These Broken Stars By: Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Lilac is an important person and everyone knows it, and stays far away from her in fear of her father. Tarver is just a soldier, who without knowing any better, talks to her. They are aboard the Icarus, but when it is pulled out of hyperspace they are on their own as they make their way together to an escape pod and plummet to the surface of an unknown planet. As they try to find out what to do, they see the Icarus fall from the sky, they attempt to make their way to the ship, hopeful that they will be rescued. They face many obstacles, but what they find is so unknown to them they have to figure it out together. In the end they are surprised at their will to fight, and find each other.
I loved this book. I was engrossed in the story from the first chapter. I loved how the book is from both characters perspectives and how unique the storyline is, in that what happens is not what I expected at all. Both characters have things that they are running from in their life, and they do find that they cannot assume what others are thinking and who they are. Great science fiction love story for sure.
I borrowed this from the public library
