Where the Stars Still Shine is a gorgeous must-read about past trauma and second chances. Callie has been running her whole life with her crazy mom who also happens to be her kidnapper. After living a rough 17 years, her mom ended up being arrested and Callie finally met with her father once again. But now he has his own family, and Callie isn’t his only kid now. As she struggles with finding where she belongs, Callie also meets Alex, a well-known womanizer. But as the two get closer and closer, love is finally starting to not seem impossible for Callie. Faced with grief from her childhood abuse, can Callie learn to let others love her and more importantly, learn to love herself? I absolutely loved how this book depicted how complicated family truly is. The romance is also very deep and meaningful and complimented the plot perfectly. The ending was a little too short in my opinion, but I really loved this book and would definitely recommend it. Rating: 4.5/5

"Where the stars still shine" is a very well written novel that follows the difficult life of a girl named Callie and the events that help her mature and grow as a teenager.
It's a very hard book to put down once you have started. I highly recommend it.

I agree with mikeandfel with the book being unable to put down after starting it. I enjoy of Callie matures over the course of the novel.
