WOW. This book is excellence. I read it in one sitting because I just could not put it down. I felt every emotion that Mia felt as she went through her journey to her decision. Seriously, it felt as if the author reached her hand through the pages and pulled my heart out of my chest...and it was amazing! I am not a big fan of early punk, emo, or classical music and yet I could still feel all of it described in the book as if I was at the Yo Yo Ma concert or in the mosh pit listening to Adam's band play. There are not enough good things to be said about this book, just go out and get it and read it...NOW. Seriously, why are you still reading this, get the book already!!
