He is cool, confident, and definitely popular crowd material—everything Adrienne's not.

Starlight is a light and easy read that I easily devoured in a couple hours. It was fun but still a bit thought provoking. There are some bully issues in the book, which I enjoy reading about because I find myself emotionally involved in those kinds of stories.

Adrienne is teased and made fun of in school. Her mom is disappointed and wants more from her. She has no friends and doesn’t fit in anywhere. She’s sad and depressed. One night she wishes on a star and that changes her whole life. The sta

I received a review copy of this book for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl.

I'm a sucker for beautiful covers. And starlight. Put the two together, and you've got me hook, line, and sinker! Starlight is a fun read that draws you in right away; I love it when I begin a book that's so easy to get into quickly. There were times I laughed and other times I felt like punching those popular bullying girls even though I'm not a violent person. (I swear I'm not!)

Real rating: 4.5/5 stars

Thank you to CBB Promotions for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Starlight is about Adrienne, a high school girl who is always bullied and feels as though she is the sole inhabitant in Loserville. One day, she wishes that she could shine, just like the stars in the sky. Little does she know that her wish is about to be granted, by Saiph, an actual star! She is then presented with the opportunity for three wishes to be granted. Wi

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Starlight is a cute story with a touch of the paranormal and a touch of romance. The plot is sweet and rather adorable which I think would appeal to a younger YA audience. I liked the message main character Adrienne learned.

Adrienne is a miserable high school girl. Though she tries to fly under the radar, things keep happening to draw her into a spotlight that includes bullying and teasing. What girl hasn't looked into the sky

((review will soon be posted in MY BLOG!))

I enjoyed some parts of the book, but I think it lacked some detail. I like how much you can relate with the characters, especially with our little protagonist, Adrienne Speck, a very unpopular girl who is constantly ridiculed because of the poem they supposedly hated. I also like the originality of the book! When you read it, it doesn't remind you much of anything (except for genies minus the lamps.) (haha!)

What I didn't like, though, is that the boo

This was a very sweet and endearing read. I finished it in a couple of hours. It was very predictable but I really enjoyed it.

I really like Adrienne. She's very relatable in the sense that you always want to fit in but can feel all alone in the world. She's bullied at school but I like that she still has a sense of humor. Her musings are pretty funny.

I adored Saiph. At first he came of kind of cocky and a bit of a jerk but he's also extremely sweet. I like how he doesn't let Adrienne introvert

This book totally charmed its way into my heart. I devoured it in a single sitting, it was so adorable! I love a sweet teen tale and this certainly didn't disappoint with the arrival of a very odd but totally loveable stranger to grant the main character, Adrienne, three wishes. Starlight is a little quirky, light-hearted and fun with some heart-wrenching moments in between. Everything you could want from a teen romance with an awesome fantasy twist. At times it reminded me of the movie Stardust ...more

THE REVIEW

Why this book?

I love Chelsea M. Campbell's work

What I thought

I enjoyed this alot, though it almost lost a star because the main character constantly belittled herself. With said I loved the dynamic between Adrienne and Saiph. And I really liked all the shenanigans Saiph caused. The mean kids in this book though were really mean I just wanted to punch them in the face. I really enjoy this authors writing though and look forward to more from her.

Overall it was a great read that I recomme

I just finished Starlight by Chelsea M. Campbell, and I have to say the story and the book were just adorable. This was a super-fast read for me, at an estimated 140 pages in length, but I enjoyed it so much that I let my 11 year old daughter read it after I vetted the tale for traumatizing, steamy parts. While I have zero experience with the author’s work, another author that I follow recommended her on Facebook so I purchased the book on Amazon for a few dollars. In a world where there are so ...more

My thoughts on this are complicated.

The good - I loved the set up. A fallen star, coming down to earth to grant three wishes? That's a great idea. The sugared aroma of Saiph is also interesting. I love Chelsea's quirky little tidbits that are in all of her works and just give it that silly creativity. This novella was somewhat shorter than most and so I got through it fairly fast. The writing is spectacular as usual.

Don't know why the rating of this story is quite low, because I'd give it 4 stars with clear conscience. It simple, funny and entertaining read, shown through the eyes of a teenage girl. Of course, there are many silly moments, where you wonder if there are some places on Earth where teenagers really behave like that (my personal experience of the school years was different), and the heroine is too anti-social at first, but nevertheless, I liked reading this book, character development and the e ...more

I'm glad I read the book, because there were times that I did enjoy it. The problem was that it was too predictable, the characters were too immature, and the length of the book was too short. However, I did really enjoy Chelsea M. Campbell's writing. Her writing style is very done and made me keep reading. I may not have enjoyed this particular story, but it definitely won't stop me from trying her other work. In the end, don't just take my word for it. Read it for yourself and form your own op ...more

Chelsea M. Campbell grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where it rains a lot. And then rains some more. She finished her first novel when she was twelve, sent it out, and promptly got rejected. Since then she's written many more novels, earned a degree in Latin and Ancient Greek, become an obsessive knitter and fiber artist, and started a collection of glass grapes. Besides writing, studying ancient ...more
