I’ve read hundreds of books in my life, many were wonderful, some okay, but my favorite type of books are the ones that blow me away. This book was one of my favorite books of all time because I can say I’ve never truly read a book like it before. Reading about Sage, the main character, trying to survive in the streets, alone and struggling to survive really opened my eyes. I love reading about tough subjects that touch the heart, and this book is a beautiful example of that!
Sage is living life on the streets in San Francisco day to day. Some days are better than other, but some days are too much for a seventeen-year-old to handle. There are simple rules to follow to survive her new world: work hard during the day to make money, dodge the police and predators, and don’t trust anyone. She seems to be following all the rules, until she meets Derek—the handsome street performer that makes her want to take a leap of fate and dream of a better future.
So the adventure begins to reach their dreams. Sage will travel from coast to coast with her new friend Derek to chase their dreams. But sometimes, you can’t run away from your demons. No matter how far or fast you run.
Will they reach their dreams of stardom and safety? Or will their demons catch up with them and ruin everything?
Besides the storyline, I also loved Sage. Sage was such a strong character and she brought tears to my eyes with her bravery. It’s odd that I couldn’t hear her voice, but every time I read about her singing, I felt as if I could hear the emotion coming from her. I can’t describe it. The book is simply amazing and the characters really touched my heart.
I highly, highly recommend this book!
My favorite quotes:
“It’s like, bad days are the universe reminding us how good most days really are.”
“New, improved idiots. Now with twenty percent more idiot.”
“And maybe two broken people can somehow fix themselves together.”
“Sage, there are a few moments in life you’ll always remember. Most fade, but those are the standouts, the ones that stay with you.”
