Melody Burning by Whitley Strieber

Beresford doesn’t remember much about his past or how he came to live in the chutes and crawl spaces of the posh high-rise that shares his name. But when rock star and teen sensation Melody McGrath moves to an apartment on the fiftieth floor, he knows he has to be near her. Although she doesn’t realize it, Melody is threatened by more dangerous forces than her manipulative stage mom and the pressures of life in the spotlight. The owner of the glamorous building has been hiding a fatal secret within its walls, and Beresford puts all his plans at risk. Will Beresford and Melody be able to escape with their lives (and love) intact?

My Thoughts/Review:

I love it. I have never read anything like this. The cover is perfect for this book. Melody's character is stunning. Her and Beresford were amazing. Their character development gave you a lot to think about, and kept you wanting to know more and more about Beresford and Melody's story. It was insane the kind of stuff that you would never think about that Mr. Strieber brings up in his writing. You would never think about the pressures of being a Rockstar. We think it's all fun and games. He brings an approach that I have never really thought about. And all the people saying "There's no way she could love him. She's know him for *insert time* minutes/hours." But as a teenager, I can say, We have a ton of hormones. We jump to conclusions. And we are more willing to jump headfirst into love than the average adult is. That being said, you also never really think about a boy living in the walls of a major apartment building, do you? But he made it work. This book was reality, mixed with a dash of fantasy, and it came out with it's own genre of books. In short, I loved it.
