But then she sees the boy in the front row, playing violin like his life depends on it--and she is transfixed. Posing as an NYU student, Dom sneaks back to New York City to track down Ben Tristan, a magnetic genius who whisks her out of her limited life in New Jersey and into a fantasy world of jazz clubs and opera, infatuation and possibility. As Dom's web of lies grows, though, so does Ben's manic need to conquer Beethoven's famously intense Kreutzer Sonata. But Ben's genius, which captivates Dom, conceals a much darker truth, and the facts of her own life will make it impossible for Dom to help him."-- Provided by publisher.

But then she sees the boy in the front row playing violin like his life depends on it --- and she is transfixed. <br> Posing as an NYU student, Dom sneaks back to New York City to track down Ben Tristan, a magnetic genius who whisks her into a fantasy world of jazz clubs and opera, infatuation and possibility. Each sees something in the other that promises to complete them. <br> As Dom's web of lies grows, though, so does Ben's overwhelming need to conquer Beethoven's famous Kreutzer Sonata.

Author Lindsay Champion's deep roots in theater and music are evident on every page --- structured like a sonata with hints of West Side Story, her debut novel hits all the right notes.

Horn Book Review

Dominique (Dom) has always wanted to be a modern dancer, but her mother's struggling laundry business doesn't provide a lot of options after high school. Ben studies violin at the prestigious Brighton Academy and is obsessed with perfection. Their worlds collide against the backdrop of NYC in a sweeping, classic-feeling romance that deals with privilege and the lies we instinctually tell ourselves and others. (c) Copyright 2019.
