When Sylvie loses the diamond from her late mother's ring, her best friend, Cherise, insists it's a sign that love is about to enter Sylvie's life. Yeah, right. Sylvie doesn't believe in signs -- she only stargazes through her telescope. But she also knows Cherise won't drop it, so to humor her Sylvie agrees to date the next

The last chick lit book I own, thank the flying spaghetti monster! I originally bought this for a college class in which we never read it, and I can see why. I knew what was going to happen every step of the way, but that didn't make it any less fun, like a low budget romantic comedy without the contrived misunderstanding in the middle. I'd pick it up if you just want something cute and easy.

Sylvie loves the stars -- the scientific aspect of them, that is. Her best friend Cherise, on the other hand, loves the stars for their ability to predict the future. Sylvie has never put up with Cherise's predictions, but then Cherise predicts Sylvie will meet her true love. And then Adam comes into Sylvie's life, so maybe there's more to Cherise's predictions than once believed...

This book was entertaining at the beginning, but then towards the halfway mark I lost interest. There wasn't a lot

All of Sylvie's stars are aligned, just the way she likes them. She has carefully mapped out her future, right down to her Yale scholarship and plans to become an astronomer, just like her late mother.

Is it any wonder she refuses to listen when her best friend, Cherise, tells her there's love in her near future? Love is too distracting, and Sylvie doesn't want any part of it. But, when handsome and seemingly perfect Adam enters the picture, Sylvie

Adam made me want to gag. While everything, supposedly anyway, was perfect about him, every detail about him made me suspicious. His sincerity made me question his motives. His attachment to Sylvie made me wonder whether he was obsessive. His thoughtfulness made me think he had to be some serial killer in disguise. You get the picture. He was just too perfect that I expected his character to fall to pieces after the shocking unveiling of his true image. But. That didn’t happen. At the end, he wa ...more

I've read multiple Simon Romantic Comedies, but I'm not sure where this one would rank. First off, Adam was so... dull! HE was the shadow, not Tyler. Adam was just way to perfect and i was waiting for him to do something terrible! But it never happened. Tyler on the other hand was a little bit freaky! I don't understand how he had never spoken to Sylvie in his entire life! He's pretty mysterious though, so I would've given him a go! :) I absolutely LOVED Cherise (Sylvie's bff) she just makes my ...more

This book In the Stars by Stacia Deutsh and Rhody Cohon, is a romance comedy about two best friends Cherise and Sylvie. Two friends but different views on stars or star readings. Cherise is a kind of girl that make predictions by looking at stars, Sylvie doesn't believe those things at all. And of course something happens that will change her mind, even though every book is kind of predictable now, there is still a twist here and there that will kind of shock you.
this book has that kind of twist

Sylvie love astronomy but she's isnt as obessesd as Cherise. Cherise's life practically depended on astronomy signs but Sylvie knows its not true, who believe in that stuff! But when Sylive looses the diamond from her mother's ring, a whirlpool hitted SYlvie. This is only the beginning of Sylive's love life. Now she has Cherise on her back 24/7 telling her whats about to hit her! Should Sylive start listening to Cherise's "superstitious theories"? or is Sylvie better off alone?

Sylvie is a straight A girl that wants to get into Yale because it was always what her mom wanted. However, in the few weeks before the prom, her friend told her that she will meet the guy of her dreams. none of them knew that it was not the new student, but her friends twin brother.
this book is kind of funny and a little informational on astrology. This talks about scientific things that i did not know but were kind of interesting.

Another cute Simon Pulse romantic comedy! This time the plot deals with zodiac signs, something I find interesting albeit ludicrous-I have no belief that the stars can explain my personality, life, or future. Regardless, it was a cute framing device for the story which focuses on two best friends in addition their love lives.

Recommends it for: people looking for a mediocre, light, summer read
This book was okay, but it definitely wasn't a great novel or anything. It was very predictable and kind of silly. It was a light read, and romantic comedy, so it could be a good summer read for the beach, but overall it wasn't a great book.
Oct 05, 2009 Siera rated it liked it
This was cute ... it was a little less predictable than I'm used to, so that was good. It was spunky, but I was anticipating the romantic twist from page one. Also ... well frankly, Sylvie bothered me just a bit. However, a good read overall.

It's really funny because the two main characters and best friends are complete opposites. One is into the science of astronomy and one likes horoscopes, predictions and astrology.

It's a good book to get you out of your reading slump. Even though it gets predictable in the end, it's still a good book, made me smile (:

Although this was a light romantic comedy, it was different enough to make it stand out. It was cute, funny, clever and enjoyable.
