What he lacked from his parents, Simon Mackenzie always got from his older brother. All their lives Simon could count on Dylan for the love and support he needed, until he decided it was time to face his own destiny, and try to make do on his own.
Simon knows it was the right decision. He must trust that Dylan taught him enough so he can live his life independently, no matter how difficult it might be. Society’s rules are a mystery to him, and there are times when learning is a challenge, but he makes it do. Even with the constant memories of their troubled childhood, and the dread of their drug-addicted mother’s reappearance.
Teaching music is his way to achieve it all; to interact and reach people without fear, sharing his gift. And teaching Natalie Miller the sounds that can make her break out of her shell is especially rewarding. Through Simon’s melodies, Natalie may once again be able to see the world, even if not with her blind eyes.
Together, Simon and Natalie can both learn how to better face the world, adapt, and thrive, despite their limitations.
Making Do is book 2.5 in the Myself in Blue Series. Even though it can be read as a standalone, this novel makes several references that can be spoilers if you haven’t read the other books beforehand. Therefore, it may be better to read the books in order.
