Book Tour: Heartbreak Symphony by Laekan Zea Kemp | Spotlight

Welcome to my stop on the TBR and Beyond Tours Book Tour for Heartbreak Symphony by Laekan Zea Kemp. When I saw this being pitched as Clap When You Land meets On the Come Up I immediately put this on my TBR – even happier when I saw the tour! I’m hoping my reading goes super well this month so I can squeeze this in! Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom to see the tour schedule for other content creators to find out their thoughts.

Synopsis:

Clap When You Land meets On the Come Up in this heart-gripping story about navigating first love and overcoming grief through the power of music.

Aarón Medrano has been haunted by the onstage persona of his favorite musician ever since his mother passed away. He seems to know all of Aarón’s deepest fears, like that his brain doesn’t work the way it should and that’s why his brother and father seems to be pushing him away. He thinks his ticket out is a scholarship to the prestigious Acadia School of Music. That is, if he can avoid blowing his audition.

Mia Villanueva has a haunting of her own and it’s the only family heirloom her parents left her: doubt. It’s the reason she can’t overcome her stage fright or believe that her music is worth making. Even though her trumpet teacher tells her she has a gift, she’s not sure if she’ll ever figure out how to use it or if she’s even deserving of it in the first place.

When Aarón and Mia cross paths, Aarón sees a chance to get close to the girl he’s had a crush on for years and to finally feel connected to someone since losing his mother. Mia sees a chance to hold herself accountable by making them both face their fears, and hopefully make their dreams come true. But soon they’ll realize there’s something much scarier than getting up on stage—falling in love with a broken heart.
