When I began Street Song I honestly rolled my eyes at Ryan’s character. Former star who lost it all, too many parties and too many drugs. A wash out. An addict. I personally prefer “stars” who don’t get addicted to everything, but it helped get the story going.
When Ryan met Toni, I rolled my eyes as well. Oh yay, a love story! That being said, I love that Toni was a no nonsense kind of girl. She had the self confidence that most girls her age lack. It made her a really enjoyable character.
As Ryan begins his journey in Belfast, I was quickly pulled into the story and kept telling myself “One more chapter and I’ll go to bed.” I finished the book instead.
While parts of the story are a bit slow, wanting to know what Ryan’s next step would be kept me turning pages. It’s a great story about hitting rock bottom to find your true self, and then working to keep that person. I do recommend the book if you want a quick, but interesting read with a little love story and a lot of talk about music.
