Jody Pritchett had a dream…but life had other plans. Instead of singing and dancing on Broadway, Jody’s a twenty-year-old single mom, living at home with her disapproving father and overbearing sister. The choice to keep her little Angelia came with a high price and although she adores her baby girl, it doesn’t take away the sting of kissing goodbye her chance at a career on the stage.
Leo Sinclair had his own dream…but got lost along the way. After a failed marriage that left him hollow and downtrodden, the Australian songwriter wonders what joy his future could possibly hold. Encouraged by the one family member who doesn’t think he’s a failure, Leo decides to stop living the life everyone expects him to and start chasing his dreams again.
When the perfect opportunity comes knocking, Leo leaves Australia behind and hops a flight to LA. With his sights set on selling a musical to a Broadway producer, Leo is determined to finally realize his life-long dream. But life gets in the way again, when he spots a young mother outside his apartment in tears. He never realized how one person, one voice, and one Angel could have him contemplating abandoning his dreams once again.
As these two burned hearts wrestle to overcome their past struggles, Leo and Jody must decide what dreams are worth clinging to…because, sometimes, everything you want is not everything you need.
Among the Songbird novels, I’d say that Everything is my favorite one yet. I love how Jody’s character was made. Her flaws were all so realistic and I’ve seen happen in real life that I could sympathize with her character. I liked how she worked her way to building herself from the big road block that she run into. More importantly, I love the way Leo’s character fit through it all.
Everything is a story of dreams, reaching them, stumbling, picking yourself up and how love, family and friendship will see you through amidst all the troubles. Once again, Melissa have written a story that is sure to touch the heart and makes you ponder about your own life and the road you are going through. A lot of us might just learn a thing or two from Jody as we walk the journey with her and Leo.
