This book makes you think, and it makes you feel. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this book.
Natasha's getting deported tonight. Daniel's pretty sure that fate has brought them together. Natasha doesn't believe in anything as flimsy as fate. Daniel's not in love, but he's definitely getting there.
I absolutely loved The Wrath and the Dawn, so when I heard that Renee Ahdieh was writing a retelling loosely based on Mulan I was very excited. And I was not disappointed. I think it was Roshani Chokshi who described Renee Ahdieh's writing as "butter", and I cannot think of a more accurate description. It is rich, and smooth, and velvety, and makes you wonder how you managed without it before.
I had heard so many good things about this series from people who I really trust, so my expectations were pretty high going in. This, as it turns out, was a mistake. I was promised rich politics, morally grey characters, blindsiding betrayal, and fascinating magic. I expected strong worldbuilding and intriguing characters. I got none of the above.
This book was super hit and miss for me. There were parts that I really enjoyed and appreciated, but there were just as many parts that made me uncomfortable. The overall reading experience was mediocre at best.
Starfall is filled with just as much action, crime, and lawlessness as Starflight. It reads like an episode of Firefly (which if you haven't watched Firefly, you should definitely go find it on Netflix).
Andie's a planner. And she's got this summer on lockdown. She's been accepted into a pre-pre-med summer program at Johns Hopkins, which will be a welcome escape from the media attention surrounding her father's political scandal. But then the scandal causes Andie's acceptance to be revoked. Now she's got to figure out what to do with her summer at home - with her father.
This book was hands-down hilarious. Ben is a highly entertaining narrator, who views the world with a wonderfully dry and absurd sense of humour.
