    1. ***Thanks to NetGalley for providing me a complimentary copy of SEE ALL THE STARS by Kit Frick in exchange for my honest review***Holy unputdownable, BatmanADE: A++++5+ STARSSEE ALL THE STARS is one of those books that gave me a tingle in my stomach, an excitement that only book lovers can understand. Even in the first chapter, I knew I was reading something special. Kit Frick’s gorgeous words danced off the page into my mind. And heart. I wanted to read quickly to see the source of Ellory‘s [...]

    2. Complex, captivating, and gorgeously written. Kit Frick nails this story on so many levels: suspense, swoons, and sheer page-turning goodness--not only for the mystery at hand, but for what's going to happen for these beautifully drawn characters. They leap off the page so vividly, I felt as though I knew them and I'm still thinking about them a week after finishing. A stunning debut, and I can't wait to see what this author shares with us next.

    3. Caution: This is not an actual review. I have been noticing a trend that famous authors keep their book in Netgalley's read-now section and once you noticed and overjoyed by that - publishers give you protected PDF. I hate reading PDFs, they are not great format to read. The difficulty is that I read all my books in eReader where I use Black background and white font color. It strains my eyes less and as my father is ophthalmologist, he simply agrees with the decision. There is no way to make su [...]

    4. Pre-order available now!4.5 Stars"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I . . . "Yes, I read this super early, several months in advance of its release date, but I couldn't get it off my mind once I saw the cover and read the blurb. When a book like this is sitting on your Kindle, you read it, publish date ignored. Within a handful of pages, I knew this was the sort of book that required my full attention. Kit Frick's beautiful prose pulled me into the solar system made up of Ellory, Ret, Bex, and J [...]

    5. Two roads diverged in a wood, and I . . .I chose to follow her.Ret, Ellory, Jenny and Bex. They were four friends, inseparable. Ellory was the artist, Bex, the dancer, Jenny the grounded one and Ret the center of their universe. Each girl lived to please her and be noticed by her. They sought out her approval in all things. For her part, Ret knew the power she held over them and reveled in their competition for her affection.I lied to myself.A coming-of-age story, See All the Stars is also a mys [...]

    6. I was fortunate enough to read an early version of SEE ALL THE STARS, and I absolutely loved it. There is so much poetry in Kit Frick's prose, so many gorgeous lines. This is a book that manages to be both chilling and lovely, with a nonlinear timeline that keeps you guessing. Longer review to come closer to pub date!

    7. Hello, readers! *waves*See All the Stars will be out in the world on August 14, 2018! If you're a fan of gritty, heartbreaking contemporary YA novels like Jeff Zentner's Goodbye Days and Courtney Summers' Some Girls Are and twisty suspense like E. Lockhart's We Were Liars and Stephanie Kuehn's Complicit, you're in the right place. I'm glad we found each other!See All the Stars unfolds in two timelines with chapters alternating between Ellory's junior and senior years of high school. It combines [...]

    8. Oh my God!! This book was extremely captivating from the very first chapter. The switching perspectives from 'NOW' to 'THEN' keep the mystery and intrigue alive throughout the whole novel and they keep you reading so you find out what the massive event that caused such a change in these characters' lives is. And the plot-twist at the end will leave you speechless! This book follows our main character Ellory throughout her last high school years, unveiling two timelines 'NOW' and 'THEN' until the [...]

    9. Hm… okay wow.There are some books you know you are unlikely to read again, not because they are bad but because they click something inside you and then they unlock something you buried deep –something you either fought against and won or compromised with, accepted and move on, much like its main character. They touch you deep and you are not sure if you are willing to go through that again.I am not sure I can explain what this book was about –I’m even less sure I want to- but if I had t [...]

    10. It’s not until adulthood that we can finally look back and fully understand the complexities of the core relationships from our youth. And they were complex. At the time we told each other we would be best friends FOREVER and meant it. Our first loves felt like the center of our universes, and they were. Everything was life or death at the time and we couldn’t possibly see that this period of our lives was nothing more than a stepping stone to something bigger, something real.This wonderfull [...]

You can read this review at bookwormbrittanyy.wordpress.c Disclaimer: I was sent a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*Rating: 3.5 stars* "Whoever said that time heals all wounds didn't know what he was talking about. Time dulls the wounds, makes them bearable. But it doesn't patch you up and send you on your way, good as new. I'm the only one who can make that happen. And it's freaking hard."Do you guys ever read a book and come across a line that just sticks [...]

Thank you so much Netgalley for this opportunity.This book has been described as a mix between We Were Liars and 13 Reasons Why. Unfortunately, I haven't read either one of those books, so [...]

    13. I received this novel from NetGalleyWow, I finished this book in one sitting, one sitting that had me on the edge of my seat. This book completely tore me apart. It starts out in this amazing world of love, light and friendship, and slowly as the novel progresses, it all begins to fade away into horrific, heart breaking agony.This is the second book I have read this year and it will be tough to beat, definitely going to be my favourite for 2018.I love Frick's writing style, the way she engages t [...]

    14. Thanks to Pitch Wars 2017, and landing the amazing Kit Frick as my mentor (THANK YOU KIT), I've become one of the lucky few granted permission to early-read this utterly raw and poetic masterpiece! This is a book about friendships--why we choose the friends we do, and how sometimes we have to say goodbye to people who aren't good for us. I do not want to spoil anything, but Kit broke my heart in the most beautiful way. I'm so excited for the rest of the world to be able to read this!!

    15. Thank you NetGalley for sending me an e-ARC of this awesome YA fiction novel.I think I've found a new favourite YA fiction author. Kit Frick, you're indeed the best at writing YA Fiction, and building and maintaining suspense throughout the novel. The characters in the book are so well-defined, I almost felt that Ellory, Ret, Bex, Jenni, Matthias were real life people who text me everyday.The book is written in two intermingling parts: the first part where the author describes the main character [...]

    16. This story blew me away. The two opposite timelines coming together near the mid-point of the story added just the right amount of tension to keep me reading.

    17. **I'm extremely grateful to McElderry and Netgalley for sending me this ARC. This has in no way affected my opinion of this book.**Books about high school friendships and fallouts are common, and yet somehow there is an element to them that eludes most writers: the bad times aren’t constantly bad. See All the Stars by Kit Frick perfectly captures the see-saw-like, constantly changing nature of friendships. More to come later

    18. I was really disappointed by this book, especially since I seem to be in the minority with that opinion. Most of the reviews I've seen on and NetGalley are glowing and 5-stars, but for me, it was just angst-heavy, unrealistic, and uninspiring. I struggled to find a single likable character to connect with. I was particularly frustrated with Ellory's dependency on Ret and I got a serious "mean girls" vibe from their clique. I understand this is a coming-of-age story and realizing she needs t [...]

    19. First, I want to give a big thank you to Netgalley for providing me an early copy of this book.This book was honestly amazing! Kit Frick really has a way with words. Her writing style is so captivating and beautiful. I was not expecting to love this book as much as I did and I will hands down be buying my own finished copy when it i released!See All the Stars is about a girl named Ellory, who one day goes to a party with her best friend Rett. Here Ellory meets a boy and this is where the whole b [...]

    20. I received a free copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I really enjoyed this book for the most part. I thought the suspense was built extremely well, and it had a We Were Liars kind of vibe to it for me. Since that is a book I loved, I really enjoyed this one as well - I didn't see the plot twist coming at all, which is something I love in mysteries, and I was really invested in the story.However, I take off one star in my rating because I had a problem with [...]

    21. ’Two roads diverged in a wood, and I’ A coming of age novel about a group of friends that are torn apart by lies, secrets and betrayals.This story follows 2 timelines. It bounces between the main character, Ellorys’, junior and senior year in high school.It opens with an ‘incident’ that happened to Ellory that you do not find out about until the very ending of the book. This ‘incident’ was the only reason I kept reading, I was waiting for it to reveal itself.I felt the story was ve [...]

    22. I knew this was special right away, commenting on how I loved the voice as early as the first few pages. But HOLY COW did I not know how much I would ultimately love this book. See All the Stars does something I LOVE which is that it makes me care a ton, even though I don't love the characters. For the most part.Ellory, our narrator, is so special. I adore her in both the Junior and Senior year timelines. Ellory feels real. Flawed in all the right ways and so, wholly teenagerific. Nothing bother [...]

    23. "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-"It's not very often a book stays with you long after you've closed the last page - or in my case - clicked the last page. This is one of those books, and I was lucky enough to get it early.Where do I even begin? I'm shocked. Sad.Heartbroken. Grieving.Crushed.I really should start writing sense Okay. So you have Ellory. Kind, easily influenced Ellory. Then you have her friends Ret, Bex and Jenni. I loved how the book jumped from what happened before and what [...]

    24. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.See All the Stars is described as a thrilling novel that is cross between We Were Liars and 13 Reasons Why. I would describe it as a mystery and love story combined in to one dramatic novel told through the eyes of Ellory, a senior at Pine Brook High School. Ellory is just one of four girls in a friendship group that revolves around one: Ret. Ret is the sun in Ellory’s solar system of life. With [...]

    25. I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This book was about two girls who used to be besties. Now, they aren't besties anymore and you get to read 300 plus pages just to find out why they aren't friends anymore.Yep, that's all this book is. I'm not kidding.Really though, these girls (Ellory and Ret) weren't really besties. Ret lead, Ellory followed. Because they needed each other. Why? Just because. What other reason do you need?The book just went o [...]

    26. Actual rating: 4.5/5 stars.Many thanks to Edelweiss Plus and McElderry Books for the eARC of this copy for review. All opinions are my own.To start off-I would have totally given this a 5 star review, but I was able to figure out where it was going about 1/2 way though the book. It was not as big of a "AHA!" shock moment for me to figure out what had happened, so that is the ONLY reason I knocked down the rating. I still loved the story. I loved the characters. I loved how the storyline came tog [...]

    27. I received this book on Netgalley; opinions shared are mine. See All the Stars reminded me how glad I am to be done with high school. It's not that high school was a bad experience (it wasn't) but everything just seemed like such a big deal back then. Friends, boyfriends, school, the future.high school had a way of making it all seem so all-or-nothing. In the same way, See All the Stars put me in Ellory's shoes for a little while, remembering the emotional highs and lows of those pre-adult days. [...]

    28. Wow. Wow, wow, wow. This book. I can't say truthfully that I read it in one sitting, but I can tell you that I got as close to it as I could. I absorbed this book. I couldn't wait to get off work so I could go home and read more. I stayed up way too late to read the last 100 pages, and I regret nothing. It started with four - Ellory, Ret, Jenni, and Bex. Unseparable forces of nature. Add in a beautiful, soulful, hardworking boyfriend, and Ellory feels like nothing in life could be better. Her wo [...]

    29. *Thank you to Net Galley for my copy of See All The Stars.*See the Stars is a story that captured my attention from the very first page to the last. I easily give this book a 5 star rating (and would give even more if I could!) It is a truly beautiful and complex story that will stick with me for much time to come. When I finished reading, I had to take a few moments just to digest the words. First, the writing in this book is so poetic and elegant that it made me hang on to every word. This boo [...]

    30. I finished this book last night, but I couldn't write a review then, as I was too emotional. I literally finished the book, sat quietly in shock for a minute and then the tears started streaming and just wouldn't stop. When a book can emotionally captivate you like that, you know it's an amazing one. There was no chance I could even contemplate giving this book anything less than five stars. I read this book in three sittings; the last sitting I read over 200 pages. I honestly just couldn't stop [...]
