Lost Stars by Lisa Selin Davis #BookPromo

 
 
Before her older sister, Ginny, died, Carrie was a science nerd, obsessively tracking her beloved Vira comet. But now that Ginny is gone, sixteen-year-old Carrie finds herself within the orbit of Ginny’s friends, a close-knit group of seniors who skip school, obsess over bands (not science), and party hard. 

Fed up with Carrie’s behavior, her father enrolls her in a summer work camp at a local state park. Carrie actually likes the days spent in nature. And when she meets Dean, a guy who likes the real Carrie—astrophysics obsessions and all—she starts to get to the heart of who she is and who she wants to be.





This title will be released on October 4, 2016.
Lisa Selin Davis is the author of the novel BELLY. Lisa is originally from Saratoga Springs, N.Y., where she spent summers playing and listening to music with her (older) friends and riding her bike. She has written articles for The New York TimesThe Wall Street JournalTime magazine and many other publications. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, two kids, and a very old cat.
 




"Like the slow rising of the sun after a long, stormy night, Carrie comes out of the darkness and embraces life in this moving real-life problem novel. . . . Fans of Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park and Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower will dig this book."
—School Library Journal

Lost Stars is a novel for anyone who’s ever grappled with their own place in the universe .“

“Davis makes the 1980s shine...”
—Kirkus

“Carrie may indeed be "lost,” but every reader will find themselves in her as she stumbles through this sharp, aching, and finely-observed coming of age story. Just like a real star, this book is a luminous creation held together by its own gravity.”
—Una LaMarche, author of Unabrow: Misadventures of a Late Bloomer
 
“The story of Caraway, a lost girl, unforgettable and unapologetic, who grapples with grief and guilt and anger to find love—and herself. Set to the wistful backdrop of the stars and the blasting beat of the '80s, this novel is a triumph.”
–Kate Hattemer, author of The Vigilante Poets of Selwyn Academy
 
“Lost Stars the rare novel that successfully captures the complexities of family, friendship, and love in equal measure. Davis's novel is a beautifully written reminder that what has the power to wound us terribly can also heal us.”
—Cristina Moracho, author of Althea & Oliver
