Book Review | Steering the Stars by Autumn Doughton & Erica Cope


23859347



Two girls. Two stories. One journey.

Be careful what you wish for…
Aspiring writer Hannah Vaughn worries that she is doomed to live out the rest of her existence in a sleepy Oklahoma town. For as long as she can remember, she’s dreamed of something more – adventure, excitement, intrigue. When her sister invites her to London and she’s accepted to a prestigious writing program at The Warriner School, she jumps at the chance. But will it be epic or an epic fail?

You’ll never know if you don’t try…
Nothing ever happens to straight-A student Caroline McKain and that’s exactly the way she likes it. With her best friend in London and junior year looming on the horizon, all she wants is to remain invisible. So when she is suddenly thrust into the spotlight, she must ask herself: Can an invisible girl really take center stage?

Follow Hannah and Caroline as they navigate the complexities of first love, family and growing up. As their bond is tested, the girls will learn that being apart can ultimately bring you together. Steering the Stars is a fresh, heartfelt story about fate, discovery, and the magic of friendship.

SHORT REVIEW:
Clean, touching, heartwarming and beautiful story of the journey of two young beautiful girls. It’s a story of growing up, beating the odds and their fears, love and most of all friendship.

LONGER:
Writing and winning a scholarship to London has been Hannah’s dream, and more. She had dreamed of adventure and excitement. When she finally got her chance, she immediately grabbed it. But being accepted into a prestigious writing program at The Warriner School was more than what she wished for. Without Caroline, her best friend and the comforts of the familiar, will she be able to make it?

Caroline’s life had been predictable. She’s a great student who happens to love her invisibility cloak. But when her best friend was suddenly out of Oklahoma and she was about to begin her junior year alone. Not to mention, her life was going down the drain on the first day of school when a sudden schedule change was done. The invisible girl is about to go on center change. Yikes. Can she possibly do it?

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, or this time, makes the friendship grow stronger. But with miles and oceans apart, and with a lot of things being stuffed on their plate individually: family, love, school, distance and of course, growing up – will their friendship be able to survive it?


It didn’t need one heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, steamy or overflowing romance for this book to be great. Good stories make you feel. They make you think. They wake your emotions even in the wee hours of the morning. You would not want to put it down. Steering The Stars had been that. I started it and finished it in one sitting. At 3 am, I was teary-eyed, my heart warmed with emotions, and I was feeling happy for both girls who simply deserve their happy ending. Two lovely, amazing stories wrapped in a beautiful package. You would not want to miss this.
