I have three major loves in my life: my family, my best friend Becky, and ballet. Elijah Turner is quickly becoming the fourth.
He’s been around as long as I can remember. But now he’s much more than just the annoying guy at school.
My life was working out perfectly…until it got turned upside down.
I generously received this ARC from Give Me Books in exchange for an honest review…
I am having a difficult time reviewing this book, not because I didn’t like it but because it is ones of those books that you want to experience first hand without any spoilers. Dying Wish was such a beautifully written book that will stay with me for days (if not months) to come. I not only adored the main characters (Alice and Elijah) coming of age story, but the secondary characters (Becky and Laurie) also added immensely to the overall essence of this extraordinary original story!
My review is going to be relatively short because as I mentioned I don’t want to give too much about this book away. The author did an amazing job at developing Alice’s storyline and creating such a beautifully unique character that every girl can relate to. You can clearly see the characters intense passion surrounding her love of ballet and how hard she has worked to get where she is today. Ballet is Alice’s life and until Elijah entered the picture she never thought she had room for anything else. Their relationship is like no other, filled with such intensity that it left me craving more.
Overall, I absolutely loved this story and happily gave it 5 stars! This book was so well written and I cannot wait to read another book by this author in the near future…
About Margaret McHeyzer
There’s something about the written word that is pure magic.
Possibly it’s the fact there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering they’re capable to change our lives.
How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?
I like to think of myself as ‘unique’. My stories aren’t for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be ‘normal’.
Normal is subjective.
I prefer to be known as a person who’s never been ‘bound by custom’ but is ‘unique by choice’.
I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.
