Audio. Starry Eyes - Jenn Bennett

Ever since last year's homecoming dance, best friends-turned-best enemies Zorie and Lennon have made an art of avoiding each other. It doesn't hurt that their families are the modern day, Californian version of the Montagues and Capulets. But when a group camping trip goes south, Zorie and Lennon find themselves stranded in the wilderness. Alone. Together. What could go wrong? With no one but each other for company, Zorie and Lennon have no choice but to hash out their issues via witty jabs and insults as they try to make their way to safety. But fighting each other while also fighting off the forces of nature makes getting out of the woods in one piece less and less likely. And as the two travel deeper into Northern California's rugged backcountry, secrets and hidden feelings surface. But can Zorie and Lennon's rekindled connection survive out in the real world? Or was it just a result of the fresh forest air and the magic of the twinkling stars?

For review

My thoughts:
This really was how a YA book should be. I am impressed.

Zorie loves astronomy. I liked that. She was normal you know. She has parents that are around in the book, a lot even, I know right. Though her taste in boys and friends, ehh, could be better.

Lennon, whose name I kept hearing as Lenin and I went all what the?! A reptile loving manga reading neighbor. And Zorie's former best friend.

Reagan (did not like her), Summer ditsy, Brett (get better taste in boys Zori!).

They are all together on a glamping trip and then on a real camping trip. And Lennon made it sound so wonderful! I would love to go hiking there. Or maybe not when I think of bears, snakes and cougars. I also loved how the book took place in a national park. It was different and great.

Also, they actually talk things out before the end! Yes! I hate when things gets dragged out and I just want to shout talk! And they talk. Why their friendship went wrong, among other things.

I really can not do it justice. This was a great book. I truly enjoyed it.

Narrator Amy Melissa Bentley
Oh she is one of my favorite narrators! I love her YA voices. I'd choose a book just cos of her.
