Danny Goldstein has always lived in the shadow of his identical, twin brother Sam. But when a hurricane of events forces him into the spotlight, he starts to realize that the only thing he’s truly afraid of is himself.
With the help of his costume changing friend Cher, a famous gay uncle with a mysterious past of his own, two aging punk rocker parents and Rusty, the boy who will become his something to live for, Danny begins to realize that the music of the heart is truly the soundtrack for living.
This is a story about finding yourself and finding first love. The characters in this book are beautifully written, Danny always in his twin brother’s shadow, is suddenly the centre of everything, especially for his parents who are terrified of losing him as well, his friend Cher, struggling with who she is and who she wants to be until events decide things for her and Rusty, constantly moving from place to place as his mother desperately tries to find a cure for his ill sister.
Each one has their issues, but together they work it out.
The book was so well written that I could feel that excited flutter your heart goes through only with first love, and the love and issues face by Danny and Rusty actually had be in tears on more than one occasion.
All I can say is that this is one of the best books I have read this year – everything from Danny’s loneliness at losing his brother, to falling in love at first sight with Rusty is so well done and believable.
You must read this book
