 Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller

 Publication: September 24, 2013   WheretheStarsShine 

Summary from Goodreads:

Stolen as a child from her large and loving family, and on the run with her mom for more than ten years, Callie has only the barest idea of what normal life might be like. She’s never had a home, never gone to school, and has gotten most of her meals from laundromat vending machines. Her dreams are haunted by memories she’d like to forget completely. But when Callie’s mom is finally arrested for kidnapping her, and Callie’s real dad whisks her back to what would have been her life, in a small town in Florida, Callie must find a way to leave the past behind. She must learn to be part of a family. And she must believe that love–even with someone who seems an improbable choice–is more than just a possibility.

Trish Doller writes incredibly real teens, and this searing story of love, betrayal, and how not to lose your mind will resonate with readers who want their stories gritty and utterly true.

I have been in a contemporary mood recently. Where the Stars Still Shine has been getting some pretty positive early feedback. The synopsis sounds interesting, but the fact that Melina Marchetta (my favorite author)or blurbed the book makes me want to buy it immediately. Luckily, I won’t have to wait very long for this one’s release.

What are you waiting for? Does The Stars Still Shine sound like a book you can’t wait to read?
