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.
✯✯5 Emotional Stars!!!✯✯
Wow! Margaret McHeyzer legit guts me with every book she writes. I end up speechless, heart pounding and crying. It's always an ugly cry. This was no different.
Alice is a ballet dancer and plans on dancing on the big stage when she's older. She dances sun up to sun down. When she's not dancing she's with her parents and Becky. Becky is her best friend since forever. Becky is also her sister and soulmate. Alice's life is perfect.
Becky has become part of Alice's life ever since her mother passed away when she was younger. She's a very talented guitarist. But, she gets nervous on stage. Becky loves Alice and looks at her like the sister and best friend that she is.
Elijah has gone to school with Alice and Becky forever. But, they weren't always friends. In fact Alice thought he didn't like her. But.... Actually, Elijah is the annoying boy you go to school with that calls her names and makes fun of her. Now Elijah has grown up and he's done calling her names and he's stepping up. Elijah lets Alice know she's his soulmate and will do everything to prove it.
These 3 quickly become best friends. Elijah and Alice fall in love. They end falling into a great friendship and a love story as well. But, when one of them gets sick and theres not much that can be done. They all get together with Alice's parents and the community get together do everything they can to make a bucket list be complete.
I'm not giving anything else away. BC, I'd be me if I read a review that ruined it for me. Just know that Alice and Becky's friendship/sisterhood was beautiful. Alice and Elijah are perfect for each other. Becky and Elijah had an awesome relationship as well. Alice's parents loved their daughter with their whole heart. They also love Becky as their daughter and Elijah as their son.
This was written beautifully. Margaret has such a beautiful gift and I'm honored to get to read her stories. They're beautiful, emotional, touching and so powerful. I'm always waiting for her next new release. I know I sound like a broken record but it's a million percent true.

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.
