When the Beat DropsWhen the Beat Drops by Anna Hecker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received When the Beat Drops by Anna Hecker from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. That had no impact on my thoughts. My thoughts are my own.

Maaaaan that was a good story. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I first requested When the Beat Drops. I just knew that it sounded like it could be good, but I wasn’t sure. I’m not sure why I was a little bit skeptical about the book in the first place. But it proved me wrong!

When the Beat Drops was about a girl who started off wanting to play the trumpet for this college or camp program thing but then she gets to tag along with her sister to this party and bumps into a DJ when her sister ditches her and slowly develops an interest for DJing in the story. The DJ aspect of the story was just COOL! There was a bit of a party scene, and drugs, and sex involved in the story but they didn’t take up the entire story. It’s easy to overlook, especially how the character handled all of the situations she was in. (There was a time when she was being silly, but there was character growth from that!)

I just really liked the DJing part of the story very much. It was just super cool. This story was like P.S. I like you by Jenny Han with a bit of a party scene/ mixed in with it. It is more of a young adult/new adult crossover book so I’d recommend this to older high school students and above in the young adult crowd. I’d say there should be a warning for drugs, sex, and a character death but it’s not terrible. It was very well written.

I definitely would recommend this to anybody who can appreciate the music/DJing part. Again, this book was so cool. I wasn’t able to find much of anything I didn’t like about this book. It’s a five star read for the unique plot, character development and it’s fast pacing. I was able to finish this in about a day if you don’t count the 8 hours of sleep and work in between.

Thank you Netgalley and publishers for giving me the chance to read and review this!
