“…They would get their own full color page in the yearbook for sure. Christine with her full, glamour girl smile and Sandy with his friendly, crooked grin… Lynn sighed. That was the perfect scene. It couldn’t be any other way and be right…”
Combination locks, confusing class schedules, first love, Algebra, peanut butter crackers and a handsome senior with gray- green eyes.–And that’s just the first week of high school! Freshman Lynn James is trying her best to navigate her way through the confusing hallways of Trelawney High School. For years, her life has been all about playing violin, hanging out with her best friend Patty and spending time with her mom and dad. And, sometimes even her little sister Tabitha. But now that she’s finally in high school, Lynn senses new, unfamiliar doors opening all around her. Will Lynn be able to find her own song? Or, will she get lost in the sea of sour notes at Trelawney High?
An engaging novella about a high school girl trying to find her own path.
Elizabeth Huss’ novella “Carolyn’s Song” was a truly touching, lifelike, believable, real, and entertaining romp. It was very typical of what most teenagers have gone through during school years so it was relatable.
The characters were like-able, and so comfortable, as if I was right there with them in the “Senior Hallway”.
The ending was quite surprising!
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for fair and honest review.
