Tour! A Book Review of Uncross the Stars by Janell Rhiannon

Uncross the Stars by Janell Rhiannon
Genre: Young Adult (Contemporary Romance)
Date Published: December 15, 2014
Publisher: Self

Fiona Lavender is the new girl at school. She has a chip on her shoulder and a pension for poetry. Dario Martinez is the star quarterback, and the most unattainable guy on campus. Their stars cross when they are paired to study Romeo and Juliet for a senior English project. Their connection is fragile and undeniable. But, Dario is afraid of what love will do; and Fiona is waiting for love to claim her.

Will they uncross the stars and find the love they both need to heal their pasts?

Uncross the Stars by Janell Rhiannon is a story of first loves and betrayals. I loved the premise behind this story, and was very excited to read it. I didn't completely connect with the characters. Many times they seemed a lot younger than what they were supposed to be in the book. They didn't catch on to things very quickly. Some of the stunts Ryan was pulling were pretty obvious, and no one put it together until the very end. Especially Megan. While I knew girls like her in high school who would do anything for the attention of a guy, she really should have been able to see what was going on long before she did. Fiona and Dario's romance was instant, but they were pretty cute. We get some of Dario's history, but I would like to have known some more of Fiona's history too. Any maybe even Megan's. This was a very quick read, and it kept my attention completely.

Uncross the Stars by Janell Rhiannon was kindly provided to me by Xpresso Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.

Janell has been writing since she was in grade school. In high school, her 9th grade English teacher suggested she consider a career in writing. After a decade in college and a Master's degree in history, she settled into teaching.

Writing never stopped. Stories never stopped. READING fiction never stopped. Now, she writes and publishes on-line. Invisible Wings is her first YA novel, a compilation of short stories centered on teenage life triumphs and tragedies. She believes being a teenager is difficult and wrote Invisible Wings to let teens know they aren't alone. That they matter. That even though life is rough, they can still find beauty and love.

Beside the YA stories close to her heart, she adores Mythology and Fairy tales. Anything magical and mystical. And dragons. And gargoyles.

She currently lives in CA.
