Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Okay, so I picked this book up from the library randomly when I was stranded at school after my exams, and I thought it was okay. Then I didn't touch it for a week because my books had come in the mail and I wanted to read those more than this one. I wasn't at an interesting point and didn't really care what was about to happen.
Then I got really bored either yesterday or the day before and I began to read it again. I cannot believe I put the book down! This book was so intense! It was original, beautiful, and well written. I just kept on reading.
I feel really bad for Helen and Lucas though. I mean, the mother said that Helen actually wasn't Ajax's kid when Pandora had her in chains. But then she called Helen the House of Thebes cousin in front of a truthseeker.
So I'm assuming that she means cousin the same way people with religious views say that everyone is their brother and sister. Because she wouldn't be lying if that was the case. But if she is lying, why is she lying? What's the point in hurting Helen that way?
I guess I'm just going to have to wait for Dreamless to come out. I am so going to devour that book!
