Every Soul a Star by Wendy Mass
"And as streams of light fan out behind the darkened sun like the wings of a butterfly, I realize that I never saw real beauty until now."
Let's see if I can sum up my reactions quickly.
1) Pretty good plot.
2) Pretty good characters
3) Pretty good writing style.
4) AMAZING descriptions of the night sky, what you can see in a remote campground with a telescope at night, and why people chase eclipses.
I like books that can make me see the world a bit differently. This is one of them. Now waiting for my next starry night....
