BENEATH WANDERING STARS
After her soldier brother is horribly wounded in Afghanistan, Gabriela must honor the vow she made: If anything ever happened to him, she would walk the Camino de Santiago through Spain, making a pilgrimage in his name. The worst part is that the promise stipulates that she must travel with her brother's best friend--a boy she has despised all her life. Her brother is in a coma, and Gabi feels that she has no time to waste, but she is unsure. Will she hesitate too long, or risk her own happiness to keep a promise? An up-close look at the lives of the children of military families, Beneath Wandering Stars takes readers on a journey of love, danger, laughter, and friendship, against all odds.

The cover is lovely and eye catching but I'm more excited about the story. With so many people knowing someone or related to someone who was deployed in Iraq or Afghanistan lately, I wish there were more even books like this for those readers to relate to. As it is there are not enough.
This seems like a unique story -- it's not a typical trope, but I don't think the soldier brother element is a gimmick to differentiate the plot. It sounds like a bona fide human tale. I'm in! Thanks, Kara S
This story... I think it'll break me then patch me up in the most beautiful way. The cover is stunning just like a starry night sky (in light blue!).
This cover is SO pretty! I love blue, and I love stars, so this works for me on many levels! And the story sounds amazing too, and so, so emotional, and definitely makes me think that the cover is the perfect fit!
