Chronicles 17-year-old Clara's struggle to live up to her musical potential yet avoid the pressure of the cutthroat world of young musicians. Seveven teen-year-old Clara Lorenzo has it all: a great family, friends, Marshall-her love interest waiting in the wings. And to top it all off, she is a brilliant pianist, on her way to a career doing what she loves best. But does she? Sometimes Clara gets tired of constantly performing. She knows that her ability is more skill than passion. But if she stopped playing, her family would be heartbroken. Marshall would never understand. Clara must decide whether she can risk giving up a world where her forte is revered for one unfamiliar and uncertain.Gilbert, Barbara Snow is the author of 'Broken Chords', published 2001 under ISBN 9780440228875 and ISBN 0440228875.
