Review by Suze
Wilamena knows a lot about astrology. It was her mother's passion and Wil feels close to her deceased mother because of it. She keeps an eye on her love life and when it's apparent that she only has a few weeks to find true love she knows she has to come up with a plan of action. If she fails she'll be alone for at least ten more years. The question is how can she find her perfect match? Then Wil meets two brothers, Seth and Grant. One of them has the right birthday and the other doesn't. Wil is determined to follow her charts, but what if what her heart wants doesn't match the predictions she's been given?
Summer of Supernovas is different in a good way. It's a book filled with humor and wonderful quirks. I loved Wil's obsession with astrology, her unusual dress sense, her clumsiness and her ability to completely be herself in any situation. Her thoughts aren't always rational and sometimes she lands herself in uncomfortable situations. She stumbles through a lot of the scenes which I found really funny.
Seth and Grant are both kind guys. It's too bad the gorgeous brothers like the same girl and only one of them will be able to win her heart. They're so sweet and my heart ached for them several times while I was reading their story. When there are three people who want to find love usually one of them will get hurt. Darcy Woods describes Wil's choices in a sensitive way, which makes this uneasy situation great reading material.
Darcy Woods's writing flows easily. I lost myself in the story pretty quickly and just kept turning the pages without noticing anything that happened around me. I love it when I feel like that when I'm reading a book. I'm a fan of stories about star signs and Summer of Supernovas is a good one. I especially liked the creative way Darcy Woods portrays her characters. They have a lot of personality and she makes sure her readers are noticing it by adding all kinds of interesting and vivid details. For me the descriptions make the story. I enjoyed reading this book very much, it's an amazing summer read.
