158266481. Where the stars still shine by Trish Doller

Stolen as a child from her large and loving family, and on the run with her mom for more than ten years, Callie has only the barest idea of what normal life might be like. She’s never had a home, never gone to school, and has gotten most of her meals from laundromat vending machines. Her dreams are haunted by memories she’d like to forget completely. But when Callie’s mom is finally arrested for kidnapping her, and Callie’s real dad whisks her back to what would have been her life, in a small town in Florida, Callie must find a way to leave the past behind. She must learn to be part of a family. And she must believe that love–even with someone who seems an improbable choice–is more than just a possibility.

Trish Doller writes incredibly real teens, and this searing story of love, betrayal, and how not to lose your mind will resonate with readers who want their stories gritty and utterly true.

 2. The beginning of everything by Robyn Schneider13522285

Golden boy Ezra Faulkner believes everyone has a tragedy waiting for them—a single encounter after which everything that really matters will happen. His particular tragedy waited until he was primed to lose it all: in one spectacular night, a reckless driver shatters Ezra’s knee, his athletic career, and his social life.

No longer a front-runner for Homecoming King, Ezra finds himself at the table of misfits, where he encounters new girl Cassidy Thorpe. Cassidy is unlike anyone Ezra’s ever met, achingly effortless, fiercely intelligent, and determined to bring Ezra along on her endless adventures.

But as Ezra dives into his new studies, new friendships, and new love, he learns that some people, like books, are easy to misread. And now he must consider: if one’s singular tragedy has already hit and everything after it has mattered quite a bit, what happens when more misfortune strikes?

Robyn Schneider’s The Beginning of Everything is a lyrical, witty, and heart-wrenching novel about how difficult it is to play the part that people expect, and how new beginnings can stem from abrupt and tragic endings.

43744003. If I stay by Gayle Forman

In a single moment, everything changes. Seventeen-year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall riding along the snow-wet Oregon road with her family. Then, in a blink, she finds herself watching as her own damaged body is taken from the wreck…

A sophisticated, layered, and heart-achingly beautiful story about the power of family and friends, the choices we all make, and the ultimate choice Mia commands.

  1. You know, I have seen Where the stars still shine by Trish Doller around every where, but for some reason, I just pushed it aside and never read the description. So I finally read it today on your blog. And I must say its sounds amazing! Heart wrenching and painfully emotional, but amazing! 🙂 So I vote for Where the stars still shine by Trish Doller! HAPPY READING! And thanks for voting on Addicted Readers today! 🙂

  2. I don’t think you made your poll any easier than mine…lol! I haven’t read any of them, but have heard amazing things about all 3. I’m voting for If I Stay ONLY because it’s being made into a movie and therefore needs to be read. 😉

  3. I love If I Stay soooo much, it’s a really easy read, but emotional and I love all the characters. Plus Adam…there are no words. If you read it, be sure to read Where She Went after because it’s just as good, if not better. The emotion Forman creates is amaaazing!
    I’ve just read Where the Stars Still Shine and enjoyed it, but wasn’t majorly impressed after all the hype surrounding it.
