Review of Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini

Summary off of Goodreads:

How do you defy destiny?

Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—no easy task on an island as small and sheltered as Nantucket. And it's getting harder. Nightmares of a desperate desert journey have Helen waking parched, only to find her sheets damaged by dirt and dust. At school she's haunted by hallucinations of three women weeping tears of blood . . . and when Helen first crosses paths with Lucas Delos, she has no way of knowing they're destined to play the leading roles in a tragedy the Fates insist on repeating throughout history.

As Helen unlocks the secrets of her ancestry, she realizes that some myths are more than just legend. But even demigod powers might not be enough to defy the forces that are both drawing her and Lucas together—and trying to tear them apart.

My Review: ( sorry it's not supper detailed I don't want to ruin the book yet by revealing too much ) :) 

Josephine Angelini did an amazing job with Starcrossed. Her twist on the Trojan war was enticing and just plain amazing. I completely fell in love with Lucas and Hector, well what is a YA book with an amazing male lead? And Claire is just an amazing friend to Helen. The Starcrossed love between Lucas and Helen was so sweet, and so tormenting. This book completely shocked me at parts (in a good way) and I highly recommend everyone to read it, doesn't matter if you are male or female. I give props to Angelini for writing such a splendid novel, and it was an amazing Debut Novel. She has a great future ahead of her as an author :D I can't wait for the next book !

I got this book as an ARC but it is already in stores...so i highly recommend you buy this book...you won't be sorry ! 

~Happy Reading
