Where the Stars still shine, review

 
 
 Where the stars still shine by Trish Doller. I know it's not Aussie YA as promised, but I'm waiting for some local books to become available in my library.
 
This is the story of Callie, whose Mum kidnapped her as a child. When her Mum is arrested she's reunited with her large extended family and for the first time experiences being settled.
 
I loved this book. However I must warn that this deals with adult themes and may be confronting. I don't recommend this for readers under fifteen. This book is wonderful for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider. All of the characters were well developed. I would have loved to have seen one of her past issues dealt with more and for that story to be resolved. However I really enjoyed this book.
