We rated this book:


Sam Jones and Zoe Miller are practically antithetical. Sam is a loner at school and with having to help manage his mother’s OCD (obsessive-compulsive-disorder), making friends isn’t easy for her. Zoe Miller might seem to be a social butterfly, but with having been abandoned as an infant, her adoptive mom’s cancer, and her disabled brother whos being sent away to live in a facility, her life isn’t always as easy as it seems to be. However, the girls end up exchanging numbers. They begin talking and formulate Starworld, their escape from reality. Whenever the girls are worried, angry, or fearful they turn to Starworld. The girls tell each other everything, about themselves, at home life, and plenty of other things. Besides that, Sam has a crush on Zoe which creates a disastrous situation for their friendship and Starworld. Sam’s attempt to make a move, blows up Starworld and their friendship. Luckily, they can amend their friendship after a long time and can go on with their dreams, Sam’s being aerospace engineering and Zoe’s being theater.

The authors make the characters so real, and you just want to keep reading. They constantly kept you interested with plot changes and new situations. This book is a point of view book, and the authors made it very clear of the point of view changes, which I admire. The swearing was a little unnecessary at times but did give Sam more character which was nice.
