I love this series! While book one is the POV of Alice and her mother, and book two is the POV of Ivy and her grandmother.
I love watching Ivy grow into her own person as she learns to express herself through music and learns to trust people.
The subject and stigma of mental health are such tough topics. Yet author Kellyn Roth does a graceful job at penning Ivy’s thoughts emotions as she helps Violet, another girl at the house for kids who is more troubled than Ivy.
Although it’s part of a series, this book can be read as a standalone.
The narrator was brilliant! I loved how she navigated both the British and Scottish accents bringing the colorful characters to life. It was hard to stop listening! I rate this gem 5 stars!
Ivy Knight lives her life in a blur of confusion as the world passes her by in a tumultuous melody. She isn’t the perfect daughter or student, but as long as she can be with her family, she doesn’t mind watching rather than living.
Mrs. Chattoway treasures both of her granddaughters now that they’re reunited. When Ivy’s parents enroll her in a Scottish school for unique children, she’s happy to chaperone.
In a new place with a new guardian, Ivy discovers a special talent that helps her see the blurred world in a new way. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel, and Ivy becomes determined to find it—and help others do the same.
