All of Sylvie's stars are aligned, just the way she likes them. She has carefully mapped out her future, right down to her Yale scholarship and plans to become an astronomer, just like her late mother.
Is it any wonder she refuses to listen when her best friend, Cherise, tells her there's love in her near future? Love is too distracting, and Sylvie doesn't want any part of it. But, when handsome and seemingly perfect Adam enters the picture, Sylvie suddenly finds herself wanting to give astrology and Cherise's predictions a chance.
This romantic comedy from the Simon Pulse line of Simon & Schuster stars a unique main character. The obsessive and utterly straight-laced Sylvie is an unlikely candidate for impulsive love. That's what makes her such a fun heroine. Her suddenly out of order life will keep readers intrigued, as they make predictions of their own about Sylvie's destiny.
Authors Stacia Deutsch and Rhody Cohon have (rightfully) received much praise for their BLAST TO THE PAST middle-grade series, and I'm thrilled to see they've now successfully ventured into the young adult book world, as well. I'd love to see more from this duo!
