My Thoughts:

I thoroughly enjoyed every last page of this book. Porcelain Keys is a
beautiful, heartfelt love story about two broken lives that fit together
to become whole. I loved it. The author used exquisite imagery
throughout the book, and I couldn’t help being swept away on the
strains of music that filled the pages.

The characters are flawed, which makes them relatable and lovable. They
both have to overcome so much. They learn to deal with their individual
demons and give forgiveness where it is needed. More than anything, they
learn to let go and love each other.

The book is a lot longer than most YA I’ve read, and it also spans a
couple of years. I was surprised that didn’t bother me, since I don’t
usually like books that cover long periods of time.  But I fell in love
with the characters and the way the author writes. It was one of those
books that I kept thinking about, even when I wasn’t reading it.  It is a
sweet story about love, forgiveness, and strength.

Content: Domestic violence with very few details. Clean otherwise.
