Title: Steering The Stars

Author: Autumn Doughton And Erica Cope

Summary via Goodreads:

Two girls. Two stories. One journey.

Be careful what you wish for…
Aspiring writer Hannah Vaughn worries that she is doomed to live out the rest of her existence in a sleepy Oklahoma town. For as long as she can remember, she’s dreamed of something more – adventure, excitement, intrigue. When her sister invites her to London and she’s accepted to a prestigious writing program at The Warriner School, she jumps at the chance. But will it be epic or an epic fail?

You’ll never know if you don’t try…
Nothing ever happens to straight-A student Caroline McKain and that’s exactly the way she likes it. With her best friend in London and junior year looming on the horizon, all she wants is to remain invisible. So when she is suddenly thrust into the spotlight, she must ask herself: Can an invisible girl really take center stage?

Follow Hannah and Caroline as they navigate the complexities of first love, family and growing up. As their bond is tested, the girls will learn that being apart can ultimately bring you together. Steering the Stars is a fresh, heartfelt story about fate, discovery, and the magic of friendship.


Beginning:

It was raining.

This shouldn’t have been a surprise because the first thing I’d read about England when I started doing my online research was that it rained, like, all of the time.

56%:

I reread Caroline’s email with a sick feeling swishing around in my gut. I set my barely-touched sandwich on the plate and flopped onto my back.

“Crap,” I muttered to the ceiling.

I had been able to confide in Tillie about my feelings for Joel, so why couldn’t I tell my best friend.

Thoughts:

This is a story of two best friends. One in Oklahoma and the other in London. I’m in love with the cover and I was intrigued by the summary. This book just came out a few days ago, so there’s not too many review or ratings yet, but I have a good feeling about this book. I’ll be starting it in a few days and hopefully the story is a s good as the cover.


What’s on your reading schedule for this weekend? 

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice weekend.
