There are some books that stay with you long after you have closed the book. Porcelain Keys is just such a book. I fell in love with Aria and Thomas immediately and cheered them on as I read their story. They felt so real with their hopes and dreams and struggles. My heart almost broke with the tragedies in their lives and the pain they each had to face. It was sweet to see the way their relationship developed as they found something they desperately needed in the other. I also really enjoyed the musical aspects of the story as they were beautifully detailed and vivid. Made me want to here Aria really play. ;) A clean and beautiful romance that is all a romance should be although you might want to have some tissues handy, some of the scenes in the book are truly heart-wrenching. Highly recommended.
