This book deftly handled the complex emotions behind someone close to you -- a twin brother, in this case -- being accused of rape. Highly recommend.

This book.... just destroyed me.

The story follows Mara, after her twin brother, Owen, is accused of rape by her bestfriend/his girlfriend as she struggles to have faith and believe in her brother, when he tells her he didn't do anything wrong, while her brain and heart tell her that the victim is not a person who is likely to lie.

My mistake, I didn't realize this was a YA, young adult novel and it read like one. Good story but I would not recommend as an adult book.

So I read this book in two sittings... and it ruined me. This is an emotional story about two twins, on accused of rape, and the other trying to cope with the idea that her brother might in fact raped her best friend. This book is emotionally raw and uncomfortable, but so powerful as well. Definitely recommend it for though who enjoy a complex or tougher read.

Girl Made of Stars follows Mara after her twin brother is accused of rape by one of her best friends / his girlfriend.
This book... I don’t know what to say. Mara is everything i wish i were, and it’s so well done. So, so necessary, like a close friend.
