America’s most famous pop star flees the spotlight to recover from her latest break-up in Maine – only to fall for a local boy and be faced with an impossible choice at the end of the summer: her new guy, or her music.
Lily Ross has just been dumped by her boyfriend. This happens to most people at some point in their life so it shouldn’t be a big deal but for Lily Ross it monumental. You see, Lily Ross is a world famous singer and her every move is scrutinised by the world press. In a bid to deal with her gossip-worthy break-up, Lily and her friends retreat to a small town in Maine where Lily can heal without the media saturated society of big cities haunting her every move.
Sucker-for-love Lily heals in the best way she knows…by falling for someone else.
Sing by Vivi Greene is an enjoyable teen romance that deals with issues of love, sexuality, personal growth and, indeed, the intrusive nature of our media saturated society where ‘selfies’ and ‘status updates’ are the currency of the day.
Lily Ross is a likeable protagoinist. Vivi Greene was very smart in the creation of the character by making her as down to earth as possible whilst also owning the celebrity status. Lily comes across as a humble, girl-next-door type; she values her fans and doesn’t take her lifestyle for granted. A lesson that some of our current celebrities could learn from.
Overall, Sing was an enjoyable, easy read. It is perfect for those days at the beach over the summer with your friends.
Sing by Vivi Greene is available now.
