Starry Eyes

Highly Illogical Behavior

Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett

Publisher Information:  New York, NY:  Simon Pulse (2018)

Summary:  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?
