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.

4.5 Where the Stars Still Shine
This was a smooth, easy read with characters that I felt I could relate to. As Callie’s life changed before my eyes, it was like a door opening up for her. This door of opportunity had everything Callie hoped and dreamed for but in the back of Callie’s mind, she was waiting for a trap door to open...

A copy of this novel was provided by Bloomsbury Australia in exchange an honest review. Trish Doller is fast becoming my go-to author when I am in need of a heartbreakingly fantastic contemporary young adult novel. When I read her first novel, Something Like Normal, it inspired a new love and appr...
