Mya was content with the life she shared with her grandparents. Though sheltered, she was happy and safe, free of the terrifying situations with her unstable mother all those years ago. But the death of Mya's grandparents changes her life forever. She is forced to move on with only a few belongings and their ashes to remind her what she was leaving behind.

The only family she has left is an uncle she's never met and her Aunt Gwen,  who ran from the life of riches at full speed, leaving her up town upbringing for a bar and a band. Forever a wild child, Gwen must show her niece how beautiful chaos can be and teach her what being a teenager should be like. Get in trouble. Wear makeup. Stay out late. Fall in love. 

Mya has no idea how to see the beauty in any of it... until she walks into his classroom and comes face to face with his beauty. As Mya falls deeper into her forbidden desires she finds out just how chaotic life can be.

(Formally Falling For The First Time)

I actually really liked the first chapter. I can see Mya's emotions and even understand some of them. I hope I see her personality develop as the book moves on,

I can see the effort you put into this first chapter and that last line, wow, it really impacted me. I already feel emotion for the main character, and I want to see how she will grow.

Third para - 'never spoke of turn' - do you mean out of turn?  :)

I really enjoyed how you put a lot of effort to the detailing of characters so far and their emotions. My heart felt so bad for Mya during her nightmare. I tink that Ryan will show up. He needs to otherwise why would Gwen try so hard. Excellent so far!

This chapter gave some information about Myra's family and her likes and dislikes and how different she is. Someone buy her a pair of jeans. I look forward to reading more.
