Oh mai god! Someone bring me some ammonia, because I think this girl is gonna faint!
I’m not even gonna be all dramatic, but EMMA SCOTT is here!!!! If you’ve been keeping in touch with all the releases this year, then you know that one book released was literally one of the best books ever. And by that I of course mean In Harmony. I know I’m pretty dramatic on a regular basis, but In Harmony literally tore at me. I gave it a 6 star! And the only other books I’ve given a six star to are Leylah’s books.
So yeah, I really love Emma. She was literally the third name on my list of authors when I was making one for sending out the invitations. I was praying and hoping that she would accept because she’s just too phenomenal an author and I really wanted to show everyone that she’s exceptionally good in every thing she writes. I really really hope you guys check this poem out because I fucking love it. Period.
So without more of my dramatic monologues, I present to you- Emma freaking Scott.
About this book:
The root of all madness is an unbearable truth…
At seventeen, Willow Holloway’s life was torn apart. The happy, driven girl is gone, and she is left wracked by post-traumatic stress her body remembers even if she does not. When her father suddenly uproots the family from their posh penthouse in New York City to the tiny town of Harmony, Indiana, Willow becomes more untethered and lost under the weight of her secret. On a whim, she auditions for a part in the community theater’s production of Hamlet and unexpectedly wins the role of Ophelia—the girl who is undone by madness, and her love of Hamlet…
Isaac Pearce is from the ‘wrong side of the tracks.’ The town bad boy. Girls pine for his attention and guys are in awe of him. That he’s an acting prodigy only adds to his charisma. Isaac utterly disappears into his characters; the stage is the only place he feels safe from his own traumatic home life. He wants nothing more than to escape to Broadway or Hollywood and leave Harmony behind for good.
No one can play Hamlet but Isaac, and when the director pairs him with Willow in acting class, they clash again and again—neither willing to open their hearts to anyone. But clashing leads to breaking, breaking leads to the spilling of terrible secrets, and soon Isaac and Willow find Shakespeare’s words mirroring their lives. When they are cruelly torn apart, neither know how this play will end—with madness and heartache? Or healing, love, and the discovery of who they are truly meant to be.
