“Because it isn’t the stars keeping us together, it’s… love. And it always will be.”
When zodiac-obsessed teen Wilamena Carlisle discovers a planetary alignment that won’t repeat for a decade, she’s forced to tackle her greatest astrological fear: The Fifth House—relationships and love.
But when Wil falls for a sensitive guitar player hailing from the wrong side of the astrology chart, she must decide whether a cosmically doomed love is worth rejecting her dead mother’s legacy and the very system she’s faithfully followed through a lifetime of unfailing belief.
Summer of Supernovas is a hugely entertaining and beautiful story that kept me smiling in the best way possible.
Wil is a quirky teenager who not only believe in astrology but also align her life to it. She’s on a mission to find her astrological match before her love life totally doomed according to the stars. She had it all figured out, all she need to do if follow the signs. But what if the signs are not aligning to her heart? Which one will rule her life, the stars or the heart?
The moment Wil say her dialogue, readers will surely love her. Her snarky remarks, fun banters and quirky beliefs and outfits makes Summer of Supernovas so much fun to read. She’s like the life of a party –- someone you can’t help but notice and then once you got the chance to know her you can’t help but get your self tangle to her life, making this book a sure page turner.
Wil’s faith to astrology and stars though strange and bizarre easily mirror our own beliefs. Like Wil, we all have something we believe into, something we put into consideration when making our decisions, something we follow religiously or from time to time. A guide not everyone understand but we still continue to rely to. It doesn’t have to be astrology or the alignment of planets and stars, anything we all believe with all our heart and mind. Maybe like how Will follow her mother and believe in her.
In Will quest of love life readers will be treated with a slow-burn romance. With two boys to choose from, one will surely shine above the other. Which sometimes will frustrate readers (a welcome frustration of course), especially at times when we thought that Wil is making a mistake or choosing the wrong one. But in the end readers will be rewarded with smile to their faces.
The secondary characters are also outstanding, from Wil’s best friend Irina, Gran, Manny and the members of the band. It won’t hurt to know all these characters more. I would love to read more about them, specially Irina and Manny. Maybe Darcy can write a companion story with Irina and Manny on the lead.
Summer of Supernovas is bursting with fun. With hilarious and witty dialogues, swoon worthy guy lead, vintage outfits, and interesting characters, readers will surely adore this book. I honestly laughed way too many times out loud with all the quirkiness and snarky banters.
Not only this book is fun, it also offers a heartwarming story of different kinds of love, self-discovery and forgiveness. Whether you believed in stars, astrology, horoscope and other signs like the main character Wil, this book will surely shine like supernovas.
A perfect quick read for those are in need of a laugh or a break from super serious novels.
