Ivy Emerson used to live in a wealthy neighborhood, but when her father’s investment went wrong, she was forced to give up everything – including her beloved piano – and move to Lakeside, the wrong side of town, with her family. She was ashamed of this and she made up lies.  However, as time goes on her lies begin to unravel. Here, Ivy learned to embrace what has happened to her family and live with it.
Between the Notes is a gripping and very relatable.  The way was written is just great!I loved how this book was not only about romance, but also about family, friendship, and learning more about oneself. At first Ivy was bitter and created lies, but she still took care of her family, especially her special-needs brother. Later on, Ivy learned to embrace her situation and had the courage to tell the truth to those who were judgemental of her. I also loved Ivy and Reesa’s friendship because it showed how in every friendship, there are fights, but if you’re really friends, it will all work out in the end.

I also loved the relationship Lennie and Ivy had. She was unsure of him because of his reputation but as the book progressed she really got to know him and realized you shouldn’t believe everything you hear.


This debut novel by Sharon Huss Roat is amazing and I’d recommend it!
