The Girl in the Love Song
(Lost Boys #1)
by Emma Scott

Miller Stratton is a survivor. After a harrowing childhood of poverty, he will do anything it takes to find security for himself and his mom. He’s putting all his hopes and dreams in the fragile frame of his guitar and the beauty he creates with its strings and his soulful voice.

Until Violet.

No one expects to meet the love of their life at age thirteen. But the spunky rich girl steals Miller’s heart and refuses to give it back.

Violet McNamara’s life hasn’t been as simple as it looks. Her picture-perfect family is not so perfect after all. Her best friend Miller is her one constant and she is determined not to ruin their friendship with romantic complications.

But the heart wants what it wants. As Miller’s star begins to rise to stratospheric heights, what will it take for Violet to realize that she’s the girl in all of his love songs?


This is probably the best book I’ve read this year and I’m still not over it.

Miller Stratton, his love, joy, pain, suffering and musicality spoke so much volume to me than any other rock star I’ve ever met. His story from when he was sleeping in the car to giving back to the homeless – all of it made me fall in love with him.

Violet is so lucky to have him and Miller’s so lucky to have her. They both deserve each other. Violet, strong willed and passionate despite the paternal crisis she’s been under, is one of a kind. I love her from the moment she took Miller under her wing. Even after failing to read the signs, I still loved her because she has a pure heart and soul.

I can’t stop crying. Even after I read all the chapters and pages, the acknowledgement and dedication, I am still crying. I’m a blundering ugly crier and Emma Scott is the culprit.

I don’t want to sound cliche, but this is probably the best book I’ve read this year and I’m still not over it. I wish I was that girl in the love song.
