Hi, my name is Kim and I am addicted to books. See? I can admit it!!
To say that Jaybird was an emotional read would be an understatement! There were parts of it that just made me want to jump into my Kindle and slap the sense into some of the characters. Other parts reduced me to ugly tears. And there were some parts that had me laughing out loud and snorting coffee out of my nose. There is a line that is rather R-rated that I still find a way to use in conversation because it cracks me up every single time!
Jayla has spent most of her life out of the limelight, sheltered from the world by her protective parents. Her father is an insanely famous musician, her best friend a supermodel. Her circle of friends includes other famous musicians and professional athletes. On the surface, it seems like a world most of us just couldn't understand. But despite the trappings of celebrity and wealth, they are real people with real problems. Every one of them reminds the reader of someone they know.
While Jayla is at the center of this book, several other characters have stories of their own that weave in and out of the storyline. The author's writing made the characters and their stories thoroughly engaging. It was the kind of book that just drew me in and wouldn't let me go without a struggle. It was beautifully written and I can't wait to read more from her!
