Well, if that’s the case, I have good news, because there is a FREE e-novella coming this October, THE GIRL WHO READ THE STARS, and just look at this gorge

Please note: I have read an advanced reader copy of the sequel, The Boy With the Hidden Name before this novella so I had some insight into what was happening. Any inconsistencies in my review can be put down to that.

Merrow is a high school girl and a bit of a loner, but she doesn't mind about that part. After all she has the yoga classes she teaches, reading tarot cards, the stars, the way

This was a great story to hold us over until "The Boy With The Hidden Name", and Merrow is my new favorite character in this series- she is amazing!!

The Girl Who Read the Stars is a novella in between the Girl Who Never Was and the Boy With the Hidden Name. It was a good story and fit in perfectly with the series.

This book follows brand new characters. Readers are introduced to Merrow and a cast of whole other characters. Merrow is different, she's not like other people and that's okay with her. She is different than most people in almost every way and she loves her uniqueness. Merrow, who has rainbow hair, two moms, teaches yoga and reads t

Even though this says Novella 1.5 I went ahead and read it before I read the first book which is The Girl Who Never Was. I didn't really feel like I had to read that one in order to understand what was going on. It did however take almost to the end of this novella to find out what secrets were being hid, and I'm not sure had I read the first book I would of known or not.

I wasn't overly impressed with Merrow, but I enjoyed her enough to want to know what happened. After be

I am actually presently surprised by this one. I wasn't a huge fan of the first novel I read in the series, but I found this one to fit quite well into the story line. Its helping to set up for the final book. I really liked how we do follow Merrow and Trow, especially since I we would not have been able to get the back story of them in the next book. I loved all the characters, and I'm thinking that, Merrow especially will become one of my favorite characters in the series. This novella has jus ...more

In comparison to the first novella and first book in this series, this novella has been the weakest. The beginning was extremely hard for me to get into. Merrow's thoughts are a bit too sporadic for my tastes. I feel like the author is trying to do the whole Holden Caulfield type of writing and it's unnecessary for this situation. If anything, it slows the writing and the plot. Some interesting characters introduced. I liked the relationship between Merrow and Trow. For the length of the novella ...more

This was a free book at the app store. Just because it's a free book, doesn't mean it's going to be a really bad book.

At first, I thought that it was longer than it was and it turned out that there was a thirty page preview for the next one.

The only thing I can complain about is that I have to pay for the other books that follow this one. I wish they were all free because it was so good!! :D

Then Merrow finds out that she is in danger. She rushes home to find that her parents are missing. Her and Trow go to find them, but get in more danger. Will this danger ever stop?

Does Trow get a novella too?

Cute little side story that helps make a little more sense of the things happening in Boy with the Hidden Name. Worth the read for that alone.

DNF. I could not get into this story. I loved the first book and am excited for book 2 but this was not for me.

Way too repetitive!!! But I enjoy the whole idea. I hope it plays out well. I'm liking Trow's character. The last bit of this book is where the juice is at.
This was fun. Best thing is the fact that I didn't have to read the first book (which I didn't) to enjoy and be able to understand this story.

Skylar’s first story was a tale of romantic intrigue involving two feuding factions of squirrels. Think “Romeo & Juliet” but with bushy tails and added espionage. She was seven.

Since that time, Skylar’s head has been filled with lots of characters and lots of drama. She is delighted to be able to share some of it with all of you now, because, honestly, it was getting pretty loud and crowded in
