When You Get The Chance
by Emma Lord
There’s Steph, a still-aspiring stage actress and receptionist at a talent agency. There’s Farrah, ethereal dance teacher who clearly doesn’t have the two left feet Millie has. And Beth, the chipper and sweet stage enthusiast with an equally exuberant fifteen-year-old daughter (A possible sister?! This is getting out of hand). But how can you find a new part of your life and expect it to fit into your old one, without leaving any marks? And why is it that when you go looking for the past, it somehow keeps bringing you back to what you’ve had all along?
Thank you to Netgalley and the Publisher for an advanced review copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own.
As a baby Millie was given to her father to raise by himself. She has never met her mother nor does she know who she is. After a disagreement with her dad, Millie decides to find her mom as a way to get what she wants. When things don't go exactly as planned Millie is taken on a journey to understanding herself, her parents and the parts of love that sometimes mean letting go.
What a truly wonderful story! It wasn't long before I was drawn into the dramatic life of Millie Price. She is incredibly charming with a heart full of sass. Her story is as heartwarming as it is entertaining.
