Though this is a story about the life of a pop star, we were given some insight into the life that isn’t glamourous. Lily was faced all types of emotions ranging from frustration to anger to confusion because of how her fame effected her as well as her loved ones.
Sing tells the story of a pop star who is facing the harsher side of fame. With horrible stories coming out surrounding her latest breakup, Lily feels lonely, lost, and disappointed with herself. She is facing a million emotions at a time, all while feeling like she isn’t in control of her life anymore. So, she decides to take time off from everything and head to the most secluded place she can find.
In Maine she is able to find out the type of person she is when she isn’t in a relationship. It seems realistic to me that someone who is feeling so upset would need to take time off from it all. Along with her friends and time to think, she was able to truly make sense of everything in her life. I found Lily to be extremely relatable and likable because of her actions. Lily was flawed and maybe didn’t always make the best decisions, but it simply made her more realistic.
The secondary characters also helped to make this story more enjoyable. Tess and Maya were her ultimate support system who also brought humor to the story. Positive and strong friendships can sometimes be missing in books like these and I absolutely loved Lily’s friends! And of course, Noah.
Noah blushed excessively, was completely lovable, and was a perfect love interest for Lily. He was kind, real, and never held back from Lily. Lily was going through so much, but Noah was the most honest person in her life. I definitely enjoyed their sweet moments together and even though the romance started quicker than I usually like, I found myself rooting for them.
I found that there was very little to critique about this book, although I felt that if it had been longer than maybe certain things would’ve played out differently- a slower-burning romance, more in depth descriptions about certain events, and a longer conclusion. So overall, I felt that this would a read I could easily recommend to anyone because of how light, short, and sweet it was. It is the perfect summer / beach / poolside read!
