Book Review | No Place to Fall by Jayne Robin Brown

Amber Vaughn is a good girl. She sings solos at church, babysits her nephew after school, and spends every Friday night hanging out at her best friend Devon’s house. It’s only when Amber goes exploring in the woods near her home, singing camp songs with the hikers she meets on the Appalachian Trail, that she feels free—and when the bigger world feels just a little bit more in reach.

When Amber learns about an audition at the North Carolina School of the Arts, she decides that her dream—to sing on bigger stages—could also be her ticket to a new life. Devon’s older (and unavailable) brother, Will, helps Amber prepare for her one chance to try out for the hypercompetitive arts school. But the more time Will and Amber spend together, the more complicated their relationship becomes . . . and Amber starts to wonder if she’s such a good girl, after all.

Then, in an afternoon, the bottom drops out of her family’s world—and Amber is faced with an impossible choice between her promise as an artist and the people she loves. Amber always thought she knew what a good girl would do. But between “right” and “wrong,” there’s a whole world of possibilities.

Amber and Will. 
I've read books in the past that have fantastic characters, and fantastic relationships between those characters. This, is one of them.
I have to say, that I did really enjoy the storyline. I liked all the music emphasis', and there were some really great moments in this book between all of the characters. However. Without a doubt, I have to say that my favorite part of this of this novel was the relationship between Amber and Will.
I'm already a fan of the love stories that have complications, but when you throw in a shared interest in music, some truly sweet moments between them, and an element of unpredictability on how it's going to end. Then you're onto a winner.
This is a great book, with a really interesting storyline, and great characters. I would highly recommend it.
