The local Avery Theater was just a run-down building to Quin—until her mother told her the tragic love story of Nick and Emma that played out on the theater’s stage all those years ago. Quin is convinced it’s the perfect story to rewrite for her drama class, but when she goes searching for more information, she makes a startling discovery—the Avery is rapidly regaining its former splendor and setting the stage for her classmates Dylan and Cass to relive Nick and Emma’s romance. Quin can see the spark between them, but it’s up to her to make sure her friends—and the Avery—can both be saved this time around.

I loved this story. I know Quin, Cass, Dylan, and the rest of the drama class are probably the characters that everyone is going to look at, but The Avery itself is a character. You can tell by the way Quin talks about it living and breathing, and the magic that it emits. I loved learning about the history behind her doors, and tragedies that fell upon her. 

Anything can be beautiful and worth taking risks on if you just believe in it. Give it that little push it needs.

  1. I've not read any of Holly Schindler's books but I do have Feral on my TBR shelf. I love thrillers of any type so both are a must read for me.

    1. I have feral on my kindle and a blue so dark on my shelf I'll definitely be checking those out after reading this one. Her writing is beautiful.


I love comments! Leave me one, and I will comment back either on here or on yours! So check back!

Happy Reading and Blogging, Ashley
