Every Soul a Star Book Review

At Moon Shadow, an isolated but up kept campground, swarms of people have gathered to celebrate, observe and study a rare sight- a total eclipse. In Every Soul a Star, a novel by Wendy Mass, we witness this particular eclipse bring three total strangers together in ways they would’ve never thought possible. The story is told in the most unique but not abstruse fashion of being told from each of the three main characters perspectives.

However, because Wendy Mass, the author, changes the perspective whenever she switches from individual to individual, so must she adjust the tone, vocabulary, general tone and mood to correctly cater each person. The primary component that separates the main characters has to be their personalities, as we see this difference between them come quite clear by the end of the opening chapters.

What I most enjoyed about this book was strangely witnessing how each of the three complete stranger’s lives come together or to see how they’re all just simply connected in one way or another. It makes the reader feel as if all of the pieces are falling together, or at least, it did to me. This story is a good middle school level book and I think a wide variety of people could appreciate it e.g. teenagers who possibly enjoy astronomy, nature, make up, and space. While it may not be exemplary, it is worth the time to read, in my opinion.
