Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Mara and Owen are twins; Owen is dating her friend Hannah. And then Hannah accuses Owen of rape.
Readers expect a certain something from a plot like that, and this delivers. Conflicts, questionings, different sides of the same story, people taking sides.
I was intrigued to read this and how the author handled this, and I was mostly satisfied.
But, with a book like this, you can't get away from at least a discussion of "girls lie" or "girls change their minds." And that's always a bit of a tough one for me to read, because it seems like in trying to be "fair" or "equal," well, it's not fair. But that is more me than the book. And the important thing is: this book says what it will do, delivers it, and also provides a satisfying conclusion.
