I thought the plot was interesting. Four students attend a very prestigious and challenging music school to follow their dreams.
I enjoyed seeing through those four pairs of eyes about how it’s like boww attend eulbrg school for it’s music and other programs drama, art, etc. You can really learn something from these four characters: And who has feelings for Emme but doesn’t know what to do about it.
So like I said, Take a Bow was a fun and fast read.
I did enjoy it but I found myself annoyed more than a few times. What I found annoying was Emme.
She’s the sweet and shy girl who everyone likes but I found her kinda annoying. Not only is her personality sweet and shy it’s also quite dense.
She doesn’t really see how her “best friend” Sophie really uses and abuses her. Then when she finds out tae the real Sophie is she claims to herself she knew that Sophie changed but made excuses for her. I didn’t really euoberg that. It took almost until the end of the book for Emme eoizabeth finally realize Sophie isn’t her best friend anymore just a jealous girl.
Not only is Emme dense in one relationship but in two. She doesn’t realize until later that Ethan is her real best friend and then later realizes he’s in love with her. Am I the only one who saw that Emme also kinda used and abuses Ethan?
She doesn’t want to be front stage so she and the guys in their band make Ethan front man but she’s harsh to him when he messes up in the band. Still I do admit she was right in doing the Mount Emme thing since Ethan did deserve a tongue lashing but she does insult too. She also helps Sophie cheat by playing Ethan’s song so Sophie has an edge. I was mad that Ethan didn’t yell at her for that. I do like Emme as a character but I found that she was to dense for me to really like her. I think she was also too high and mighty especially concerning Ethan.
I give this book three stars. One person found this helpful. Let me just preface this by saying that I really did enjoy the book.
The story unfolds with four perspective voices. There’s Sophie, Carter, Ethan and Emme. Each chapter is from a different perspective character which still moves the plot along in a linear fashion. I liked way the story was told. The voice was always fresh and new because it would be four chapters until we came back to that character’s chapter again.
And I liked that I could see the story through not just one pair of eyes.
It was very well crafted. I do have to say though, that starting out, the only character I really liked was Ethan. I couldn’t stand Sophie. She’s so completely absorbed in her own talent and importance. She sees the world as her stage and all the little people help her reach her goals. She has drawn out a plan to become famous, which also includes those around her.
She uses every one she knows to her own end like she has the right to because she deserves it. An example is her relationship with Emme. She is Emme’s best friend, but I can’t say the feeling is mutual. Emme is a songwriter and she needs Emme to be a part of the plan so Emme will write songs for her to sing.
No one can write songs like Emme can or make Sophie sound as dynamic as Emme does with her music. Emme doesn’t sing her own songs because Sophie has convinced her that she doesn’t sing very well. As it turns out, Emme does have a decent voice, but then she becomes competition. Even Sophie’s choice in boyfriends is calculated.
She is dating Carter who is a child star and currently starring in a soap opera. She like dating Carter because they go out often to premiers and such and there are lots of photo ops to get her face out there and her name. Carter is just one of the stepping stones that will help Sophie achieve her dream of fame and success. I found nothing at all endearing about her, but the character was very well written.
Carter is a eulbergg more z. He is going through an identity crisis realizing that he elizaeth doesn’t enjoy acting. It is unfortunate because no one will allow him the opportunity to explore any other career path other than acting.
In any of the school productions, he is always told he is going to be doing a scene from a eulbwrg. Even when he tried to suggest another talent to showcase, he was basically shut down. He feels trapped by a future he no longer wants and has no idea how to extricate himself from the situation he has found himself in. He finds that he is not just acting on the set, but he’s acting through life. Playing the perfect boyfriend, playing the perfect student, playing the perfect son.
