All Our Pretty Songs by Sarah McCarry was a book about two girls who grow up like sisters.  They have completely different personalities but neither have a father.  Aurora is beautiful and outgoing, while the narrator keeps to herself and dresses however she wants.  The girls have been best friends forever, and then Jack comes.  Aurora has already dealt with too much loss and can't stand to lose her best friend as well.  This is a story about relationships, friendships and how to balance them all. 

Opinion: 

Overall this wasn't a bad book. I really liked how the author introduced the characters and told their back stories.  I also liked the way she portrayed the narrator's mixed emotions about letting people go and trying not to hurt others.  Throughout the middle the plot is sort of repetitive, but overall the plot is exciting and has lots of unexpected turns.
