Review by Mayfair

Title: Starcrossed
Author: Josephine Angelini
Genre: Young Adult
Publisher: HarperTeen
Publication date: Available now in hardcover
Reviewed by: Mayfair

Helen Hamilton, a resident of the small island of Nantucket, is different, she doesnʼt know why, all she knows is she finds herself waking up from vivid nightmares feeling like sheʼs walked hundreds of miles, or feeling cramps so bad she needs to go home from school. A family moves onto the island. One of the boys, Lucas Delos, helps Helen find what she really is, her true heritage. The Three Fates have decided that Lucas and Helen will be never be together. Will their true love overcome the power of the Three Fates?

Author Josephine Angelini has created an unpredictable plot, that will have the pages turning. Starcrossed is a Greek mythology and romance twisted book that should be a definite must-have on your book list. Angelini is an amazing author and I truly hope that she will write a sequel to Starcrossed. In fact, the ending of Starcrossed practically screamed the fact that there will be a second book.

If you liked this book you should like these books:
The Pandora Series, by Carolyn Hennesy (ages 8-12)
The Percy Jackson series, by Rick Riordan (ages 8-14)

Torment, by Lauren Kate (ages 12-adult)

Addition by Jake: you might also like Abandon by Meg Cabot (ages 14-adult).
