Where the Rhythm Takes You by Sarah Dass
Where the Rhythm Takes You, written by Sarah Dass, is a captivating story about two estranged childhood best friends. The story starts off with context about the main character, Reyna, her best friend, Aiden, and their relationship. Throughout the story, you see the events that transpired in the past between these two characters and how it changed them in the future. One thing I really liked about this book is that the main character, Reyna, was really relatable. She was focused on making her parents happy andshe prioritized their happiness over her own, which I think is something most people can relate to. I also liked how the author incorporated snippets from the past because it evoked a lot of emotion and also strengthened the plot of the overall story.
