Our Child of the Stars By Stephen Cox

Molly and Gene Myers were happy, until tragedy blighted their hopes of children. During the years of darkness and despair, they each put their marriage in jeopardy, but now they are starting to rebuild their fragile bond.

This is the year of Woodstock and the moon landings; war is raging in Vietnam and the superpowers are threatening each other with annihilation.

Then the Meteor crashes into Amber Grove, devastating the small New England town – and changing their lives for ever. Molly, a nurse, caught up in the thick of the disaster, is given care of a desperately ill patient rescued from the wreckage: a sick boy with a remarkable appearance, an orphan who needs a mother.

And soon the whole world will be looking for him.

Cory’s arrival has changed everything. And the Myers will do anything to keep him safe.

My Thoughts:

I think the cover of this book looks stunning and you can really see where they got the idea from relating to the story. When reading the plot I was not sure what to expect and I actually thought the story would turn out differently though I am not saying I didn’t like it but for me when a book has sci-fi in it I tend to not really read as I would rather read about real life situations. But that is just my personal opionion others may enjoy this book if you like sci-fi.

I received a ARC copy of this book for an honest review.

After Eden By Helen Douglas

After Eden By Helen Douglas

When mysterious new boy Ryan Westland shows up at her school Eden Anfield is intrigued. On the face of it, he’s a typical American teenager. So how come he doesn’t recognise pizza and hasn’t heard of Hitler? What puzzles Eden most, however, is the interest he’s taking in her.

As Eden falls in love with Ryan, she stumbles across a book in Ryan’s bedroom – a biography of her best friend – written fifty years in the future. Unravelling Ryan’s secret, she discovers he has one unbelievably important purpose … and she might just have destroyed his only chance of success.

My Thoughts:

I managed to read this book within a day. It is a slim book that won’t take you to long to read. I felt that the story moved at a good pace and I was interested to see what would happen next. This was a nice, light read aimed at young adults with some sci fi thrown in. I really enjoyed learning about all the different stars too. Will be interested to read the sequel to this book.
