Description

For fans of Nicola Yoon and Nina LaCour comes a striking novel about difficult choices from acclaimed author Brandy Colbert.
Since she was seven years old, Yvonne has had her trusted violin to keep her company, especially in those lonely days after her mother walked out on their family. But with graduation just around the corner, she is forced to face the hard truth that she just might not be good enough to attend a conservatory after high school.
Full of doubt about her future, and increasingly frustrated by her strained relationship with her successful but emotionally closed-off father, Yvonne meets a street musician and fellow violinist who understands her struggle. He's mysterious, charming, and different from Warren, the familiar and reliable boy who has her heart. But when Yvonne becomes unexpectedly pregnant, she has to make the most difficult decision yet about her future.
From the author of Pointe and Little & Lion, comes another heartfelt novel about the twists and turns that can show up on a path meant only for you.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 04, 2018 – Colbert (Little & Lion) delivers another emotionally layered story, this time centered around Yvonne, a young African-American woman struggling to figure out what she wants to do with her life torn between whether to attend a music conservatory and try to become a professional violinist, or give up the violin and choose another profession. Lonely at home, where her mother left years earlier and her father is largely absent, Yvonne finds solace in baking. Her dad, a celebrated L.A. chef, and his friend see talent in Yvonne's cakes and tarts, and they encourage her to consider pastry chef training. Meanwhile, Yvonne is floating between two boys: Warren, her father's sous chef, and a street violinist. Yvonne's character is steady and compelling as she struggles to connect with her always stoned, workaholic father and decide what, if anything, she wants from her romantic partners. Colbert shows a clear knack for secondary characters, and she surrounds Yvonne with a best friend who's her equal in thoughtfulness, as well as the ever-gentle, if prone to mistakes, Warren. As Yvonne's struggles grow to include life-changing decisions, this accessible, nuanced novel will reward patient readers. Ages 14 up.
