Where the Stars still Shine

Where the Stars still Shine
Bloomsbury
Stand alone
Net Galley
Sept 25

Callie has been living with her mom. It hasn't been the easiest life. When her mom is driving in a car with a busted tail light and No drivers  licence. She finds out that she was kidnapped from her dad. She goes and lives with him in Florida. Her dad has a new family .

Callie has been on her own for so long, and she has nightmares still. She isn't used to living with a family and checking in with her dad. She is also living in a air steam for the time being.

She meets her cousin Kat  and her friends. She also has known one type of relationship with boys since she has been moving so often. She meets Alex and very attracted to him. While meeting Kat , she learns that he is bad news.

Callie starts sleeping with Alex and keeping secrets. She doesn't know what she wants out of life. She also meets her big Greek family , and her Grandma.

This book was amazing and I was crying while reading it. I loved that she learned to stand on her own two feet, and that she let others into her life. She also learns about having a family. She is struggling with friendship with Kat. I loved that this book touched on the same subject as another book I read ( Uses for Boys) but did it better. I loved that this book had some romance but the relationships were important.

Alex has a job on the boat , and there you can see the stars shining in the night time. I also know that stars are dirty looking masses, but far away they are beautiful. I loved learning so many Greek words.

Now I need to read her other book.

Book Review= B+

Thank so much to Bloomsbury for the book and this is my Honest Review
This book comes out Sept 25
