Starcrossed By: Josephine Angelini

Publication Date: May 2011

Overview: Helen Hamilton has spent her entire sixteen years trying to hide how different she is—now it's getting harder. She's having nightmares of a desperate desert journey, visions of three women weeping tears of blood. And why is she possessed by the sudden, unstoppable urge to kill the handsome new boy in school, Lucas Delos?
A love written in the stars . . .
A feud started in ancient Greece . . .
A curse not even the gods can break.

My thoughts: This one was wonderful. IF you get pass the never ending, but well written history lesson, you will fully enjoy this.
For some, you may totally enjoy it, but for others like myself; I found myself frustrated by the Greek  mythology that we were forced into. We all know the stories of love, hatred and war,  and yet we had to read it all over again. And not just once, the author referred back to it at every chance. 
It's sad to see this family torn apart by killings. Even if it was by mistake, your heart breaks for Hector. I know that Helen and Lucas will find a way to help Hector and hopefully find a way to be together again. I'm positive that Daphne is up to no good and she'll be found out.

My rating: 4 stars
