it was amazing

Meg Cannistra’s debut novel, The Trouble with Shooting Stars, feels a bit anachronistic to me, in that it feels like a book that I would have read and adored as a child, but yet I get to experience this perfectly magical and emotional tale as an adult instead, looking intrinsically, finding that childlike wonder still buried in myself.

Cannistra weaves two tales together masterfully; one side carries the personal and family drama the main character, Luna, must endure, the other the mysterious and magical new neighbors that Luna spies on from her window. The story might seem simple at first, but the story digs deep into Luna, and what comes is a poignant, yet uplifting, tale.

Having no interest in giving too much away, I simply urge anyone to read this novel, especially anyone who is fan of fantastical children’s literature. Meanwhile, I’ll be impatiently awaiting her second novel.
