FIVE STAR FRIDAY: A Wish for Us by Tillie Cole

It has been a minute since I have done one of these, but with starting student teaching in a kindergarten classroom and so many family events in September, my life has been hectic. However, I am here now with my Five Star Friday post where I talk about a book that got an automatic five stars from me! I usually try and feature books that I have not featured on the blog yet, but I just HAD to feature this one again!


39093527From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.

Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.

Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.

When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.

Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.

Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.

But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.

A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.


Why is this a five star read? This is a five star read for me because it is one of my favorite reads of 2018. I read this book almost four months ago and I still remember every single detail. That is saying a lot since I have probably read at least 50 books since then! My heart still aches and I just can’t believe just how beautiful this book really is. Tillie did a phenomenal job writing this masterpiece.
