Now she has to decide whether she should to give up her wonderful life to chase those dreams.
When her parents announce they are moving, she comes across a long-lost family treasure. She doesn’t realize that this treasure may hold the key to her future and to all her dreams coming true.
And if that wasn’t sign enough, a mysterious stranger throws another wrench in the mix at a dazzling rooftop party benefiting the Arts. These could be signs of things to come.
But will she remain content in her perfect world, or will she step into the unknown world she has always dreamed of?
I enjoyed reading See You Soon Broadway. In fact, I finished it in two days; I could hardly put it down. Maris was a very likeable character who I could relate to. Her predicament of having an amazing life, but feeling like there could be something more to it is one that many, myself included, have been in before. It was fun to follow her journey of soul-searching to find out what she really wanted out of life. The plot wasn’t too farfetched and was something that could possibly happen in real life. I really felt like I was a part of the story. At times, I even felt like I was Maris because of the first person point of view. The other characters in the book were also interesting and added to the sense of lifelikeness. See You Soon Broadway had just the right amount of romance, with a bit of mystery thrown in. Kyle and Trevor make up part of the “love triangle” and Georgie and Beatrice add comic relief. It was well written, even though there could have been a little bit more background information on the characters. The story ended happily, but with a cliffhanger. When I finished reading, I wanted to immediately start reading the second book.
I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions in this review are 100% my own.
