    Owen and his twin sister, Mara, have been close for their entire life--bonded by their twinhood, joint storytelling, and love of the stars--particularly their "own" constellation. But that all changes when Mara's good friend, Hannah, accuses Owen of rape. Suddenly Mara finds herself to...

    I can?t think about Owen. I can?t attach his name to Hannah on a hospital bed, bandages on her wrist, tears on her lovely face. 4 1/2 stars. I cried. Girl Made of Stars is about a situation that for the vast majority of us is not only horrifying, but unimaginable. For other f...

    This story was amazing. It was heartbreaking and hard to read and so damn amazing. I love love loved Mara. I love her strength, especially when she thinks she doesn?t have any. I love her loyalty and her stubbornness and her empathy and her everything. She?s a fantastic MC. ...

    This story stirred my heart. I absolutely needed to read it when I learned it was about a girl whose twin brother is accused of sexually assaulting his girlfriend at a party. It sounds like such an impossible situation. Who do you believe? Your brother, who you?ve known since bef...

    I was so excited to read this because ALL my friends have given it a four or five-star rating. I was expecting to LOVE this book and CRY and just, in general, be emotionally wrecked. Sadly, I didn't feel ANYTHING. 2.5 stars!! Even though I appreciated the story a LOT more the seco...

    ?But if I?m made of stars, then where am I? Where?s the real me?? This book broke me. It physically hurt to read it. It was so painful I cried most of the time. But it was worthy every single tear. So worth it. This is a story that needed to be told, needed to be heard, n...

    I feel wrung out emotionally after reading this. This was my first Ashley Herring Blake novel, and I?m going to pick up her other books as soon as I can. Her writing was beautiful and strong. She handled such a devastating topic really well, and in a way that was realistic, brutal, a...

    I feel like I need a pocket of space to curl up in just to wait out the pain of reading this book. Girl Made of Stars is the kind of story that pinches and bites ? unflinching and powerful. The kind of story that slits you open with the truth and leaves your heart bitter, afraid o...

    Beautifully written. I?ve already procured a copy of one of this author?s other works at my library and I?m really excited to read more by her. I like her style. Girl Made of Stars is a melancholy story. It?s mostly about life after sexual assault. And what that means to th...

    Me, thinking about this book at any moment in my life: Even girls made of stars are captives, bound at the wrists and traded like property. Even girls made of stars aren?t asked, aren?t believed, aren?t considered worth the effort unless they can offer something in return...
