Between the Stars and Sky by David James (review)


NOW AVAILABLE
BETWEEN THE STARS AND SKY is a vivid contemporary novel from Young Adult author David James.  Lyrical and romantic, BETWEEN THE STARS AND SKY is a heart-stopping, contemporary read for fans of Maggie Stiefvater and David Levithan. 


SYNOPSIS: "In the small, lakeside town of Huntington, the Firelight Festival marks the end of summer. A time to laugh, to live, to love. And for Jackson Grant, it is a chance to begin again. 

 But there is a darker side to the Firelight Festival, a deadly tradition known as the Firelight Fall. A secret game. A legendary lie. A test of bravery. Those who fall risk everything, and Jackson is on the edge. Until he meets a girl who pushes him over. 


 For Jackson, falling for Sarah Blake might be as dangerous as jumping in the Firelight Fall. As summer burns away, Jackson and Sarah ignite an unstoppable love game. For her, his heart is on fire. And soon, Sarah shows him life, saves him from loss, and opens his heart to an infinite and wild love found between the stars and sky."




Review

Between The Stars and Sky by David James is a story of learning to love and letting go. I found myself getting lost in the emotional journey presented and once finished, I felt empty and lost in the best possible way. The lyrical depth bursting from the pages melted reality away for a short time, creating the perfect afternoon escape.
Within the story lies mini stories, humor, learning, and Christmas lights. Christmas lights? Yep. Read it, you’ll get it. The stories told by Jackson Grant are one of my favorite elements in this story. But my absolute favorite, the ending. So, on that note, my review must end.
I encourage you, get this book. You won't be disappointed. It's a quick read, but it's one that sticks with you.

Overcoming a fear

I have a fear.

Okay, that's a lie. I have a bunch of fears, some are silly, unrealistic, and some are truly scary. This one fear I have is fairly common across the....nation? Globe? Universe? I'm not sure, but I legit fear speaking in front of camera, strangers, one person, fifty. That whole public speaking thing, it's not for me. I've accepted that fate years ago when I received poor marks on all reports you had to share in front of the class.

The fear is real people. I clam up, feel sick, anxiety attacks left and right....it's a nightmare.

In July, after A Message of Flowers was featured in my local newspaper, I was asked to do an interview with Amy Kehm, host of Good Day PA. If you have not heard of it, it's a program through abc27, Harrisburg Pennsylvania news station. Amy informed me that it would be a LIVE in studio interview.

I was shocked, scared, excited, and nervous. So what do I do? What do I say? Absolutely nothing. I sat on this news and didn't tell a soul for roughly two weeks. Then I discussed the pros and cons with my husband. He encouraged me to go through with the interview, telling me that I'd be just fine and he would make sure to be there with me for support. I, of course, argued that I'd make animal noises instead of actual words. He laughed and told me I was being ridiculous.

This continued for about a week.

At that point, I finally emailed Amy back. I agreed to do the show, and after the date was set, then I had to work on my questions.

I practiced, and practiced, and practiced. Then I, you guessed it, practiced some more. I called two of my step kid's mom and asked her for help with an answer, because for the life of me, I could not find words to answer a SIMPLE question about my own book. Because, I was terrifiednervouspanickedsickafraid everything! LOL. Then, I called my sister and went over my answers. I took a teensy video of myself on my phone every day for weeks. Then I practiced the questions while recording myself....I was still scaredanxiouschickensick in denial over the whole thing.

I'll admit, I probably worried some friends and family members with my "vague-booking" because I was so not ready to announce it to the world....ermm, my world. I told a few select people and that was about it.

A few days before the interview, I was contacted about a scheduling error and asked to either move the interview or pretape it. I chose to pretape because I felt I needed to do this or I'd never do it. I was already counting all the ways I could get out of doing it at that point.

Finally the morning of the interview, I announced it on my personal page. I felt almost relieved after I told my friends and family. Not because of what they said, but because I finally let them in. That's something I have a problem with I'm emotional about something. No matter the topic, I hold most of it in and only share with certain people.

(my selfie in the lobby)

I am so grateful to my husband for encouraging me to do this interview. It was enlightening in a sense. I know I can count on myself.
My support system built of family and friends, that day I was grateful to have everyone I have.

(my husband's bird's eye view of the interview)

I was so scared. It was like someone asked me to sit in a tank filled with spiders. I was jittery, jumpy, nauseous, scared, and I could hardly breathe. Amy asked when I was ready, and I finally said I was, even though I felt like bursting out in tears and running away. I agreed.

 (Photo Credit: Staff at Good Day PA/abc27)

By the end of the interview, I was so close to my normal it wasn't funny. Did I remember what I answered? Nope. Not a word of it. But what I remember is how amazing and caring the staff is. Amy and her team that was there, were so nice to this scared chicken author. If I was thinking, I probably would've hugged them. I was and am so grateful they were such positive and supportive people. I will be going back and doing another interview.

You can find the interview HERE

You can tell how nervous I was in the video, and if you've read my books, you might catch my blunder. (Also, I'm aware there's a typo on their part. They listed Plucked as my upcoming novel, it's actually Pucked) I still find the interview surreal, I can't believe I did it.

Anyway, I just wanted to share this experience all with you. Hopefully, you'll do what scares you too.

"That thing that scares you the most, that makes you say, 'I don't know if I can do it, I'm scared.' Run towards it because it's so amazing on the other side." - Sherri Shepherd

I'm still a chicken, but I know I can do anything I put my mind to.

Excerpt
A few blocks down by campus, there’s a Starbucks. I practically live here during finals week, and I pull Jill inside so we can grab a Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino. We get comfy on the couch by the window so we can people watch. It’s one of my favorite games, and Jill cracks up when I peg their drinks by their looks. It’s a little judgmental, but it’s all in good spirit. I mean it’s not like I say he’s getting a Chai Latte because he’s gay, or that she’s getting a Skinny Non-fat Vanilla Frappuccino with no whip cream because she’s fat. It’s more like I can see the person behind their clothes and accessories. It’s a gift my art professors raved about throughout school.

“What is tall, dark, and brooding getting, Ames?” Jill’s voice holds a challenge.

I examine the guy. He’s definitely tall, probably around 6’2’’ with black hair. The skin I can see is tanned, and he’s wearing some dark washed blue jeans with a light blue button up. Preppy but not overly so. I would peg him as either a business or architect major, and I start going through a list of possible drinks in my head.

“You better hurry, Ames. He’s getting ready to order.” She laughs at the length it’s taken me to decide on a drink for him.

“He’s going to get a Venti Café Americano with a double shot, no cream,” I say as he approaches the counter.

Pulling out my phone, I see that I have a few missed calls from my dad, and I make a mental note to call him back. I open up the browser to search for places to take Jill out tonight. It needs to be out of the way of campus so we don’t run into the jerk and his new girl, but close enough if we have to walk home.
“Can I get a Venti Café Americano with a double shot,” a smooth, deep voice echoes around the shop.
I look up to see every girl looking toward the back of the store where the guy just ordered what I predicted. Something about his voice draws my attention to his back, like I want to examine him further.

“Told you, Jill,” I say through a smile as I look over at her and away from him.

“You sure you’re not psychic?” She locks eyes with me and then they flicker away to only widen.

“What? Don’t tell me Stephen is here with that girl, Jill. I will personally take him out of the store and beat him senseless.” I get ready to turn around when a chuckle has me frozen in my chair.

“Do you ladies mind if I join you?” It’s the voice from the guy who just ordered.

Jill shakes her head no and gestures with her hand for him to take a seat. I stare daggers at her, but she just shrugs at me. Resting back into my chair, I continue the search for the right club, but can’t come up with anything that would guarantee a Stephen-free night.

“Marcus!” the barrista calls.

I look up to see the guy next to us eye me as he rises to fetch his coffee. Turning my attention to Jill, I see her study his ass and grin. She obviously likes what she sees.

“No creamer right?” I lean over and whisper at her.

“None. He’s coming back this way though.” Smiling at me, her eyes shimmer.

“What, why?” I let out.

“Why what?” Marcus asks as he sits down in the chair opposite me.

“Nothing.” I reply like I’m annoyed at his intrusion. He just shrugs it off like it’s not a big deal, and I decide to ignore him.

“So, I think we’re going to need to get ourselves a DD so we can go out tonight, Jill.” I smile at her.

“Come on, Ames. I don’t want to run into him,” she pleads with me.

“I know. I’ve been looking at clubs further out, which is why we would need a sober driver to accompany us.”

“I don’t mean to include myself in this conversation, but why don’t you just go to the new club that opens tonight. Déjà vu is on the corner of Main and Avenue X, so it’s close to the campus,” Marcus offers with a smile.

“No offense, but if it’s new, it’s a sure thing that her ex,” I point at Jill, “will be there, and the point of the night is to have fun.”

“Well, I have it on good authority to say that the only people getting into the club are ones with their names on the list.”

His smirk graces his face and it pulls my attention to examine him. Gorgeous set of lips that I could get lost in kissing, a nose that’s slightly crooked from being broken, and when my eyes make their way to his, a blue that’s not entirely blue. They have specks of green and yellow floating around and glinting off the light in the coffee shop. My train of thought goes fuzzy for a second, and I look away from him by grabbing my drink off the table while I try and process why all of a sudden I feel the need to wrap my body around his.

“Right, so a VIP list that our names wouldn’t be on either. How does that help?” The words fly out of my mouth. I tend to speak fast when I’m nervous.

“I can get you on the list,” Marcus says in a way that makes me rethink wrapping my body around his.

REVIEWS    

  Human trafficking isn't something you read a lot about and T.K. Leigh wrote about in a way that sticks you right in the middle of what it could be like from many angles. From the victim, and the people who love them, to the creeps behind it all..l This book reminded me that no matter what your "dark" is always look for the "light" and you will find it. - Kim,Sinful Thoughts Book Blog 

  Have you ever read a book and thought "There is no way the author will ever be able to top that?" Well, that is how I felt after I finished the Beautiful Mess Series by T.K. Leigh. Boy, was I wrong... I am calling it now... Heart of Light...BEST READ OF 2014!! Heart of Light is a firestorm of emotion... There was never an emotion that wasn't perfectly presented through T.K.'s words. She is a master at her craft and you can tell that she pours not only her heart and soul into every single sentence but these characters, these thoughts are her priceless gift that she so generously shares with her fans. - Melissa, The Truth About Fiction Book Blog 

  This book...will play at every emotion possible to feel. But it will be worth every minute you spend reading it. It is a lesson to us as well that the underlying problem this book revolves around is truly out there and in our own neighborhoods, back yards, cities and towns.Please, I urge you, as a reader to take the time and read this book. It has definitely touched me in a way I wasn't expecting. And just knowing that this problem is out there, definitely will have you being more attentive to what is around you. - Tonya, Turn The Page Book Blog

The Love Series by Melissa Collins

Let Love Live by Melissa Collins 
Although this is part of a series, it can be read as a STANDALONE.




Who would you become if you lost the only person who ever mattered?

For twenty-six year old Dylan Hopkins, the answer is easy. He’s become no one. Memories of the happier times are all he has left as he finds himself meandering numbly through his now dull life. Though he cares about his work and family dearly, he’s yet to let himself find love again. Afraid of letting go of what he once had, Dylan chooses to keep his heart buried, where it belongs, having died a long time ago. 

Conner Michelson is about to change everything Dylan knows. He’s every bit the bad boy persona - tatted up, ex-MMA fighter, but after an injury leaves him unable to fight, he has to rethink his goals. Having just opened his own gym, Conner can cross his first major life accomplishment off his very short list. Next up: find a man he can settle down with and build a family. Seems simple enough - a dream most people have, but when he meets Dylan, his carefree, easy-going life is thrown into a tailspin. 

Determined to keep Dylan in his life, Conner vows to resurrect Dylan's long ago buried heart and let love live once more.

Let Love In (The Love Series #1) 


What would happen if you lost everything? If the people who were supposed to love you unconditionally were no longer there for you, how would your world change?
That’s exactly what happened to Madeleine Becker when her parents died when she was ten years old. Ripped from her home and everything that she has ever loved, she is forced to start all over again. The only way for her to move on is to build walls around her heart and keep everyone at a safe distance. Her logic: she can't get hurt if she doesn't fall in love.

That theory is blown to pieces when she meets Reid Connely during her freshman year at college. He is gorgeous and darkly mysterious. He understands Maddy's pain all too well, but sharing his pain would mean breaking down the walls he put up around his own heart. Conflicted between loving Maddy and hiding his dark past, Reid starts to reevaluate his world. Maddy's inner strength, snarky personality and breath taking beauty help Reid to make peace with his past.

Together they find out what happens when they Let Love In.

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream. 

Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.



Fear Me Not by Sara Wolf




The aliens crash-landed on Earth eleven years ago. And now, sixteen-year-old Victoria Hale feeds them. With her emotions.

Victoria is an EVE - an Emotion Vesicle Engraft - and one of few humans who are genetically capable of producing emotions for the Gutters to feed on. She's doing it for the money - her sister Alisa needs a good doctor, and fast. But what she didn't count on was being sent to the world's first desegregated high school for Gutters and humans. She didn't count on the paparazzi, the protestors, or the insane Gutter politics and government secrets. She didn't count on the crimson-eyed Gutter prince with an intriguing heart of cold iron, either.

She especially didn't count on murder.

But it's counting on her.



“I’m sorry,” Shadus’ voice says.

My eyes slide over – Shadus is standing right next to me, leaning on the bookshelf. I close my eyes and sigh.

“Don’t be. It’s me. Something’s wrong with me. I don’t know how to react like a normal person. Jeers, whispers, sneers, those are fine. I ignore them, punch something to make them hurt less. Compliments? I don’t know what to do with those.”

“You’re different. That’s not necessarily bad,” He offers. His long fingers skim over a row of books and he picks one out, flipping through the pages. “More literature in which the protagonist kisses his interest. Is it all your human writers are interested in? It hardly seems worthy enough to devote entire books to.”

 “It’s not so bad,” I defend. “Kissing.”

“You speak from experience?” He asks.

“Second grade during the school play. Arnold Grady. We were backstage, behind the curtain. I thought it was a good time to go for it.”

“It was enjoyable, then?”

“Too wet.” I laugh, the memory burning like an old tattoo of embarrassment. “He was shorter than me - all the boys were. They’ve only started catching up this year, really.”

“I’m jealous.”

I raise an eyebrow. “What? Of the short boys?”

“Of your kiss. You speak of it fondly. Even if it was lacking technique, you still remember it. It must have been an important experience. I assume I will never know that sort of feeling - ”

I step into him. He jolts back, hitting the bookshelf. It shakes, and settles. I point up at him.

“Be thankful. You guys have the ceremony of flame. You don’t waste time with petty shit and he-likes-her-she-likes-him crap. Your future is arranged by your family. But us? Humans? We fish around blindly in a pool of seven billion people, hoping one of them isn’t too crazy or too incompatible with us, and we get so desperate that when we find someone we can stand for two minutes we decide to marry them for life, when in reality they’re all wrong for us. But we keep pretending they’re right, until we can’t anymore, and then we divorce them or break up and we get up and try again, and again, and it chips away at our tiny human hearts.”

He stares at me intently, as if I’m lecturing him and he’s trying his hardest to learn something from it. I snort.

“You’re lucky, Creeps. All you Gutters are lucky.”

“What you call ‘lucky’, I call ‘boring’,” Shadus says. “The human way of things may be more painful, but it sounds much more fun.”

I stride up to him, get in his face. His chest is rising and falling, his fists balled up. His ruby eyes stare down at me.

“Don’t do it,” He murmurs.

“Do what?”  I singsong.

He struggles with something inside himself, a pained look coming over his expression.

“Victoria -”

I press my head into the cradle where his neck meets his shoulder.

Life meets death. The end meets the beginning. 

Eighteen-year-old Isis Blake hasn’t fallen in love in three years, forty-three weeks, and two days. Or so she thinks.

The boy she maybe-sort-of-definitely loved has dropped off the face of the planet after his girlfriend's death, leaving a Jack-shaped hole. Determined to be happy, Isis fills it in with lies and puts on a brave smile for her new life at Ohio State University.

But how long can that smile last with all of her friends gone?

How long can it last with the guilt of Sophia's death crushing her?

And how long can it really last when Will Cavanaugh attends the same school, taunting her?

Isis is good at pretending everything is okay. But not that good. The cracks begin to show.

Isis Blake is good at putting herself back together.

But Jack Hunter is better.
