Starworld Cover

Do you ever find your self wanting to escape into a different world? Well, that is exactly what happens in this book. High school students Sam and Zoe have existed on two very different platforms, but find themselves more similar than they thought. It all starts with an unexpected encounter that leads the two girls to swap phone numbers, and in their text messages they build up the wonderful Starworld. In Starworld both girls feel free and they share things they never shared with other people. But will this amazing world last? Will feelings get in way of this unexpected friendship?

I really related to the characters, and the two points of view from Sam and Zoe were amazing. The text messages written between the two girls was also a unique touch that I liked reading. Overall this book really tugged on my emotions and made me think about friendships. There are not a lot of books out there that have queer protagonists. I really appreciate seeing characters that are different in YA novels. This book was definitely one of my favorite books this month and I am giving it to my friend to read next!
