Synopsis

Starry Night by Isabel Gillies

Sometimes one night can change everything. On this particular night, Wren and her three best friends are attending a black-tie party at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to celebrate the opening of a major exhibit curated by her father. An enormous wind blasts through the city, making everyone feel that something unexpected and perhaps wonderful will happen. And for Wren, that something wonderful is Nolan. With his root-beer-brown Michelangelo eyes, Nolan changes the way Wren's heart beats. Suddenly everything is different. Nothing makes sense except for this boy. What happens to your life when everything changes, even your heart? How much do you give up? How much do you keep?

Reviews

A love story set in New York's Upper West Side, Starry Night follows Wren through her first heartbreak. VOYA

There is much to recommend about this touching story of first love, betrayal, and friendship. Booklist

Gillie's work as a momoirist certainly influences Starry Night, which is written with a perspective that only an adult's hindsight can bring. The conversational style will give readers the feeling that the protagonist is a close friend sharing her deepest secrets. School Library Journal

An actor and memoirist's debut novel for teens explores the exhilaration - and heartbreak - of passionate first love . . . Authentic look at teen love and betrayal that will entertain and touch readers. Kirkus Reviews

Still, Wren's rude awakening from her fairy-tale happiness will be felt deeply, alerting romantics to the danger of losing oneself amid the dazzle of infatuation. Publisher's Weekly
