A Thousand Perfect Notes by C.G Drews Book Review

I’m not crying you are! What a STUNNING debut from none other than one of my book reviewing heroes! This book made me emotional, laugh, smile and cry hysterically like I just watched the titanic for the first time.

It was a poignant tale of a young boy named Beck who knows that there is nothing in his life that is more important than playing the piano. His abusive mother, “the Maestro” makes him practice his music until his fingers hurt. Beck is afraid to raise his voice and speak his mind but can a young girl named August, with doodles on her hands help him to take a stand?

Oh my lord! I LOVED THIS TOO MUCH!

This was perfectly balanced and it wasn’t scared to be brave and bold and tell the world the truth about abuse. It was dark and heavy but with a balance of light fluffiness that helped the reader to both laugh and cry. I guess to sum this all up it was the feeling of eating a smooth milk chocolate Lindt ball and letting it melt on your tongue.

YES IT WAS THAT GOOD!

I literally have no critiques you just have to read it! I don’t say that about many books especially contemporary that can be flawed in so many ways or can be perceived as too cliche but this is the book I’ll be shoving in everyone’s faces in 2018!

ACTUAL RATING: 4.1 STARS
