*REVIEW* "Life's A Cappella" by Yessi Smith

Reviewer: Liz
Rating: 4 Stars
*Copy received in exchange for an honest review*
This is a fantastic story about taking the crap life you have been dealt and turning it into something so much better. Erin left her home town 4 years ago, started fresh, built herself a new name and a new life. Her past is something she wants to forget. She feels angry at her mother for the kind of person she was and what she put her through. Erin meets Trent a sexy cop their relationship takes off, then a curve ball is thrown and Erin has to make some hard decisions. Her best friend Camilla is always there to give great support even though she thought she would leave her once she discovered Erin’s past, but she didn’t.
 This was a fantastic story poor Erin gets bad things thrown her way continually, but she has the support of her friends around her and they help her through. I did find this a little hard to get into at the start but once the story got going I found it hard to put down, I was constantly guessing what might happen next. I loved getting to know all the characters and getting to know what their lives were like. I enjoyed watching the change Erin goes through by becoming the person she never wants to be like, her mother. Yessi Smith has done a wonderful job! I enjoyed it all. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book. I look forward to reading more from Yessi.

I want to tell you how great my life was. How I lived without regrets. With constant laughter. Without any tears. I want to tell you how I lived each moment to the fullest. How each breath I took was fresh and full of life. With eagerness. Without any fear.
I want to tell you all of that, but then my story would be masked with lies and not worth telling.
My life didn’t start until I left my past. And I left everything. My mother, my friends, my name.
My new name, the name everyone knows me by is Erin Lewis.
Four years after finding the courage to leave her hometown in Alabama, Erin is finally happy with where her life has led her. Not only is she secure in her environment, but the relationships she has formed center her, making her forget how damaged she once was. Before she can fully settle into her new life, her past crashes into her present, unraveling a set of events that destroy the very foundation she has built her new life on
