ADORABLE. I loved this from the start! Mattie is a wonderful lead and I thought the voice was pitch perfect. It felt appropriately middle grade without feeling young. It's a liiittle heavy on the Shakespeare and feels rushed at the end, but those are my only complaints. Star-Crossed is seriously adorable and fun and I liked the depiction of 8th grade and their R&J play, and Gemma! Mattie doesn't use labels in this book but it's clear that she's figuring herself out and it warmed my heart, watching her begin to trust herself and her friends/family. I loved her relationship with her siblings. I'll be interested to see what other reviewers think of the rep but I thought it was lovely. A quick read worth your time with a seriously cute cover!
