Description

Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy, is back with The Chaos of Stars, an enchanting novel set in Egypt and San Diego that captures the magic of first love and the eternally complicated truth about family. Blending Ally Carter's humor and the romance of Cynthia Hand's Unearthly, The Chaos of Stars takes readers on an unforgettable journey halfway across the world and back, and proves there's no place like home. Isadora's family is seriously screwed up-which comes with the territory when you're the human daughter of the Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris. Isadora is tired of her immortal relatives and their ancient mythological drama, so when she gets the chance to move to California with her brother, she jumps on it. But her new life comes with plenty of its own dramatic-and dangerous-complications ...and Isadora quickly learns there's no such thing as a clean break from family.show more

Review quote

"White cleverly uses Egyptian mythology to depict teenage angst and generational conflict in a light, witty style... Readers looking for a fresh take on paranormal stories will find a lot to love in this romance." -- School Library Journal "Eloquent in its mixing of Egyptology with the experience of being a teenager, Isadora's story adds something unique to recent literary trends that blend the ancient world with the modern, and the character development, action-packed climax, intriguing family dynamics, and heartfelt romance will draw in fans of this genre." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)show more

Back cover copy

Isadora's family is seriously screwed up. Of course, when you're the human daughter of Egyptian gods, that comes with the territory. Isadora's divine relatives can barely remember her name. After all, they're immortal--and she isn't. Isadora's sick of living a life where she's only worthy of a passing glance, and when she's offered the chance to move thousands of miles away, she jumps on it. But as much as Isadora tries to keep her new world and old world apart, she quickly realizes there's no such thing as a clean break when it comes to family.show more
