See All the Stars by Kit Frick

If you are looking for your typical high school drama story, here it is. Told from before and after the event you get the repercussions before you get the actual event. The story itself was well written, but I had a hard time getting invested as it was hard to watch all of the toxic relationships and bad decisions. At the beginning the characters were hard to tell apart, but by the end each character had grown into their own distinct person. This high school drama had a lot going on such as juggling high school relationships, friend groups and college applications. The ending felt a little off for me. On the one hand, it felt anti-climatic and on the other hand it caught me by surprise. The whole book I was waiting for this book reveal of what divided the before and the after, once it was revealed I just thought to myself “really?” and then the second part of the event happened and I was really caught off guard. It pulled everything together in a really nice way. The way that it is written, jumping back and forth between the past and present, did a good job of pulling me in as I wanted to know where the friendship fractured but in some cases it made it difficult to keep track of what was happening. I am giving it three stars because it was good, just not great.
