About the Book: Then: They were four—Bex, Jenni, Ellory, Ret. (Venus. Earth. Moon. Sun.) Electric, headstrong young women; Ellory’s whole solar system. Now: Ellory is alone, her once inseparable group of friends torn apart by secrets, deception, and a shocking incident that changed their lives forever. Then: Lazy summer days. A party. A beautiful boy. Ellory met Matthias and fell into the beginning of a spectacular, bright love. Now: Ellory returns to Pine Brook to navigate senior year after a two-month suspension and summer away—no boyfriend, no friends. No going back. Tormented by some and sought out by others, troubled by a mysterious note-writer who won’t let Ellory forget, and consumed by guilt over her not entirely innocent role in everything and everyone she’s lost, Ellory finds that even in the present, the past is everywhere. The path forward isn’t a straight line. And moving on will mean sorting the truth from the lies—the lies Ellory has been telling herself.
You are the sun, and I am the moon.
Though intended for the young adult reader See All the Stars will be enjoyed by readers of all ages. In this novel Kit Frick exhibits a unique ability to write about extremely difficult issues with a captivating prose.
For a second, it was like he saw me as a vase teetering on the edge of a shelf, and if he reached out fast enough, he could still keep me from falling.
Her characters felt so real, like a story I could have lived through in high school in so many ways. The emotions. The feelings. The actions. All perfectly executed in the story line. Told from a first person perspective and using then and now chapters, Ellory's experiences are heartfelt and authentic.
Every part of you is mine. Even the parts that are his.
This book captivated me in a way like no other. If you are a teen or young adult who has experienced challenges, Ellory's story is for you. Kit Frick's writing is easy to read, she has a story telling skill that draws you into the world of her characters.
