    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. Girl Made of Stars follows Mara, whose twin brother Owen has ...

    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...

    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! ...

    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. ...

    I usually don't review DNFs but I really would've appreciated it if people had told me about certain themes and elements in the book before I read it -- so see this as me paying it forward. !MOSTLY TW RAPE! I knew going in that GIRL MADE OF STARS is about rape and that it's prob...

    Wow, this book was heavy. This story follows a teenage girl named Mara who finds herself in a terrible situation. Her twin brother who she thinks the world of, has raped his girlfriend, one of her closest friends Hannah. She is put in such an awkward position of wanting to defend her b...

    still processing. please note: trigger warnings for this book for sexual assault. thank you hmh teen for sending me an early review copy. ...

    Oh my GOD this was so good. Even if it made me cry on the subway a few times. ...

    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...

    Thank you to the publishers for sending me a physical copy in exchange for review. THIS REVIEW ALSO FEATURES ON MY BLOG R A M B L E I?ve read two of Ashley Herring Blake?s books and they?ve both ripped me to shreds. Her beautifully diverse books have a way of making you ...

    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'M CRYING. THIS COVER IS THE PRETTIEST THING I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE. ...

    I honestly can?t find the perfect words right now to express how I feel about GIRL MADE OF STARS, except to tell you that it?s important, and it?s well-written, and it inspired such a strong emotional response from me. ...

    I honestly have no idea what I can even say. I can't even begin to express what this book means. My heart hurts. Full RTC and a rating I'm just an emotional mess atm. ...

    When we originally meet Mara, she is still hurting from a recent break up from her best-friend-turned-girlfriend Charlie--trying to figure out what their new 'normal' is going to look like. But then Mara's life is flipped upside down and she is faced with an either bigger heart...

    This. This is why I never said anything. Because no one ever believes the girl. I am in shock. This book has set such high standards for me in YA novels. I was thrilled to have picked this up at a bookstore a while ago -- finally, I got my hands on this! But as I read reviews, u...

    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...

    flawlessly heart wrenching ...

    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. Girl Made of Stars follows Mara, whose twin brother Owen has ...

    What else is there to do? What else is there for any girl to do, when everyone but her can forget everything like a random bad dream? After breaking up with her girlfriend/best friend, Mara's greatest comfort comes from her twin brother, Owen - until her best friend accuses him of ...

    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...

    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 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...

    This book is truly fantastic! Its such an important, relevant and heart-breaking read, and the author wrote it in both a beautiful and shockingly real way. It's seriously one of the best books I?ve ever read! I'm going to try my hardest to do it justice in this review, but honestly I...
