    3.5 starsAt times I struggled with some of the characters and story but now that I ve finished the book, I feel like I can sit back and appreciate what the author was attempting to do here Reading the Author s Note at the end of the book helped put things into context for me This might not be a perfect read but one that nonetheless was worthy of my time.High school student Devon is focused on her future She studies hard so she can go to the college of her choice and hopefully nab a ton of scholarship money to pay for it Her goal of becoming an astrophysicist is going to require a lot of schooling but she s determined to make her dream come true She meets Ashton one summer and quickly falls for him Unfortunately he breaks her heart Fast forward to Devon s senior year and guess who is a new student at her school Why Ashton of course If you let someone back into your life who hurt you once before, aren t the odds pretty high that person will break your heart again Is it worth the risk First of all I liked how Devon was totally into science and was out there doing her best to make her dreams come true It s always nice to see a character who is focused and driven in young adult fiction The author introduces some important issues into the story including mental illness It s a topic that is personal to me and I have mixed feelings about how it was handled in the book While there were certain moments and feelings I could relate to, a few times things just felt off In particular at times the dialogue between Devon and Ashton felt unnatural and not realistic I didn t really have a problem with the plot so much as the actual execution I hate saying this but at certain points the story took on a melodramatic vibe and given some serious subjects are explored, it was disappointing I wanted to be 100% emotionally invested in the characters but unfortunately at times I struggled.With that being said though, I am glad I read the book It s not your typical fluffy teenage romance There s some depth to the characters and story even though I wasn t completely happy with the execution The author didn t play it safe with the story and took some chances which is commendable Thank you to the publisher for sending me an advance reader s copy I was not obligated to share my review here and all views expressed are my honest opinion.

    Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestDNF p 151I feel really bad about not finishing this one but I couldn t stand the writing Devon is supposed to be an astrophysicist in the making in her senior year of high school, but she was written like a middle schooler The whole foundation of the star crossed romance is a summer of insta love cheese that ends up going sour, followed by a second chance romance type plot only because they didn t have any real or deep connection before imo , it doesn t really work I skimmed to the end, and while I appreciate that this book tackles some pretty important issues depression, suicide, interracial relationships, and biracial identity this didn t click for me in the strongest way I think I d only be annoyed than I am now if I pushed myself to finish, so I m going to stop now Thanks to the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review 1 to 1.5 stars

    the black biracial rep in this is fantastic.

    I m so torn I understand and appreciate what the author was trying to do, I just don t think it was executed all that well.Devon is a biracial 18 year old girl who is starting her senior year of high school She s focused on getting into her dream college and learning about astrophysics Also enjoying her last year of school with her best friend, Blair.The last thing she expects is to see the guy who ghosted her a year and half ago, after what was the perfect summer relationship Devon is confused and angry to see Ashton again, but those feelings are still there and she s left wondering what exactly happened that summer.First, let s talk about the characters I liked both of them, but it never really got past that I loved Devon s passion for the stars, it s the best thing about her I loved seeing the way she got excited any time she talked about them, and I loved that, no matter what, getting into the college with the best astrophysics program was always her priority.Then there s Ashton I think this book would have really benefited from having some chapters with his POV, though I do understand why it didn t include him as this is Devon s story However, I do think never really seeing where his head is at and seeing all his actions through Devon s POV made it difficult to connect with him But either way, sympathizing with him was all too easy.This book focused on a lot of topics Two of the biggest ones are mental illness and race I thought the biracial rep was really good here There were a lot of good conversations about race in the book and you could see a lot of the microaggressions Devon has to deal with because of the fact she s half black in a predominately white school and dating a rich, white guy.Mental illness is also a huge theme Specifically depression and suicidal ideation This is where a little bit of my mixed feelings come in I found some of the things Ashton talked about and went through very relatable, and some fell a little flat Obviously this is a personal thing, not everyone will feel the same.The romance between Ashton and Devon is my main issue The insta love was strong Also, so everyone knows, this is not a romance book Their relationship was always moving so fast They initially fell in love so quickly, then Devon forgave Ashton super quickly They had their cute moments, I just wish their relationship had been a bit fleshed out Then towards the end, I wish there had been a bit resolution to it.At the end of the day, this won t make any of my favorites list However, I can tell this book was really special for the author, and I don t regret reading it.

    When the Stars Lead to You is a bittersweet, multilayered, contemporary YA romance that deals with a lot of important issues and packs quite a punch Even though the book addresses heavy topics, such as mental illness and racism, it s written in a way that is very engaging and easy to read It s also sex positive, which I really appreciate and want to see of in YA books When the Stars Lead to You ticked all the right boxes for me, I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys YA romance with a substance ARC provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    This review and many others can also be found at Musings of a Book Girl Content Warnings depression, suicidal ideation, suicide attempt, racism, classism, microaggressionsI honestly loved every single word of this book.A lot of people will have issues with the story because it s very much an instalove situation Personally, though, I don t have a problem with this because it s how I tend to be There is no building up to emotions with me I just dive right in This is something the main character, Devon, comes to realize is unhealthy towards the end So while it might make some readers roll their eyes it is talked about.This was one of the most honest portrayals of depression I ve ever read Ronni Davis is an own voices author and it s obvious She goes so deeply into the topic through Ashton and held nothing back It was at times hard to read because of how honest everything was My heart ached for Ashton I really feel that this story will help a lot of people understand how intense and overwhelming depression can be.There are also so many important conversations on race throughout the entire novel Devon put people in their place and I loved seeing her call the mean girl out for her comments that were a joke.The entire thing is also sex positive Devon s mom talks to her beforehand, doesn t make her feel guilty for having sex, and makes sure she has the appropriate resources Ashton and Devon have a conversation before and after having sex Consent is discussed Teens desperately need stories like this.Also, Ashton and Devon got snowed in together and my heart exploded.When the Stars Lead to You is raw and relatable It s a deeply important and powerful debut that will allow so many people to find themselves within the pages Read it Discuss it Tell your friends about it This book needs to be shared A digital ARC was provided by the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
