel it. The chemistry isn't really there and Matt just magically starts to fall in love with Maude.
Little explanation is given and the progression doesn't feel na 2. Little explanation is given and the progression doesn't feel natural. Also despite being a virtuoso, I find it extremely unbelievable that Maude was able to progress so far on her own in only five years to the point where she is this unique talent in the world.
One could argue that she is like Mozart, but Mozart had instructors, one of whom was his father. Anyways, I don't not-recommend this, but you probably have better things to read; let's put it that way.

While I will be the first to admit that it's not heavy reading, there is something about it that takes it out of the fluff category. The author's knowledge and research about the different instruments in the book really impressed me.
I also enjoyed the fact that Maude was Black. I'm sorry, but reading about a young girl with brown skin who was intelligent, classically trained, hard working, and witty is a refreshing thing. I ad This book is so freaking cute! I adored Maude, and she is the kind of character that will have young girls wanting to be like her.
She's sweet but strong, and I can't wait to follow her journey. I do think the plot was a little predictable at times, but it tends to go with the genre. One complaint that I have is that I wish someone had really taken the time to edit this book. It's my understanding that is a published book, so I am surprised by the amount of mistakes that I found. I forgave them because the story is so darn cute, but I expect better from the next one.

I was rather bored yesterday and could not find any good new books, so I decided to reread this one. I think I liked it even better this time. Bonnin's gossiping. I loved the french influences and how the Baldwins I remember reading this book on Wattpad about a year ago.
I loved the french influences and how the Baldwins breath music. Above all, I love how Maude grows in the story. She meets so many obstacles, and still manages to conquer them with her head held high. Anna's writing style is not easy, but still, it is not very hard to read. She manages to let you feel, smell and hear New York. I gave this story four stars because, even though I find it amazing, I never had the desire to scream and jump up and down because of the tension. View all 4 comments.
Why the two stars? Because, literary fluff or not, I still think that this a book that could have benefited from a few more drafts and a beta pool. Nobody in this book talks like real people, real teenagers would talk.
Especially when the dialogue was between characters like the Baldwins, people who should be more comfortable speaking with one another, and it just felt so forced to me. Like Maude, for example. Sorry, I was expecting for Thomas to be the more desirable of the two. And then you have characters like Lindsey and the Rucherts. Lindsey…look, I just have learned to accept the bitchy blonde girl archetype. I hate it, but I bite my lip and move on. The Rucherts I have a much bigger issue with.
And the same goes for the New York scenes as well. The music aspect. When the only realistic thing that I can see with this is Maude writing her own lyrics, and that they read like something a sixteen year old girl would write.
Also coming from someone who has a lot of bad pop music. My aforementioned friend, who while not professional, did sing opera for a number of years, and I asked her about this, and she may have ranted at me. I also have to mention this, because this is what really had me headwalling: the record company Maude signs with, Soulville, does not have lawyers because the head, James Baldwin no, really does not like lawyers at all, and in fact, gets upset that one of his daughters wants to study law.
Not by his full name, not by a stage name, just MATT. Very enjoyable story. This is a great YA modern day Cinderella story. Maude is living with her foster family where she was raised since she was a baby. She goes to Paris for a day with school and a music producer from New York hears her sing. She is soon signed on a record label and heads to New York for six months. She immediately fits in with the producer's family and immediately makes friends.
I really enjoyed the characters, and how they interacted. I recommend this series and I can't wait t Very enjoyable story. I recommend this series and I can't wait to see what happens next with Maude and her new found family.
