    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...

    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. Even girls made of stars buy into those lies sometimes. ...

    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. ...

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is the reason why I will never stop reading YA books. This book made me feel like I was drowning and given one second to come up for air before being shoved back under the water. It was so raw and intense that at times I had a lump in my throat from trying no...

    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...

    ?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 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...

    This is not a book I am worthy of reviewing. This is a masterpiece of human emotion, of writing, of character development. It is March whenever-I-finished-this-review and this is still the best book I have read this year. So Girl Made of Stars follows Mara, whose twin brother Owen h...

    This topic is so important. People need to talk about this. There were a few scenes and things that bothered me, that's why it's not a 5 star book. But it's still a book I'd recommend to everyone! ...
