Nanee's Release day review of The Sounds of Shooting Stars by Heather Allen

 Title: The Sound of Shooting Stars 
Author:  Heather Allen 
Genre:  Contemporary YA 
Publication Date:  11 November 2013 
Event organized by:  Into the Night Reviews


Jamie Grey grew up tossed around between foster homes. At an early age he shut the world out, deciding he wouldn’t care. Whatever life had to throw at him, he would look the other way. Now his senior year is about to start and he’s been forced into yet another new home. This will be the last time, he assures himself. When an unexpected curveball comes his way in the form of a certain stubborn seventeen year old girl, Jamie soon finds out that life doesn’t always work out the way you plan it.

Beckett Chase has been entitled her entire life. Living in the plush landscape of Palm Beach, Florida, she’s never wanted for anything. She’s always taken what and who she wants with no remorse. When she sets her sights on Jamie Grey and she’s met with rejection, her descent from the top begins.

With a twist of events causing Jamie and Beckett’s worlds to collide, will they be able to put aside their differences or will fate intervene offering an entirely different option?

Nanee's Review:

Jamie oh Jamie I love that boy, I want to hug him and love him like he's always wanted and needed someone to. I thought the story was heartwarming ( well most of it) and very sad in parts but very sweet and awe inspiring. I love Beckett's mom and dad so caring and loving, now Becket on the other hand sometimes is devious, cut throat, and a liar  but I felt bad for her and wanted to hug her too, bad things happened to her and she lashes out on everyone instead of just being herself. Beckett and Jamie didn't get along very well in the beginning but when they realized they cared for each other and more sometimes you have to let your guard down and be together. They are both very strong people . 5 stars
