Annabella Baker has always lived a normal life with a loving family. She had dreams of going to college and becoming a dancer. But the summer before her senior year, the life she knew is ripped away from her, and she’s left wondering if it ever really existed in the first place. Six months later, Annabella is living an entirely different life. The loving family she had no longer exists, and the girl who dreamed of being a dancer can barely walk. She spends most of her time getting into trouble and living in denial over what happened. One night she takes things one step too far and is left dealing with the consequences. Put under house arrest, Annabella can no longer run away from her problems. With the help of her cute, sweet neighbor, Luca Benton, she rediscovers the girl she used to be, and finally learns the truth about what really happened that horrible day that changed her life forever.

Five boundless Stars

Annabella, a girl who thinks fireworks are fireflies and wants it to rain glitter. Who aspires to become a great dancer.This is a story of a girl, so consumed by loss that she no longer thinks of fireworks as fireflies and could care less if it rains glitter. Who may never dance again. After a tragic accident and the loss of those she loves. She spirals into a world full of danger, chasing after the numbness. This really is sad, heartbreaking, and touching. How someone changes and has to learn to be somewhat of the old girl she use to be. I really wanted to shake Anna and tell her to stop. There are people who love her and care for her. But the secrets she’s keeping eat at her, until it becomes all consuming. The writing was very poetic to me and the feelings were very deep and raw. That only comes so often in books I’ve read. To really fall in deep with a character. How she would lie to herself, so she wouldn’t have to really think about this new world that came crashing down on her. I loved Luca and what he brought to her. Little does she know, there’s more about him and more about what he actually saw in her. That in some ways he really knew, the real Annabella. Even if your broken, you can be put back together and realizing that even though your life will not be the same. It should never keep you from living. “One foot in front of the other, Anna. Time to live again.”
