Links To Buy:

Thanks to Puffin firstly for this book, and I was excited after reading the promotion material. Taking a break from the usual contemporary paranormal young adult books, this work of fiction was welcome and refreshing in more ways than one.

Jay Merchant has a chance to make his dream come true, and he grabs an internship with both hands that propels him into the world of Beats. Landing himself on his feet after an unsuccessful job at Foot Locker where his dreams were going nowhere, we see the author Dillon Khan raise Jay to accept the challenge of making something of this opportunity.

Realising his opportunity to make his dreams come true, Jay pushes himself to work as hard as he can and throughout the story, we as the readers can't help but feel proud of how his character grows, how he reaches his potential and makes sacrifices to achieve his dream.

Khan teaches us, through simplistic and easy to follow writing, that you have to do what it takes to get what you want - if it's worth it, you'll fight for it. Thanks to Jay's wit and the humour that flowed easily in the book, readers can dive straight in to the story from beginning to end in one sitting.

There's no sugar coating to Jay's experiences as you feel the full effect of everything he does through - and this boils down to Khan's realistic writing in portraying Jay's struggles and life. I approve. It sends home a message of struggle, potential, dreams, ambitions, hard work and so much more - it's real and it's happening and I'm glad I read Dillon Khan's fantastic book to put a smile on my face :)
