At Santa Cruz Central High School, they called them the misfits, the outcasts, the weirdos. But most of us knew them as the Lost Boys…
The Girl in the Love Song, book one in the Lost Boys, an interconnected coming-of-age series of standalones, from USA Today bestselling author Emma Scott, is live!
Miller Stratton is a survivor. After a harrowing childhood of poverty, he will do anything it takes to find security for himself and his mom. He’s putting all his hopes and dreams in the fragile frame of his guitar and the beauty he creates with its strings and his soulful voice.
No one expects to meet the love of their life at age thirteen. But the spunky rich girl steals Miller’s heart and refuses to give it back.
Violet McNamara’s life hasn’t been as simple as it looks. Her picture-perfect family is not so perfect after all. Her best friend Miller is her one constant and she is determined not to ruin their friendship with romantic complications.
But the heart wants what it wants. As Miller’s star begins to rise to stratospheric heights, what will it take for Violet to realize that she’s the girl in all of his love songs?
The Girl in the Love Song features two original songs written by Emma herself.

WOW! Feels like a while since I read Emma’s book and once again she blew me away with The Girl in the Love Song. I forget how much I miss the author’s words and stories. From the very beginning I was drawn to young Violet. She reminds me so much of Izzy (Emma’s daughter). What little I know of Izzy (that the author shared over the years), I see her in this heroine – the sweet, kindhearted, caring, eager to protect everyone, and save the whole world if she could. I see a girl who would give someone a shirt off her back to make sure they are warm. I see a wise and matured young lady with amazing human spirits. I simply ADORE Violet.
Miller’s life is heartbreaking. Abandoned by his father at a young age, Miller and his mother were destitute. They were homeless, living in their broken car in a park and lacking basic human needs of food and running water. Miller also suffered from Diabetes. Without proper nutrition and healthcare it is life threatening when his blood sugar level fluctuated to each extreme. Despite all Miller endured, he never loses sight of who he is and what he wants to accomplished in life. Miller is talented, caring, honest, selfless, simply an extraordinary young man. Miller and Violet met when they were young teens. Violet found him sitting outside her window and invite him up to her room (very Romeo and Juliet-ish :)). They talked, ate, and hung out. Over the years, Violet and Miller became inseparable and best of friends. Things started to change during their senior years of high school when Violet and Miller realized they love each other all along. Unfortunately, the timing was never quite right. Violet and Miller did not want to risk losing each other over romantic entanglement. Their friendship is constant and most important in both of their rocky home life. Violet and Miller’s love story really is beautiful. Lots of hiccups, angsts, and mis-opportunities but their love blossomed and it was beautiful to see. Violet and Miller are truly kindred spirits and soulmates. Every time I pick up one of Emma’s books I don’t expect just a simple love story with roses and sunshine. It’s always emotional and full of feels. The author also always leaves behind a few meaningful messages that is inspirational, profound and most likely will change your perspective in life. The Girl in the Love Song was an emotional story about friendships, first loves, coming-of-age, friends-to-lovers romance. Beautifully written as always. Simply magnificent!
Can’t wait for Holden and River’s story.
All the stars in the world!
