Sage’s life as a teenage runaway in San Francisco is simple: Snatch a few hours of sleep on park benches and bus stops; dodge perverts, predators, and cops; and make enough as a street musician to eat. But her world flips upside down when she meets Derek – hot, tattooed, and charming, a singer from Seattle whose looks and talent take her breath away.
What begins as a reluctant partnership quickly develops into a cross-country race against time – and awakens a hunger in Sage that’s unfamiliar and exciting.
As they travel from coast to coast, Sage and Derek pursue their dream, only to discover that they can never run far enough to escape the demons from their pasts.
At first, I thought it was cheesy and all the crappy things like ‘oh he’s so gorgeous!’ or ‘he’s so handsome I’m gonna die!’ thing. It maybe but not really.
The author’s style had me hooked and sent me butterflies everytime some big thing’s going up. Their performances sent chills to my tummy and I felt like I was there with them, or maybe make me feel what they’re feeling.
I’m also proud to say that the story made me feel like I’m watching (or reading) someone as she grows. From literally nothing to something. It’s like I was really there.
