REVIEW: Starcrossed

Starcrossed (Starcrossed, #1)Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini 
Pages: 514-US Hardback
Publisher: HarperTeen
Released: May 31, 2011
My Rating: 5/5
Book Summary: How do you defy destiny?

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.

As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.

My Thoughts:
Ladies and gents, i have for you Heather's favorite book of 2011. Starcrossed has left me literally breathless.

Josephine Angelini packed this story full of action, mystery, and a completely riveting and fresh take on a greek gods love story. Main characters Helen and Lucas have been through quite a lot together- and it's only the first book! I will zip my mouth on any other further details for those of you who haven't had the pleasure of picking it up and diving in yet. 

There was never a dull moment of reading. Chapter by chapter tugged at my heart strings and played me like a puppet. I will divulge one piece of information though... hold on to your seats during the last few chapters. Choose to read it and you've signed up for quite a ride.
