APC PUBLISHER: Nikki Godwin RELEASED: June 13, 2016 GENRE: ya, mystery LENGTH: 179 pages FORMAT: ebook, paperback
When sixteen-year-old Piper Davenport's mom packs up their lives and heads to the coastal Florida town of Coral Sands, Piper doesn't care much for the view...until she catches a glimpse at Rooks Carter.
Her mom's "look but don't touch" policy regarding the boy next door is all but impossible to maintain, especially since he's helping his dad restore Piper's new home, the Calloway Cottage. A gorgeous, shirtless boy makes this boring little town a bit more exciting.
But after Piper and Rooks discover a secret in the walls of the cottage, they have a chance to unravel the biggest mystery in Coral Sands history - unless someone unravels them first.
THREE BOUNDLESS STARS The Summer of Lost wishes is a story about Piper, she moves to her mom's old hometown. Into a beach cottage, her mom had to have. Turns out her mom didn’t tell her everything about this house. It’s a little bit of a mystery, that I felt was interesting. I really wanted to love the story, it sounded really good and intriguing.
Unfortunately, I didn’t really connect with Piper on an emotional level. That’s what I really look for in a story. It was good though and I think it would be great for the younger young adult crowd. It was written well. Just didn’t really grab and hold on to me all the way through.
Overall, Three Boundless Stars
