^Epub ⇘ DJ Rising ☠ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB free

Scored an early copy Marley is the coolest Can t wait for this one to come out for real so everyone can read it While I felt DJ Rising might be a bit unrealistic, it was an interesting, heartwarming story.Marley has a hard life His mother is a heroin addict, so Marley must earn enough to support both himself and his mother Totally on his own He attending a prestigious high school on scholarship, and all the rich kids at the school know he s not one of them But he has a strong desire to go to college, and he works hard and gets straight As.But, the most important thing to Marley is music His dad, who was killed in a car accident, got him started DJing, and Marley s band instructor has helped him hone his skills It s all Marley dreams of being a DJ at a popular club.Marley gets some opportunities to DJ, and meets some people who help him He also makes some progress in the romance department Things might be looking up at home too For a while, Marley sees all his dreams coming true.Marley really has it together Almost too much together He has some great friends, but really not much of a support system, and at the beginning of DJ Rising he s working and studying, and cleaning and cooking and it all seems a bit too easy.There are a lot of descriptions of being a DJ The songs he plays and how he mixes them together Also, how he tries to create his own music All the parts about his passion for music and DJing got really repetitive.My favorite part of DJ Rising is the last 25% The tension builds Marley meets some real obstacles and he overcomes them successfully Parts of this resolution are a bit lucky, but it still made me feel good.Teens who love music would definitely be drawn to DJ Rising It s a story about how working hard and sticking with your dreams can all pay off a message that s important to today s teens. DJ Rising by Love Maia was one of the best books that I had ever read The reason I liked this book was because of the emotion that the author stirred up in the reader the way the many twists and turns embraced the plot how a young boy named Marley and his love for music and spinning as a DJ took him from his shabby school and a heroin addicted mother to spinning in a DJ Competition in one of the greatest clubs in the city the club that Marley sat across from every day after finishing work the club that he dreamed of spinning in every night Fever How he got there is a longer story involving an amazing DJ spinner named Hawk Hawk was the man that spun on the tables right after Marley after he got the invitation to spin at a club named Cream He tells him that he is worthless and can t spin, however later signs him up for a competition at Fever and offers to tutor and school him on how to spin efficiently Halfway through the story, Marley s mother breaks from her month long period of composure and suddenly overdoses on heroin when Marley gets home from the club He calls 911 and she gets taken to the hospital in a severe coma and struggling on the verge of life support At the hospital, he calls Hawk and lets him know that he isn t coming to the DJ competition because he needs to stay with his mother while she s in her coma He later decides to go to the competition anyway after his mother passes away, so that she didn t die for nothing I like this part of the story because it shows that Marley wasn t a person that gave up after struggling from a hard blow He spins at the club in Fever and wins the competition this is my favorite part of the story because it was completely unexpected Marley didn t expect to win and he believed that it was good enough that he got to spin at the greatest club in the city, and then Hawk and his friend runs out to get Marley, who was walking out Marley eventually moves in with his newfound family that he met at his mother s funeral. DJ Rising by Love Maia is a realistic fiction novel about Marley Johnywas Dieago Dylan, a junior in high school who has a serious passion for music This sory is about him as a young teenager who wants to soon make it as a professional DJ But eventhough his goals are high, Marley has many things to deal with already in his life He has to deal with busing tables at a restaurant to keep some money in his pocket, he has to uphold his scholarship at a school full of wealthier students that he is unable to really relate to, trying to impress his beautiful classmate Lea Hall, and he has to care for his heroin addicted mother While worrying about these aspects of life, Marley still has to focus on his dreams as he continues to fight for DJ jobs to gain notoriety There are many things that I enjoyed about this book First of all I like that I can feel that I am able to relate to this characer because we both come from poverty yet we still have high standards for ourselves I enjoyed the few twist and turns throughout the book that made me cringe and sometimes and made me have a warm smile on my face The best thing about this book is the drama Marley s life continuously kept me on edge and had me excited for every new page I would turn, wondering to read what would happen next But there are times when few characters in the stories personality and descisions would make the reader irate and frustrate them at times Examples can easily be found with Marleys mother as she continues to make blatant mistakes one after another Although some characters can be a pain to read about, I still highly recommend DJ Rising The trials and tribulations of Marleys life and his desire to still succeed only made me continue to open the book and I believe that anyone else who reads this book will appreciate it and feel the same way I seriously plan on reading the author Love Maia s next book. This is a type of story that I love One with hard times and redemption I mean, who doesn t go through hard times and want a happy ending I love the way this plot line flowed The reader meets a young man who has big dreams I love that the plot line isn t filled with partying at clubs and doing stupid things The plot line is full of real life experiences that a lot of teens face today Nothing is painted pretty The characters of the book both amaze and shocked me Marley is a bright young man who is living a tough life Marley amazed me through and through all the time Faced with some of toughest times in his life, Marley keeps his head high and always look towards his dreams I really loved how well the author made it possible to relate to every aspect of Marley s life There is a slight love interest in this book but nothing detailed I still loved the redemption of Marley and his success It s good to see him make it after all he went through.DJ Rising is an amazing story of a teen making it till the very end Marley will amaze you with the strength that he has You see the potential for Marley so you root for him to make it DJ Rising is an surreal and gritty book. Mi sento sempre in difficolt quando devo parlare di un libro che mi ha colpita cos tanto da farmi piangere s , ho pianto, lo ammetto senza vergogna perch mi sembra sempre di non avere mai abbastanza parole per rendergli giustizia La mia storia con questo libro ha inizio due anni fa quando, nel mese di maggio, dopo aver finito di leggere This Song Will Save Your Life di Leila Sales pubblicato dalla DeAgostini l anno scorso con il titolo Resta fino all ultima canzone nei suggerimenti di Goodreads mi apparso il libro oggetto del post Inutile dire che finito immediatamente in wishlist.Se un po avete imparato a conoscere i miei gusti, saprete che adoro i libri che parlano di musica Ma non quelli in cui la musica solo un contorno alla storia d a che si fa spazio a gomitate per attirare la vostra attenzione, bens quelli in cui la musica uno dei pilastri fondamentali della vita del protagonista in cui la musical a del protagonista e se ne parla come qualcosa di tangibile e concreto.E DJ Rising ha tutto quello che cerco in un libro del genere, una perfetta combinazione di elementi che ho amato in altri tre libri che sono diventati i miei preferiti Se pensate che il nome del protagonista sia strano, non vi preoccupate c una spiegazione per quello praticamente all inizio del romanzo Marley un ragazzo di sedici anni, vive nella parte pi povera della citt , orfano di padre da quattro anni e deve prendersi cura della madre che da quando ha perso il compagno scesa in una spirale distruttiva di erba, alcol ed eroina Tutto il peso dell affitto ricade sulle spalle di Marley, che lavora quasi ogni sera in un ristorante in cui serve ai tavoli, sparecchia e poi resta anche a fare il lavoro notturno di lavapiatti E non dimentichiamo lo studio per mantenere i voti alti alla Ellington Prep, una scuola prestigiosa in cui entrato insieme ad altri suoi amici grazie ad una borsa di studio con la speranza che poi questa gli aprir le porte per un college il pi lontano possibile da casa Le uniche cose che gli sollevano il morale sono il sedersi fuori dal Fever sognando di essere lui a far ballare tutta la gente al suo interno e sperimentare nuovi suoni con i dischi e i piatti ereditati da suo padre La vita sembra scorrere normale, tra una madre quasi sempre catatonica e la casa invasa dei suoi fidanzati e amici tossici che svuotano il frigo e i ragazzi ricchi a scuola che si credono meglio di tutti coloro che sono entrati grazie alle borse di studio.Ma poi una sera Marley riceve l offerta pi inaspettata di tutte mentre suona ad una festa a casa di amici, gli viene proposto di sostituire all ultimo un DJ che si rotto un braccio in piccolo club sabato sera l occasione che Marley stava aspettando, un piccolo primo passo verso una carriera professionista da DJ.E proprio quando Marley si convince che si trattato di un unica occasione, un altra telefonata inaspettata sconvolge la sua vita il proprietario di uno dei club pi in della citt lo vuole assumere Peccato sia convinto che Marley abbia ventun anniVi conceder che sia un po irrealistico, su come questo sedicenne riesca ad ingannare un po tutti spacciandosi per un maggiorenne Ma non questo il punto, perch poi la realt prende il sopravvento e lo fa nella maniera pi violenta possibile La fine stessa realistica, ma ovviamente non vi posso dire in che modo altrimenti rovinerei tutto la storia di come Marley scelga di essere finalmente un po egoista e di inseguire i suoi sogni, anche quando sua madre e il suo fidanzato commetteranno uno dei peggiori atti immaginabili la storia di come Marley continui ad onorare suo padre e il legame che li univa attraverso la musica la storia di come Marley trovi una sorta di famiglia nella crew del Cream, che ad ogni chiusura del club si trova a casa del barista Hogan per un after party la storia della nascita di Marley come DJ Ice sotto la guida del mentore pi acido della storia quando al Fever il club dei sogni di Marley viene organizzata la prima battaglia tra DJs con in palio un posto da regular una sera a settimana Mi sono emozionata tantissimo con Marley, mi sono arrabbiata e ho pianto insieme a lui Ama profondamente la musica e nonostante tutto il dolore che deve affrontare si rimette in piedi e, quando da solo non ce la fa, ha gli amici vecchi e nuovi a ricordargli che forte abbastanza da potercela fare Ho trovato giusto che abbia mostrato egoismo, come ogni adolescente che vuole vivere il meglio dei suoi anni e invece costretto a prendersi cura di una madre che tutto fuorch questo, ma ho capito anche i suoi sensi di colpa nel lasciarla a se stessa e la rabbia verso di lei quando gli ha rovinato ancora una volta i suoi sogni un libro scorrevole, crudo, pieno di dolore ma anche di speranza per una vita migliore Ho trovato molte affinit con altre tre libri che ho amato con il gi citato This Song Will Save Your Life di Leila Sales per il modo in cui sia Elise che Marley si esprimono attraverso i suoni che creano con le canzoni e per la voglia che hanno di far ballare la gente e farla perdere nel loro mondo con Fall for Anything di Courtney Summers per il modo in cui Marley era pi legato al padre e per come la madre andata in pezzi alla sua morte dimenticandosi che anche il figlio soffriva nello stesso modo in cui successo a Eddie Reeves con la differenza che sua madre non si era data all eroina e aveva la sua migliore amica che provava a tirarla su con Sorta Like a Rock Star di Matthew Quick perch tutti i sentimenti contrastanti di odio, a, pena, dolore e rabbia che Marley prova per sua madre sono gli stessi che Amber Appleton provava per sua madre alcolizzata e la loro reazione la stessa ad un determinato evento.Lo stesso Matthew Quick uno degli autori che ha scritto una recensione positiva a DJ Rising e non credo sia solo per l affinit della tematica DJ Rising un libro che parla di musica, di come questa faccia da colonna sonora e portante nella vita di Marley e di come gli permetta di affrontare tutto quello che ha passato e tutto quello che verr in futuro E se anche non diventer un DJ di fama internazionale, sa che comunque la sua una passione che non si esaurir mai e che gli amici che ha trovato sono l unica vera famiglia di cui ha bisogno. I love Marley Here is a guy that is given a tough set of life circumstances and inspires you while he rises above it all I was given an advanced copy of the book to read and I picked it up on a Friday afternoon and didn t get much sleep that night because I couldn t put it down The story pulls you in and stays with you Marley inspires This is a great story 5 Stars.
