Jaelyn Rose dreams of music, of songs. When she's awake and alone, she can't help singing these songs, softly to herself; the music lifts her spirits from the reality of her world. A world of hard work, hunger and barely enough water. It rarely rains. Music is forbidden. It's against the law. Be careful what you say or do; the Ministry (government), has eyes and ears everywhere. Jaelyn's parents, Marcus and Sierra, serve as security oofficers for the Ministry. Her mom tells her to be careful and sing softly, only when all doors and windows are closed. One day Jaelyn sees a drifer outside her family's gate. He has a strange, something! Jaelyn goes out to speak to him. His name is Noah and he did odd jobs. He was friendly so she iniinvited him to spend the night in the shed out back. He relayed that he too dreams of music; he said those who dreamed of music were the Chosen. Chosen? Chosen for what and by whom? Ms. Stone puts such heart into her characters and storylines!! This is the first of a three part series. I can't wait to find out what happened as she and... Uh oh, almost gave it away!! Read and find out why you'll keep returning for more!! I received this book free for an honest review.
