Love, mystery, secrets and burning ambition - this book has it all...Jess's only dream is to be a violinist, but when stage fright causes her to fail an audition for a place at music school, she cannot afford to keep playing. She is devastated, until the grandmother she didn't know existed shows up at her family's doorstep and promises six months of tuition in exchange for Jess moving to live with her in London and abiding by all her rules. Jess's life there changes more than she'd ever imagined. Not only is her musical training nearly impossible to keep up with, but she also finds herself caught between the boy who is her only lifeline in London, and the boy she thought had abandoned her for ever. And at the climax of her mysterious stay in London, Jess uncovers her grandmother's devastating secret, which tore her family apart and links directly to Jess's own musical dream.
