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)

Love when you can sneak in the age. None of that "My name is Mya. I'm eighteen. I'm moving out today."

I'm very interested in how Aunt Gwen is going to influence our little Mya. Loving this character intro by the way!

So Gwen's brother? Or husband? If it's her brother, then Mya technically has 2 surviving relatives left. I think you said "one" earlier.

I wish my apartment was 75 degrees. I believe it's in its 50s right now.

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.
