Review: Drawn together yet torn apart

Title: Starcrossed
Author: Josephine Angelini
Book summary:
" Helen Hamilton has always tried to hide how different she is—no easy feat on an island as small as Nantucket, and only getting harder as she finds herself haunted by hallucinations and vivid nightmares.
It's not until she crosses paths with Lucas Delos at school that Helen's true heritage is finally revealed. Yet even as Lucas helps her awaken to her startling powers, they can never be together—not unless they can break free from the tragic destiny the Three Fates have in store."

Okay people this book is worth reading. If nothing else, the cover deserves to be drooled over. This book is well written, well paced and simply well done! I received a copy of this book for my birthday from my best friend and after reading the summary; I knew it would be a home run. It didn’t disappoint. This book is full of Romance, Action and a Strong bond between two best friends.
            I have always been a fan of Greek mythology and am always on the lookout for new books that incorporate it into the plot line. To me this is a Percy Jackson meets Romeo and Juliet refined and perfected novel. Suspenseful. Delicious. Waiting to be read by YOU. Besides, with all these twists and turns you will surely be on your toes up to the very end. The ending will leave you full of questions and desperately awaiting the next book.

This book receives 5 hearts I loved it!
