Review: Grounded By You – Ivy Sinclair
Millie St. John has always done what her parents have told her to do. She’s lived a privileged life, and has never known what it’s like to live with the simplicities of life. Until now, that is.
Determined to make something of herself, Millie has decided that she’ll forgo working for her parent’s company. In her mind, working for herself, and achieving her dreams is the boost she needs to reassert herself. She knows that breaking the news to her parents won’t be easy. They’re sure to disown her, but that’s a chance she’s willing to take from the get-go.
When a summer acquaintance appears on her doorstep, Millie soon realizes just how much her life has changed. Not to mention that she’s discovered that she has feelings for Sam. She knows she shouldn’t dwell on what she feels. Sam is way out of her league know that he’s to become a household name. She’s determined to be there for Sam in every way possible, even as her life takes a hectic turn.
Dealing with her harried parents, the paparazzi, and Sam himself, she begins to wonder as to whether she’ll ever get her life back on track again. There’s so much pulling her in every direction, threatening to break what little is left of her sanity. Refusing to give in to the uncertainties that threaten to overcome her, Millie will do everything possible to take the bull by its horns, and have it bend to her will. She has to. It’s her only way of coping with the craziness cropping up all around her. Not to mention the fact that slowly, but surely, Sam has started to become more to her than just the friend she knows he should remain.
A bittersweet story, we’re swept along Millie St. John’s tumultuous lifestyle as she struggles to overcome the adversities headed her way. Like any young adult, life has a way of throwing curves at you that you never see coming. This is a theme that Ivy has noted throughout the story itself. She’s also shown us that no matter what comes toward the characters’ way, they’re able to overcome each and every situation. An enjoyable read, this is one book I’ll dive into time and again.
