Release Date: April 16, 2019

Publisher: Candlewick Press

 

About the Book:

In a novel in two voices, a popular teen and an artistic loner forge an unlikely bond — and create an entire universe — via texts. But how long before the real world invades Starworld?

Sam Jones and Zoe Miller have one thing in common: they both want an escape from reality. Loner Sam flies under the radar at school and walks on eggshells at home to manage her mom’s obsessive-compulsive disorder, wondering how she can ever leave to pursue her dream of studying aerospace engineering. Popular, people-pleasing Zoe puts up walls so no one can see her true self: the girl who was abandoned as an infant, whose adoptive mother has cancer, and whose disabled brother is being sent away to live in a facility. When an unexpected encounter results in the girls’ exchanging phone numbers, they forge a connection through text messages that expands into a private universe they call Starworld. In Starworld, they find hilarious adventures, kindness and understanding, and the magic of being seen for who they really are. But when Sam’s feelings for Zoe turn into something more, will the universe they’ve built survive the inevitable explosion?

I love the colors and the symmetry of the cover and the synopsis is AWESOME.

The girls may create their own escape in STARWORLD, but it is the multitude of issues they face in their real lives that makes me desperately want to #readandreview this book.

Disability of a sibling, a parent with cancer and another trying to cope with OCD and the feelings that you cannot leave to fulfill your own dreams because you are needed at home, all these things would be difficult enough to try to grapple with, but add in the fact that you are also trying to come to terms with your own sexuality, and this novel becomes one that everyone should want to read.

I seriously cannot wait to get my hands on a copy of this book.

Wow! The stunning cover drew me in but after reading the synopsis I am. Here. For. Starworld! I need it NOW! This sounds truly amazing! I love all the diversity and rep in this book especially a relationship, possibly a relationship between two girls! This is something we need more of! And disability rep with the sibling with a disability. Also- mental health with a parent with OCD. And a sick adoptive parent. So much realness that this book is serving! These are the kinds of books young people need today! We ALL need these books! I'd love to share this with my daughter.
