Falling Stars: A Thompson Sisters Novella by Charles Sheehan-Miles

Crank Wilson and Julia Thompson love each other madly. But after Crank’s huge mistake during the summer, on the road with Crank’s rock band Morbid Obesity, they aren’t getting along.

Sean Wilson and Carrie Thompson are the seventeen year old younger siblings of Julia and Crank. Carrie is on her way to New York to start college at Columbia University and Sean is on his way home to Boston. For the next five days, they’re stuck in a car. Along the way, they’ll contend with screaming matches, giant spiders and a 240-pound pissed off Marine.

And the whole way, Crank will be faced with one question. After he screwed up so badly, is there any way he can win Julia back?

Did I tell you that Charles Sheehan-Miles ranks somewhere on top of my favorite authors and that I’m simply in love with him? He knows how to rock my emotions, to surprise me, to devastate me, to make me fall in love, then suddenly break my heart, he knows how to make me smile, laugh and he just knows how to make me FEEL.   
The Thompson Sisters is one of my favorite series so far, and so far, none of the series has disappointed me (yes, including THE LAST HOUR – which totally had me in tears!). Now what makes this one different? I was afraid to read this at first, because it might destroy the HEA for Crank and Julia, but then I took the plunge, read it in one sitting, and – SPEECHLESS. It took a while for me to make this review.
How can something so short be this perfect?!!
I was happy to read Crank and Julia once again. The last time I saw them, they were perfect for each other, madly in love and really, very happy. But Crank made some serious stupid mistake while on tour that puts this perfect relationship on the rocks. Julia was cold and distant, and Crank wasn’t doing anything to make things right.
It was great to see Carrie again – all young and not-heartbroken. I had this wishful thinking that perhaps Carrie would get her own happy ending (with Sean probably) as well. They seem perfect for each other, at seventeen – with genius minds that seems to blend. Carrie was on her way to New York to start college at Columbia University while Sean is on his way to Boston.
They spent five days crammed inside the car, with a short, unforgettable stop to see Barry. Would they be able to mend their broken relationship? Or will they both throw the best thing that happened to the both of them?  
Falling Stars will make you fall in love all over again with Crank and Julia, and even Carrie and Sean. It’s short, perfect, and a really, really great read. A perfect read for one sitting, enough to finish before you hit the sheets – to keep you warm in these cold nights, and give you a perfect dream in your sleep. Charles Sheehan-Miles once again worked his magic that would leave you wanting for more.

“Because you make me better. You make me-you make me feel like I matter. Like my life matters. I feel like, with you, I can do anything in the world. That we can do anything in the world. And we will.”
