Description

Ruby has always been Ruby Chertok: future classical pianist and daughter of renowned composer Martin Chertok. But after her horrendous audition for the prestigious music school where her father is on faculty, it's clear that music has publicly dumped her. Now Ruby is suddenly just . . . Ruby. And who is that again? All she knows is that she wants away from the world of classical music for good. Oscar is a wunderkind, a musical genius. Just ask any of the 1.8 million people who've watched him conduct on YouTube--or hey, just ask Oscar. But while he might be the type who'd name himself when asked about his favorite composer and somehow make you love him more for it, Oscar is not the type to jeopardize his chance to study under the great Martin Chertok--not for a crush. He's all too aware of how the ultra-privileged world of classical music might interpret a black guy like him falling for his benefactor's white daughter. But as the New York City summer heats up, so does the spark between Ruby and Oscar. Soon their connection crackles with the same alive, uncontainable energy as the city itself. Can two people still figuring themselves out figure out how to be together? Or will the world make the choice for them?

Professional reviews

"In a youthful tone, Sarah Beth Goer narrates a stunning coming-of-age romance that is an exquisite listen for any music lover. Defined by her family's musical genius, privileged 17-year-old Ruby Chertok tries to escape her legacy--until she comes face-to-face with her father's prodigy and new tenant, Oscar Bell. Goer's dynamic performance ranges from the soft, innocent tones of Ruby to the low, quirky voice of Oscar as she successfully captures the raw emotions of first love muddled by racism and greed. Goer's narration is music to the ears as she captures the social pressures that arise from this blooming romance. Listeners will agree this narration is noteworthy.
