Welcome to the tour stop for the Harp’s Song Blog Tour for Cassie Shine’s debut novel, HARP’S SONG (Harp’s Song #1)

Harps_Song_Tour_Banner       HarpsSong_FINAL_EbookIn just a few months Harp Evans will be officially coming of age and graduating from high school. She will be free from the mother that never wanted her, the house that never felt like home, and the disappointment of the last seventeen years. What she doesn’t know is that her mother has been holding onto a secret that has the potential to derail her dreams and destroy her already faulty sense of self. A self-proclaimed recluse, Harp spends most of her time practicing the cello, in the hopes of earning a full scholarship that will grant her freedom, but will also send her away from her best friend Connor Williams, who is becoming more than just a friend. As revelations are made, will Harp still feel the same way about leaving everyone that cares about her behind? Or will she continue to pursue the life she’s been dreaming of for as long as she can remember?  GOODREADS    AMAZON    BARNES & NOBLE      SMASHWORDS

Review

Harps’ Song is a beautifully written novel that deals with a very upsetting subject matter. Since April is National Sexual Assault Awareness Month as well as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, everyone should read this book. Once I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down. I immediately fell in love with Connor and his mother for being such amazing people to Harp. I loved that Connor and Harp’s relationship grows more strongly with each page. Connor is one of the best characters I have read in while. He’s devotion to Harp is breathtaking. While this is a quick read, the development of the story and relationships is slow and deliberate. It’s emotionally taxing (so keep those tissues handy) but so incredibly worth it. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

Cassie Shine released her debut young adult novel, Harp’s Song in November 2013, finally finishing the short story she started in her college creative writing class … many, many moons ago. She has always been an avid reader and lover of music (yes, she was in the high school marching band). While she has a weak spot for all things teeny bopper, especially boy bands, she also loves classical, country, rock and well, pretty much everything. After living in St. Louis for more than ten years, she and her husband packed up a U-Haul and headed west. They currently live in Orange County, CA with their furry kids Finnegan and Molly.  WEBSITE       FACEBOOK         TWITTER       GOODREADS
