About the book: Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy, is back with The Chaos of Stars—an enchanting novel set in Egypt and San Diego that captures the magic of first love and the eternally complicated truth about family.
Isadora's family is seriously screwed up—which comes with the territory when you're the human daughter of the ancient Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris. Isadora is tired of living with crazy relatives who think she's only worthy of a passing glance—so when she gets the chance to move to California with her brother, she jumps on it. But her new life comes with plenty of its own dramatic—and dangerous—complications . . . and Isadora quickly learns there's no such thing as a clean break from family.
Blending Ally Carter's humor and the romance of Cynthia Hand's Unearthly, The Chaos of Stars takes readers on an unforgettable journey halfway across the world and back, and proves there's no place like home.
My review: This book was a little confusing for me. In every chapter there are flashbacks to different time periods and different things happen, and there are many chapters scattered throughout the book of some strange dreams. I thought that both of these things broke up the story line, making it very confusing for the reader. That being said, I really liked Isadora, she was a fabulous character, she seemed like she was real in a book where most things seemed to be mythical. I liked Tyler, Scott and Ry too, what great friends for a girl to have, I loved the way that they were always looking out for Isadora. I liked the way that the parts of the book set in San Diego felt, they really had a SoCal vibe about them. I thought that the plot was good, and the way that you don't know who the bad guy is and how he's getting around is really great too. This book was pretty clean, and well written. If you like YA novels, you'll enjoy this one!
I was able to borrow this book from my local library.
