Publisher's Write-Up

One piece of music.
One boy, one girl.
Music brings them together, or maybe not?

For years, the piano prodigy, Richard Roberton, avoided the piano. He never dared to play in front of people nor dared to join any completion. His life wasn’t perfect but he had Elizabeth – his best friend. He realized that he was in love with her. But it was too cliché and he didn’t want to sacrifice their eleven-year-long friendship for something he was unsure of.

High school was supposed to be most enjoyable times. But for Richard, it is the complete opposite. His best friend started dating another guy, which broke his heart. He envied people who could play the instrument they love.

Unfortunately, life doesn't go as planned for Elizabeth. This changed the life of both Richard and Elizabeth... Would they be together at the end?

Would Elizabeth able to get out of her life situation? This is a romantic, enthralling and very uplifting story about memory, pain, living, music, loving and dying – simultaneously tragic and promising.

Standalone Young Adult Tearjerker Romance. For ages 14 and up.

Richard Robertson is a young piano prodigy who totally avoids playing the piano; he claims that he can no longer hear the music. His parents died in an auto accident a few years previously; he still lives in the family mansion with Nana Rosy, the maid and cook, and Jackson, the chauffeur (not "chauffer").

Lizzie is the daughter of Richard's piano teacher; the two form a life-long friendship. When they reach high school, Richard's feelings toward Lizzie become more than platonic. He is afraid to tell her out of fear that it will damage or destroy their friendship. It breaks his heart to watch Lizzie become the girlfriend of someone else. He also envies those who have no problem playing the instrument they love.

Life deals Lizzie a major setback. Does Richard get up the courage to tell Lizzie how he feels about her? Does Richard ever return to the keyboard?

This is a really good teen romance. It's clean and wholesome, it's got teens and lots of emotion, and it's got classical music. This would make a really good movie.
