Ll of whom are classical celebrities I mourned belonging to this I probably always would I loved Oscar and Ruby s romance so very much Seeing them navigate the challenges n their Danger on the Mountain individual lives together was a joy to read and their relationship felt very true to life They make mistakes they apologize they communicate all very refreshingn YA romance There s no shortage of witty banter between the two MCs who by the way are both SO FUNNY on their own too Plus I mean come on can you think of a better backdrop for a teenage love story than a summer studying music amongst the of New York CityOf course I also all the music talk Every time a piece was name dropped loved all the music talk Every time a piece was name dropped Ruby and Oscar got nto a discussion about Mozart whenever there was talk of pedagogy all of the little things that only people whose lives have revolved around music would catch t made my heart soar Night Music feels like such a love letter to the classical music world but also acknowledges that the things we love are not without flaws Reading this book gave me a sense of home and comfort that I hadn t realized I d been missing since music school ended Also the last paragraph of the acknowledgements made me cryOverall I felt an ntensely personal connection to this book but t s also just a cute YA contemporary with excellent social commentary I think so many readers will fall for I highly recommend picking this one up this spring all uotations are taken from an uncorrected proof and are subject to change n the final copy 3 12 stars Ruby learned the truth at 17 In a family of musical geniuses world renowned conductors composers Triumph of the Optimists: 101 Years of Global Investment Returns instrument players she s a talentless suib whose abilities are merely passable Without the future she s spent her whole life anticipating she s at a big lost very loose end But things look up a little when she reconnects with the former best friend she dumped to get serious about her music and when Oscar a verifiable musical geniusf ever there was one moves The Silent Service: Los Angeles Class into her family s basement apartment to spend the summer studying at the prestigious musical academy Ruby thought she d be attending Oscars surprisingly handsome and sexy and funny And surprisingly nterested n Ruby boring though she may be finding herself at the moment This was a very sweet YA romancefinding yourself story Ruby grew on me as the story progressed and Flesh Blood: Compendium it became clear what a void she s facing now that she understands that shesn t going to be playing the piano for a living and worse that the nice things people said to her about her playing over the years were just kindnesses never genuine praise I actually wish this had all been revealed n ts entirety a lot earlier n the book than t was because this part of the story s metered out pretty slowly and I spent the first uarter of the book thinking Ruby was suffering from general depression rather than grieving a specific loss Once I knew what was actually going on I understood her much better and found her far relatable I nearly chucked the book aside after the first 50 pages because her scatteredness wasn t very compelling I am glad I read to the end The subplot around Oscar s presence at the music academy and the story being spun around him as a talented black teenager was really well done and made great socialmedia commentary Although I almost wish that part of the book had been written from his POV the punches would have been harder The story of Ruby reconnecting with Jules the friend she ditched because she wasn t serious about anything Jules We were ten Ten year olds aren t supposed to be serious was actually my favorite relationship n this book The combination of awkwardness and warmth as they build a new friendship felt really true to life and had some of the best lines of dialogue n the book If Jenn Marie Thorne would like to write a book about Jules I will be glad to read t There s also some family drama and recognition of healthy versus unhealthy relationships so this book had well rounded depth The musical background s really well done too It fills out the story without reuiring the reader to be too much of a music person although I did feel a little under educated as Ruby and Oscar kept name checking classical musicians and pieces I ve never heard of despite growing up next door to the director of the local college s school of music and being exposed to all his knowledge right along with his own kids Definitely an enjoyable read Shame on me for thinking this book was going to be just a cute summer romance t was. Ows s that she wants out of the orbit of her relentlessly mpressive family and away from the world of classical music for good Yes Yes Oscar Madam Speaker: Nancy Pelosi's Life, Times, and Rise to Power is a wunderkind a musical genius Just ask any of the 18 million people who've watched him conduct his own compositions on YouTube or hey just ask Oscar But while he might be the type who'd name himself when asked about his favorite composer and somehow make you love him fort Oscar s not the type to jeopardize his chance to study under the great Mar. ,
