Blog Tour: Uncross the Stars by Janell Rhiannon

 Uncross the Stars by Janell Rhiannon 
Publication date: December 15th, 2014
Genres: Romance, Young Adult
Fiona Lavender is the new girl at school. She has a chip on her shoulder and a pension for poetry. Dario Martinez is the star quarterback, and the most unattainable guy on campus. Their stars cross when they are paired to study Romeo and Juliet for a senior English project.

Their connection is fragile and undeniable. But, Dario is afraid of what love will do; and Fiona is waiting for love to claim her. Will they uncross the stars and find the love they both need to heal their pasts?


 Fiona and Dario reminds me of young teens who get starry-eyed at the prospect of finding love that's real. What they don't know is that as their feelings for each other deepen, secrets can never remain untold. The question is, would the budding relationship they have survive the secrets they may unearth?

What I truly wish is to hear more of Fiona's and Dario's families. When they had settled conflicts with them, what happened next? It would have given me a clearer picture of the characters as they try to right the wrongs they did to the people who truly loved them. Also, the ending left several ends untied.

Nevertheless, Uncross the Stars goes against the usual teeny-bopper romance and introduces the reality of teen love facing adult problems.

Janell has been writing since she was in grade school. In high school, her 9th grade English teacher suggested she consider a career in writing. After a decade in college and a Master's degree in history, she settled into teaching.

Writing never stopped. Stories never stopped. READING fiction never stopped. Now, she writes and publishes on-line. Invisible Wings is her first YA novel, a compilation of short stories centered on teenage life triumphs and tragedies. She believes being a teenager is difficult and wrote Invisible Wings to let teens know they aren't alone. That they matter. That even though life is rough, they can still find beauty and love.

Beside the YA stories close to her heart, she adores Mythology and Fairy tales. Anything magical and mystical. And dragons. And gargoyles.

She currently lives in CA.

  1. Sounds cute! I like when families are involved. It just makes more sense. It seems so strange when families fall off the face of the earth, or do not even exist! Good review!

  2. Thank you so much Christine for stopping by! Exactly. Their families are involved but I really wanted to know more how they got to resolve the issues that t as the book focused more on settling the problems between Dario and Fiona.
