An intensely romantic, “brilliant debut” (Kirkus Reviews) about a dangerous addiction, a fierce rivalry, and a forbidden love.Now is not the time for Carmen to fall in love. And Jeremy is hands-down the wrong guy for her to fall for. He is infuriating, arrogant, and the only person who can stand in the way of Carmen getting the one thing she wants most: to win the prestigious Guarneri competition. Carmen’s whole life is violin, and until she met Jeremy, her whole focus was winning. But what if Jeremy isn’t just hot…what if Jeremy is better?Carmen knows that kissing Jeremy can’t end well, but she just can't stay away. Nobody else understands her—and riles her up—like he does. Still, she can’t trust him with her biggest secret: She is so desperate to win, she takes antianxiety drugs to perform, and what started as an easy fix has become a hungry addiction. Carmen is sick of not feeling anything on stage and even sicker of always doing what she’s told, doing what’s expected.Sometimes being on top just means you have a long way to fall….
I really enjoyed this book -- about a violin prodigy who discovers that between the anti-anxiety meds she has become dependent on, intense pressure from her mother and her own determination to succeed, she's lost the passion for her music.

I thought the main character, Carmen, was well-developed and likeable and I enjoyed the other characters too -- from her driven mom to the hunchbacked violin teacher, to the tutor to the stepfather.

There's a wonderfully real romance, which features some great dialogue. There's also a plot twist that I didn't see coming, and an extremely satisfying ending.

For those who love contemporary young adult fiction, this is a sure thing. For those looking for an entertaining break from paranormal, this is the book for you. I look forward to reading more from this author. Bravo!
Virtuosity is beautifully written and pulls you in from the beginning. Phenomenal break out book for Jessica Martinez and I can't wait to see what else she writes.

If you are a music lover of any kind you'll find that Martinez flawlessly describes music, performing, the sensation/rush music gives you. It's a feeling that is difficult to interpret, yet she does magnificently. If I had to pull out one flaw, I'd say the relationship with Carmen and Jeremy is a bit weak, I wanted more, but that's me. Others will find it perfectly filling. The relationship with her and her mother is intense...and that's using weak vocabulary. This book feels on par with other writers such as Sarah Dessen and Hailey Abbot. Very poetic. Sometimes it dragged too much for me but not enough to stop reading or to derail me from future works.

Overall, great story, a must read!!!!
Great, clean YA fiction. It is so hard to find quality fiction without language, party scenes, and steamy love scenes. I discovered this author while judging her first novel, The Space Between Us, after it had been nominated for a Whitney Award . Martinez is a breakout author, who now has me preordering her newest releases. Her plot lines are real without the shock factor.
What is going to happen next? is a question I had throughout the novel. I found myself on the edge of my seat over and over. A fresh storyline that pulls the reader into the high-pressure world of competitive music. Loved it!
This is a pretty good example of a young-adult novel. The characters and the themes were mostly well developed in the first 3/4 of the book - no spoilers. Virtuosity is very well researched and reflects a thorough knowledge of both the city of Chicago and the careers of classical musicians.
I related to many of the trials she went through, being a musician I felt connected to the story. Page turner
Describes the stressful emotions of a child with a gift. I will look for books written by this author again.
Such an amazing book!!!!!!
