Sunny Shelly’s Review: The Girl In The Love Song, by Emma Scott

At Santa Cruz Central High School, they called them the misfits, the outcasts, the weirdos. But most of us knew them as the Lost Boys…

The Girl in the Love Song, book one in the Lost Boys, an interconnected coming-of-age series of standalones, from USA Today bestselling author Emma Scott, is live!

Miller Stratton is a survivor. After a harrowing childhood of poverty, he will do anything it takes to find security for himself and his mom. He’s putting all his hopes and dreams in the fragile frame of his guitar and the beauty he creates with its strings and his soulful voice. 

Until Violet. 

No one expects to meet the love of their life at age thirteen. But the spunky rich girl steals Miller’s heart and refuses to give it back. 

Violet McNamara’s life hasn’t been as simple as it looks. Her picture-perfect family is not so perfect after all. Her best friend Miller is her one constant and she is determined not to ruin their friendship with romantic complications. 

But the heart wants what it wants. As Miller’s star begins to rise to stratospheric heights, what will it take for Violet to realize that she’s the girl in all of his love songs?

The Girl in the Love Song features two original songs written by Emma herself.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

The Girl In The Love Song is a fantastic start to a new series by Emma Scott! Set at a high school in Santa Cruz, this story is a emotional first-love story between Have Violet and Have-Not Miller.

I was expecting a majority of this story to be one of unrequited love, but it’s not. Miller and Violet pretty much fall in love with one another at 13, but since they are both so young, they don’t know what to do with that. There is a lot of miscommunication on both parts as they begin high school as neither one of them wants to ruin the friendship by admitting that they’ve caught feelings — and firmly believe that the other has placed them in the friend-zone. Once Miller and Violet get on the same page, they are committed for life. And I LOVED that. But their road to HEA was not without bumps.

Miller and Vi were the sweetest couple. They just had such a pure love, and their relationship was magical. I really liked each of them as individuals, and I loved them as a couple. I loved that they kept true to each other even when they were separated by distance and their financial roles were reversed. They had such great love for one another, and that leapt off the page.

Emma Scott expertly weaves in a very real medical issue for Miller amongst the trials and tribulations of teenage heartbreak, following your dreams, parental issues, domestic abuse, neglect and a host of other topics. She writes it all so beautifully, and I could not wait to see what each chapter brought not only for Vi and Miller, but their ragtag crew.

I am so intrigued by Hunter and Ronan, and can’t wait to see what their books bring! I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
