Muse by K. French is a real page turner. I feared for the safety and sanity of Ava as she navigated the world of being 17 without her mother after a tragic accident. Since her father was estranged, she had never actually met him until a social worker got in touch with him and he attended the funeral. This turned out to be a rewarding relationship in time. Her story is further rounded out by a new friend in the foster home, a new school and home near her father, more new friends there, and finally a chance at love.
I sense there may be a sequel to continue the story sometime soon. I hope so!
