"Whoever said that people don't change was full of it. That or they never had a friend who wanted to be famous."

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.

Love the book cover and the description of the book and that is why I wanted to read it. However, I was very disappointed. The book lagged and I had to force myself to finish it. There was a lot of potential but the story just couldn't hold my attention. For one, Emme is such a wishy washy girl that it got on my nerves. I wanted to grab her by the shoulders and shake her. The strongest character I felt was Sophie. Yes, I know she has no soul and will take anyone down who stands in her way but I felt her determination and need to be a famous star. Too bad there wasn't more of Sophie in the book. I did like how the story was told by each character's point of view, but to me, there just wasn't enough dialogue between the characters.

The 4 main characters of this book are extremely talented students at the New York City High School of Creative and Performing Arts. Sophie's big dream is to win a Grammy before she turns 20. Her plan for success includes singing an original song written just for her by her long time best friend, Emme Connelly. Emme is in the Music Composition Program and also plays guitar in a band with Ethan Quinn and two other guys. Carter Harrison is a former child star who is searching for a little normalcy and the true passion of his life. Sophie and Emme have been best friends since the third grade and have been working together since then. However, as they went through high school, Sophie's ambition heightened as her skills plateaued. As she felt her dreams slipping away, she becomes more and more desperate and willing to use anyone to find a place in the spotlight of celebrity. Sophie was very happy to be dating Carter Harrison and accompany him to openings and red carpet affairs even though her motivation wasn't Carter but to get her picture and name in the press. She was happy to use Carter in the same way that she used Emme. Emme was such a good friend that she was willing to drop anything to write a song for Sophie and rehearse with her, even if it meant that her own work didn't get done. Her dream was to graduate and attend the famed Juilliard School of Music. She didn't need to be in the spotlight but was perfectly happy being in the shadows, writing and playing her music. She was very clear about where she wanted to go in life and was therefore surprised that Carter Harrison, the child star and soap actor, seemed to be living a role rather than actually living his life.Read more ›

Take a Bow by Elizabeth Eulburg was a fun and fast read. I thought the plot was interesting. Four students attend a very prestigious and challenging music school to follow their dreams. I enjoyed seeing through those four pairs of eyes about how it's like to attend a school for it's music and other programs ( drama, art, etc.)

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.
