The ways in which the incorporated scientific facts

into storyline 
the storyline being an aspiring astrophysicist I ve never liked sciences because I find it hard to connect to hard facts it either exists or it doesn t it s either like this or it isn t that leave little to personal interpretation but I uite enjoyed Grace s facts I had no idea some planets could have two or suns that s crazyThe writing flowed as did the story I didn t feel like anything was missing though of course I wish was said about Mylo s situation but perhaps he deserves his Own Book I Think He book I think he angel halo Really excited for each and every one of you to read it because it s uite an experience and will make you feel all the emotionsBlog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin I am Grace Carter s hero It s all true Grace is a 17 year old with an ambition to become an astrophysicist During her story she meets Elizabeth Tasker that s totally me in case you weren t paying attention attends several talks by her and chats about the future Being in a book is possibly even stranger than seeing your own book in print for the first time it s inda crazy And also explains why I have an advanced copyBut Grace s story is not in fact about how she meets me Grace s mother is missing and the family is thrown into the perpetual waiting room as they hope for news Grace struggles with finding her own identity in the shadow of a difficult teen parent relationship before realising that to find herself she may first need to find out who her mother really is as a person Voros paints a painfully realistic picture of the pseudo life that must occur during the hunt for a missing person While Grace tries to find hints that tell her how and why her mother disappeared this is no Cluedo game with a box of weapons and motives to be suddenly discovered Instead Voros describes a jigsaw of small facts where each inconseuential thought might be the essential corner piece that allows you to assemble the whole pictureLittered with analogies that will ick start the imagination of even those who have never thought about black holes this is a coming of age book that is impossible not to relate to I think this book really did have the potential for greatness if only it wasn t so heckin longBut overall I really did enjoy itI am a huge fan of any book about astronomy so I really appreciated Grace s character and her fascination with outer space She really looks up to Elizabeth Tasker and I thought the way that was incorporated into the story was really coolI love Milo so much thooooooooooo he s honestly the sweetest And there were some really interesting family dynamics which were complicated and just explored really well which I super appreciatedAlso my love of crime shows meant that I was immediately intrigued by the element of idnapping in the plot and the mystery was really interesting to followI think this book is really good I was just in the mood for a uick cute read and this novel went on for too long Many thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for providing me with a review copy All opinions are my own I almost DNFed this book but I m glad I didn tIt drags at the beginning but I really liked the characters and I was curious enough about the romance brewing between Grace and Mylo that I ept readingIt s an interesting story and it s executed well The writing is good it flows uite well despite the pacing being slow in the first half of the book it still eeps your attention The characters are well developed and the relationship between Grace and her mom GG is intriguing throughout I enjoyed the astrophysics facts scattered throughout the read but then again looking up that Prisoner of Midnight kind of facts is a hobby of mineAll in all this is a solid read I haven t read any of Voros work before but I m definitely gonna check it out now Same goes for Elizabeth Tasker the astrophysicists that s mentioned and referenced in the book And if you like YAcontemporary mother daughter relationships that are going through rough patches and facts about space then this is the book for youCopy received through NetGalleyRating 45 star.

I breezed through this book in less than a day because it was just so enthralling The story hooked me from page one It s a book all about the relationships between mothers and daughters and examines it through the eyes of teenage Grace Carter Grace is such an interesting character in that she feels very ordinary And I don t mean that in any negative manner but so freuently in YA the leading character is of the special snowflake variety but Grace just felt very authentic Yes she had a passion for astronomy in her case but it wasn t overdone to the degree that it was a shoo in that she was gonna be a future Nobel laureate Grace was just Grace She geeked out at times she fell hard for a boy she struggled with her relationship with her mother GG and maternal grandmother Patricia she felt guilty about that relationship with her mother after one day her mom inexplicably disappears she trusts she mistrusts she has a well rounded and believable friendship with her best friend Iris She was a 100% relatable character This book is the best BOSH!: The Cookbook: Simple Recipes. Amazing Food. All Plants. kind of coming of age story all wrapped up with an intense mystery storyline I thoroughly enjoyed it and can t wait to read from this author in future Four and a half starsAn e copy of this book wasindly provided to me by the publisher Kids Can Press via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review Thanks to Edelweiss for a copy of this ARC in exchange for an honest reviewI really wanted to like this novel but I wanted to DNF after 20% I really could not get into it at all1 I felt like the main character was about as dynamic as a piece of cardboard She was a moody brat for a large portion of the novel and her change toward the end felt lacking and didn t ring true Other than the fact that she s super into astronomy I felt like I got no sense of her personality I got a lot of descriptions of what she was doing her memories and her textemail conversations but I left the novel with no real sense of this character 2 Because I felt like the main character was so flat the romance in the novel felt so off The only description we really got of her feelings were some butterflies in her stomach Then they re issing and messing around in the car There was no real build up and it just wasn t something I could root for because I couldn t get invested in them as characters or as a couple3 Really the only character I even halfway enjoyed or felt anything toward was the mom GG More than anyone she was a character with depth and intricacies and interest I didn t necessarily like her especially with the whole TV stunt at the end but I at least felt like I was watching a character develop4 I felt like there were so many points in this novel that could have been fleshed out into
beautiful moments with 
moments with development but they were always cut abruptly short which was I was constantly left wanting but this novel never delivered The writing of this book really worked for me the short chapters and beautiful writing The book is supposed to be 500 pages but it felt like around 300 a real uick read where there was uite a lot of happening Nevertheless the book needs a few trigger warnings for abuse idnapping etcThe plot of the book was actually uite interesting I haven t read Many Books Where One Of The Parents Go Missing So books where one of the parents go missing so was really fascinated by it It was also written very well and the motive and most of the reasons etc were uite realistic while some parts seemed too unrealistic at One of the best YA books I have read this year I started the book expecting a mystery but it isn t central to the novel actually it isn t something you can figure out and it gets resolved uite uickly The book is much about the relationships we create with people around us and how they change and develop over time Grace the main character is extremely likeable curious observant non assuming I found her very relatable although my own family is nothing like hers and astronomy is something I could never get my head around Other characters are also well developed and it is difficult to say who I liked the most in this story The biggest takeaway for me was. Grace Carter's mother the celebrity news anchor GG Carter is everything Grace is not GG is a star with a flawless wardrobe and a following of thousands while Grace an aspiring astrophysicist is into stars of another ind She and her mother have always been in different.
