When Stars Collide by Susan Elizabeth Phillips
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Phillips puts her best foot forward when she speaks to the heart. When the Stars Collide is a conversation with the heart. Olivia and Thad are a mystery that really shouldn't work, yet they are at their best when they are being their worst. From intriguing to dramatic, Phillips sets off sparks with an uproar that deserves a standing ovation.

Philippa's parents work on a cruise ship. She helps them with their jobs. A new captain and his son are coming aboard for this trip. A Duchess and her nephews also are on this cruise. Philippa does not trust them especially as she notices how much they all watch her. She also likes mysteries. So she decides she will find out about them and about the captain's son who is a mass of contradictions.
I enjoyed this story. Philippa is very determined to solve the mystery even if it means she runs afoul of the cruise director and the captain. I wanted to slap the Duchess and her nephews. They were pains in the behind. I liked Philip but I wanted to know his story as much as Philippa did. We do find out in the end what it is.
This is a good story for 8-12 years old. The mystery is enough to keep one engaged and rooting for Philippa.
Told in verse form, it tells the story of two girls--one American, one Dominican Republican--who lose their fathers on the same day. Secrets are revealed. Some know the secrets; some only are finding out the secrets. The girls must decide what to do with the secrets.
I wasn't sure what I felt about the story until the end. I liked how it went back and forth between the girls then switched to both of their sides. It was interesting how they ended up helping each other. Until the last quarter of the book, I was not happy with the book. I don't like all these secrets being kept. When the secrets finally are acknowledged by all then I enjoyed the story. I liked the ending. It was what I hoped it would be.
