Eyes Like Stars

Thoughts   Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev, Square Fish / Macmillan 2009, made it to 58 of 356 pages.

WHY I CHOSE THIS:    I was a YA Judge for Book Blogger Appreciation Week one year and I adored the enthusiasm in the reviews of this book that I happened to read. And I love the blue stripe in the hair on the cover. Yes, I was captured by a pretty cover. Sometimes it happens.

WHAT I LOVED:   The dedication:  “For my mother, who left a half-crimped pie crust on the kitchen counter to take me to my first audition.”   (Pie!  *smiles*)

WHAT I didn’t LOVE:   I couldn’t get past the slightly petulant obnoxiousness of the protagonist.   ooops.   Please don’t send me YA-HATE bombs.   I do like YA.  BUT.   This book is not a good match for my sensibilities, sorry.

WHAT’s it ABOUT:    Fantasy?  about a 17 yo girl who lives in a theatre trapped with characters from famous plays.  I do think I was attracted by the unique style and creativity of the narrative.  She is the only one who lives there who is ‘human’, or at least has the ability to leave the theater. Don’t let me tell you any more; please search out some nicer truer real reviews rather than this ‘reaction’. Thank you.  Here’s the link to Fyrefly’s Book Blog Search for this title.  Have fun.

I have offered this to my niece who is under 20 years old.    If she doesn’t want it, I will add it to BookMooch.com.

AND NOW for a public service announcement! It’s time to be aware of Book Blogger Appreciation Week!  Sept 12-16    <– Click on this pretty button to learn all about it.
