See My Review Below!!!
The Brightest Stars, a beautiful and gripping novel from New York Times and #1 internationally bestselling author Anna Todd, is LIVE!
International bestselling author Anna Todd returns with a gripping novel about a young woman’s journey towards love, and the obstacles life throws up at every turn.
Karina knows the harsh realities of military life. And like anyone who has grown up around an army base, she knows the background noise that follows a soldier home from war. That’s why she’s forging her own quiet life in her own little house. But she hasn’t turned her back on her family. She’s the glue that holds them together–when her father is deployed, when her brother, Austin, has another brush with the law.
Karina knows that she has to look after herself, that she can’t always fix what’s broken. But when Austin’s behavior worsens and her father’s reactions grow more extreme, Karina feels her own edges beginning to fray. That’s when she meets him–a closed book she’s desperate to open.
At just twenty, Kael is a handsome, brooding soldier struggling with the aftermath of two tours in Afghanistan. He’s emotionally damaged and closed off. Quiet doesn’t begin to describe him. But as Karina gets used to his stable presence, she finds it hard to ignore the way he makes her feel. In their time together, she finds the stillness she has always wanted and never found. She lets down her guard. And she lets herself fill in the blanks about this mysterious man.
But illusions quickly made are quickly shattered. That’s when Karina has to find her own courage–to untangle the truth from the lies, and decide what she’s going to do about it.
A riveting story about love and lies, THE BRIGHTEST STARS will stay with you long after the last page has been turned.

Another stellar book!
I really enjoy when Ms. Todd writes with a military spin. She gets it!
The Brightest Stars is the story of Karina and Kael, but it’s also so much more!
Karina is the product of her environment, her parents divorce and being an Army brat shaped her into the person she is now. She is trying hard to break from her past and is well on her way, still with some bumps, but she is trying. The only person she really trusts is her twin Austin, and he’s a hot mess.
Kael is a mystery, wrapped in an enigma. He is a soldier, he is just returned from deployment and is injured. But who is he? Karina, despite her trepidation, wants to know more about him. She becomes addicted, almost obsessed with Kael and that scares her.
This story starts with sadness, but we won’t get the full explanation. You will be guessing throughout the book. In fact when I finished, I went back and read the first couple chapters to see if I could figure it out….I couldn’t.
The secondary characters are just as important as the main ones! Make sure you don’t just fly by them. I got the feeling there is more at play than just complimenting the main characters in this story.
The ending, whew…well read it and find out! It threw me through a loop and I am hoping that Ms. Todd will grace us with another book in this world she created. I would love to read more!
This book is one you won’t be able to put down until you finish it and then it will leave you hoping for more!
