    I love how this book can make you feel like there is light in dark times and that things that seem bad can end good and that life always involves music. The characters are so calm and intelligent.

    I loved how Echo made think there is always light in dark times. It is true that music really can get you through dark times. It was sad but the ending made happy. I loved how the author intwined the three stories.

    This book is a good book. It is a good book for 11 to 12 years old. I am so glad COLORLESSNESS wrote this book.

    This book had me very intrigued. I was reading it whenever possible. It was really cool how the author brought Friedrich, Mike and Ivy together at the end. I personally am not a musician but i love listening to music whenever.
