Helen Hamilton has never been normal. She has always been freakishly tall, strong and fast. The answer to why she's so different lies in the Delos family-a family who has just moved to her island. One probelm though- she wants to kill them. Starcrossed, for me, was a constant page-turner and I can not wait to get the sequel.

A Must Read!
An intriguing novel of two starcrossed lovers. Helen Hamilton is a shy 16 year old who has grown up on the small island of nantucket. A new school year is starting and a family has just moved to the island. The Delos family. When Helen first lays her eyes on Lucas, she immediately wants to kill him with her bare hands, but after some struggles, they can coexist. The two fall for each other but cannot be together without starting a huge war.
This book is so awsome! Must be my favourite of the year, is a must read, if you dont have it, go get it and read it now!

Loved it! Highly recommended!
Helen is just a teenage girl wading through life trying to avoid being noticed, even though she is anything but normal! Helen seems to have incredible strength and speed and knows that she isn't like other girls. If I were to stop the review right there, you would think that this was like any other young adult "paranormal" book and quit there, thinking it is too cliche or overdone, but I would disagree! This book is fantastic, and the "side" characters are sometimes more amazing than Helen! I absolutely adore Claire, Helen's awesome "sidekick."
Starcrossed is an amazing read! I have read quite a few Greek mythology books, and this is one of the best. I absolutely LOVED the different surprises that arise along the way. Also, the ?starcrossed? lovers is something that draws you in. You just can?t stay away!!! The ending has left me in anticipation, and I can?t wait for the sequel, Dreamless!!!!!
I read a lot of ?paranormal? young adult novels, and this one is one of my favorites. I don?t feel that it?s too cliché, too predictable, or too boring. It has just the right amount of romance, angst, comedy, and action to keep you wanting more! Pick it up, and I?m sure you won?t be disappointed!
