Truly Yours is a second chance, college, romance novel by Mia Miller. It is the story of Delia and Oscar who meet at summer camp when they are twelve years old. The summer camp is geared towards children who are gifted in the arts; Mia is an artist/painter/sketcher and Oscar is a pianist/singer-song writer. They meet one day when Delia comes upon a bunch of guys who are throwing rocks at Oscar because he has flaming red hair. Delia picks up a rock and attempts to throw it at them, and she misses badly causing the boys to laugh at her. Delia is really clever though because she tells the boys that the camp counselors are behind her causing the boys to scatter. Even though Oscar says that he didn't need her help, he and Delia start conversing and they end up becoming good friends. They figure out a way to spend as much time as possible together at the camp, and end up sharing their first kiss with each other. By the time that the camp is about to end they realize that they love each other, and want to stay in touch. Delia gives Oscar her address and phone number just as he is about to get on the bus to go home, and when she gets home a letter from Oscar is waiting for her, since he went home a week before she did. Delia and Oscar write to each other a lot during the first nine months, but the letters from Oscar become more and more sporadic over time. Delia is really hurt when she doesn't hear from Oscar any more, and so she attempts to forget about him.
Time moves on and before we know it Delia is 18 years old and starting college at NYU, where her brother, Corbin is also attending college. Corbin is a music major and is attempting to start up a band with his best friend, Enzo. As Corbin is showing Delia around campus, Delia sees a red headed guy sitting with a group of guys, and even though he has changed a lot, she knows that the guy is Oscar by looking at his eyes. When Delia goes up to him to say, "Hello", Oscar pretends that he doesn't know who she is. Delia is crushed by his behavior since she knows that he is Oscar. Will Delia and Oscar ever get to know each other again?
I loved this book by author, Mia Miller! I really enjoyed all of the characters in this book, and I'm so pleased that this is the first book in a series! I'm really excited to get to know more about the other characters and what their backgrounds are. Ms. Miller does an excellent job of setting up a story, and in this book we go back and forth in their timelines so that we can better understand their points of view. There is a complex story line in this book that I didn't see coming, and it is very clever. I definitely recommend this book to anyone who loves a great second chance romance!

A connection that lastsReviewed in the United States on 17 July 2018
Enjoyable introduction to a relatively new author. I like the idea of taking a relationship created between two people when they were 12 and seeing how it holds up as young adults finding their way in college, especially when time and distance got in the way. Although this book had chapters from both Delia’s and Oscar’s point-of-view, to me, this felt like Delia’s story. I felt love, sorrow, confusion, anger, and joy along with her, compelling me to root for her happy ending. I enjoyed how the author was able use the story to teach me about artists and how they view their craft and others in their world. The secondary characters were also a lot of fun (especially Corbin, Enzo, Kayla, and Dalton), and I look forward to learning more about some of their stories is future books.

"You sure you're not the evil twin?"Reviewed in the United States on 19 April 2019
A few spelling and grammar errors. Would definitely not re-read. It was an ok story and did keep my interest enough that I finished it.
