Welcome to the New York City High School of Creative and Performing Arts, a place where talents thrive and dreams come true. That is, of course, if you work really hard, all the while managing not to crack under the insane pressure. Having a genuine talent for music (or any other form of art) also helps a lot, although it's not the only quality you'll need to possess in order to make a name for yourself. You'll also need persistence, confidence, and diligence. Most importantly, though, you need to believe in your dreams, keep your eyes on the goal and push through! Oh, and beware, some people will stop at nothing to become famous, even if it means hurting others in the process...
Extremely well written, clever, and delightful, Take a Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg is an outstanding book. A book with a beating heart and exhilarating spirit, and one so ridiculously enjoyable it will have you totally immersed in its plot within minutes (bah! SECONDS!) from the moment you start reading. Elizabeth Eulberg deserves a standing ovation for the way she managed to write a novel from four (yup, got that right, 4!) different points of view, without ever making it confusing or awkward. In fact, she really did an excellent job on that front! All four voices are original, authentic, vibrant and compelling. Each of the characters has a story to tell (and not only Emme, Sophie, Ethan and Carter, but also the absolutely hilarious supporting characters, Ben and Jack), they're all friends (at one point or another in the story), they all have distinctive voices and unique personalities.Read more ›
You can really learn something from these four characters:
Carter: a guy who's been acting since he was a baby but is confused as to who the real Carter is.
Sophie: a girl who wants to become a mega super star no matter what it takes, even using and abusing her best friend, Emme.
Ethan: a guy who really likes music but messes up a lot in his relationships with his girlfriend and friends. And who has feelings for Emme but doesn't know what to do about it.
Emme: a girl who writes amazing songs but doesn't have the courage to sing them herself so she lets her best friend Sophie sing them.
So like I said, Take a Bow was a fun and fast read. I did enjoy it but I found myself annoyed more than a few times.
What I found annoying was Emme. She's the sweet and shy girl who everyone likes but I found her kinda annoying. Not only is her personality sweet and shy it's also quite dense. She doesn't really see how her "best friend" Sophie really uses and abuses her. Although she claims to Carter she is not unaware that Sophie only comes to her when she needs/wants something. Then when she finds out who the real Sophie is she claims to herself she knew that Sophie changed but made excuses for her. I didn't really believe that. It took almost until the end of the book for Emme to finally realize Sophie isn't her best friend anymore just a jealous girl.
Not only is Emme dense in one relationship but in two.Read more ›
