Cover Crush: Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake

Cover Crush: Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake

Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake has such a pretty cover! It has a lot going on in the depth of it. I have also made it known how much I love illustrated covers and this one is exceptional! I can’t wait to see how all the background translates in the finished product! I am expecting this book to be a heart-breaker. With barely a synopsis, but one that let’s the reader know there are emotionally triggering aspects within these pages. I am hoping it is one of those beautiful books inside and out, but I am sure I am still going to need some tissues nearby. Big thanks to HMH for sending me a review copy, and I can’t wait to report back to you all when I read it! Girl Made of Stars is set to release on May 15th, and you can add it to your TBR now!

“I need Owen to explain this. Because yes, I do know that Owen would never do that, but I also know Hannah would never lie about something like that.”

Mara and Owen are about as close as twins can get. So when Mara’s friend Hannah accuses Owen of rape, Mara doesn’t know what to think. Can the brother she loves really be guilty of such a violent crime? Torn between the family she loves and her own sense of right and wrong, Mara is feeling lost, and it doesn’t help that things have been strained with her ex-girlfriend, Charlie.

As Mara, Hannah, and Charlie navigate this new terrain, Mara must face a trauma from her own past and decide where Charlie fits in her future. With sensitivity and openness, this timely novel confronts the difficult questions surrounding consent, victim blaming, and sexual assault.
