When the boy who appears hellbent on ruining her life shows every sign of doing a 180-degree turnaround, seventeen-year-old Sadie Davis doesn't know whether to trust her head or her heart.

After years of wishing on stars, she's beginning to give up on her dream of finding true love. Can Jacob, the boy who has tortured her for three long years convince her that she hasn't been wasting her time wishing on someone else's star?

“We don’t know who we are until we’re connected to someone else. We’re just better human beings when we’re with the person we’re supposed to be with.”

I absolutely enjoyed this book. SOMEONE ELSE’S STAR by Madalyn Thane was a cute, quick read, which had me rooting for Sadie Davis, and Jacob Westinghouse. Two characters that seem completely opposite of one another that, in the end, find the true love they both deserve. There was a lot more that could have been expanded on, and honestly, Sadie wasn’t my favorite character in the beginning of the book. She seemed super clingy to her friends, and had a vendetta out for Jacob that, once the full story was given, was understandable. Jacob, upon learning more about him, and seeing him develop into the character that he became, was a fun character that really showed his true colors. As I said, a quick, fun read that was enjoyable. Loved the epilogue and would love to see more of Sadie and Jacob in a later book.

“I know that you’re not a doctor, I’m not in a motorcycle club, and we aren’t on a TV show, but this quote just rings so true. ‘We don’t know who we are until we’re connected to someone else. We’re just better human beings when we’re with the person we’re supposed to be with.’ You’re the person I’m supposed to be with, Sadie. I only hope that I’m that person for you. I want to be that person with you.”

With that, he kissed her softly on the lips and left her standing in the atrium, the entire world rotating on a completely different axis. Had he seriously just used her favorite SOA quote against her? That was what Tara said to Jax after his son was kidnapped. After he tried to send her away. It was her favorite damn quote from the whole show. That was beyond dirty. And damn it, it proved exactly how well he knew her. And the star. The. Star. Oh my god. Tears started to leak out of her eyes. That was the sweetest gesture she had ever heard of, and since she was a romantic, watched a lot of romantic movies and read a lot of books, that was really saying something. What was she going to do with him? And what was she going to do about Bree? She knew she needed a little time to stand on her own, to prove to herself that she was capable of doing it. 

She needed to be the hero of her own story.

Madalyn Thane lives in Western Montana with her husband, teenage son, four dogs and two cats. She has another son who lives in heaven with the angels.

Someone Else’s Star is her debut novel.
