Book Review: Stealing the Show (Such Sweet Sorrow Trilogy, Book One)

I love how the first few pages of this book instantly connected with me as I perused it. The writing flows beautifully. The author, Baker Lawley, has written it with impressive attention to details, and filled it with effective dialogues that will allow you to step into the tale and make you want to stay there until you finish it.

For the benefit of the readers and followers of this blog, here's the book description taken from Amazon:

Lewis Champion is in love--total, hopeless, unrequited love--with Jubilee Marshfield. Which is complicated, because she's his best friend. And even though his other best friend Shoe, and his awesome grandfather, Paps, are both rooting for him, Lewis can't get up the courage to tell her how he feels. He's always been a wallflower, watching people and making theories rather than acting on his feelings. In a last-ditch effort for her affection, Lewis acts in a play alongside his two friends, and he discovers a talent hidden within himself. But when Paps suddenly dies and leaves in his will a most mysterious task for Lewis, he must find a way to follow through. And along the way, he discovers the secrets of stories, the courage to say what he feels, and a whole new meaning to the word "acting." The only question is, will his best friend feel the same way, or will he lose her when he tells her?

Reading the book made me feel totally involved, totally connected with the feelings, thoughts and experiences of the lead character, Lewis Champion.

As I've mentioned earlier, this is one of those books that will make you want to read it through in one sitting.  I'm sure most YA readers would love this one. :-)

I'll see you next post.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I have received this book for free and have written my honest opinion about it.
