Bonnie Hearn Hill brought astrology to high school life in Aries Rising, the first book in the Star Crossed series.
Logan McRae is a sophomore in her high school who's trying hard to get into a summer writing camp. But first, she has to deal with Mr. Franklin, her English teacher (whom everybody calls Frankenstein).
Frankenstein wants it personal, and as an Aquarius, Logan feels like she just can't.
Also, there's Nathan, (the senior that Logan kissed last year) who is hunted by the perfect Geneva. Nobody can resist Geneva's cute butt. Or her beauty. While Logan thinks she doesn't have anything in her favor, one day it just did.
Chili and Paige, Logan's two best friends were in Logan's house when they were discovering Logan's mom's old high school stuff (Her mom is a professional golfer, therefore is on tour at the time). In the box of ancients, she found a book called Fearless Astrology.
Now she's ready--with tips from the Fearless Astrology, she's going for Nathan, the Leo who loves spotlight, helping Chili and Paige for their own love lives and catching the Gears (a group of kids that pull pranks around the school) at the same time.
After all, there's Fearless Astrology to guide her. What could possibly go wrong?
What I like about the book: Funny, fast-paced and mysterious. Especially the part regarding Gears.
What I dislike about the book: Nothing. It's pretty much interesting reading about new things--Astrology, I mean.
