Now for a review of Starcrossed:
Think Twilight on the East Coast. Girl is different, a strange family moves into town. Turns out they’re immortal and drama ensues. Okay, if you hated Twilight, don’t run away just yet. Despite the eerie similarities, Starcrossed presented a pretty good story. There aren’t vampires; instead, there are descendents of the Greek gods, and it’s not just the one family in town. I liked how mythology was a primary driver of the plot (made all that stuff I had to memorize sophomore year of high school worthwhile). Of course there is a love story (star-crossed lovers, anyone?) and the novel ends on a cliff-hanger. I will of course be reading the next one! Again, a big theme is the strength in embracing your differences- a storyline I may never tire of. And Greek gods? How can you not love them and their drama?
