"I'm grateful to the publisher for an advance e-copy of this book via NetGalley.

Whew. What a chase...

"At the beginning of March 2020, my English teacher, Mrs A., gave us a list of novels. My eye fell on The Girl Who Could Move Sh*t With Her Mind by J. Ford.

Where The Stars Rise is a hell of a lot of fun. Great writers, magnificent storytelling, and worlds I wanted to spend a lot more time in - no matter how dangerous they were. I had a blast reading it.
