When Mrs. Wheeler’s health comes to worse, Ruby and Joshua set off to an adventure to find Mrs. Wheeler’s long lost daughter. The entire adventure was really realistic, except for the phone call from Ruby’s mother. I had thought that her overprotective mom will go chasing her down and bring her home. However, it was a good thing that they were able to go off their own adventure because Ruby was able to realize a lot of things on her own.
Veen has also written Just Like a Musical beautifully well. Her ability to make readers feel the emotions of the characters is amazing. This book may just have been a short read (less than 200 pages) but it has made me realize some life lessons. I loved the way how Veen connects life with musicals and screenplays.
“We were like two debut actors on the silver screen. And life - life was just like a musical. Sad and beautiful at the same time.”
There was just one thing I didn’t like, which was the way some parts were narrated instead of being shown. It felt a little less personal to me that way. Nevertheless, Just Like a Musical is a splendid story about life, parent-child relationship, and growing up with a touch of romance.
