Private Lessons: Review

Rating: 3/5 stars
This was enjoyable and easy to read. It's about Claire who is 17 years old and wants to be a professional pianist. She lives with an overprotective mother and takes classes with an instructor named Paul who she wants to impress. Claire learns about who is she making this a coming of age novel.

The writing of this book was okay. It was good enough to keep making me read this book but I was more interested in how the story would end. Claire is the main character who is passionate about the piano. She is one of those girls who wants to be seen and have a boyfriend. She tries to impress her teacher who takes control of her feelings. The characters I did like in this book because they were all different. Each character had a certain role to play in the book like the mom is the overprotective mother hen, her friend is the one who gets her out of her shell kind of, etc.

This is one of those books where kids can learn that they don't need to impress others but themselves. It's a book that you can talk to your parents with. This book was interesting and I recommend it to those who like coming-of-age novels.
