Review quote

"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"show more
