A Good Read

I received a new book for Christmas from my Son and his wife Amy. It's called Virtuosity...as you can see from the photo. It's by a new, young author, Jessica Martinez. It's a young adult fiction and I knew it was coming out and was very excited to get it. Why? Well, I would love to say it's because I know Jessica, but I really know her husband Mark. He and my Son Craig were roommates in college and best friends. He's a great guy and Jessica is a very talented lady, not just with writing but in many aspects of her life. The book is about a 17yr. old violinist...the best in the world...or she's is trying to be. It's about the relationship between her and her Mother and the other "best in the world" violinist, a 17yr. old boy from England. It's a bit of a mystery, romance and a good read. There are no vampires or werewolves in any part of it. If you get a chance to read it, I hope you enjoy it!

I will have to see that our local librarian knows about it. I will see if I can get one and read and then donate it to the library if I have to. It does not seem like a large volume book, so it should not be hard for me to finish it. Thanks for sharing.
Isn't it nice to see young people accomplish things. My son's kindergarten friend became my coordinator in my last job. I was so happy for him and his parents.
