How does a star fall?
Quickly. Completely. Unexpectedly.

Derrick Knolane escapes to Trinidad Head most evenings, avoiding his apartment and planning for the day he’ll break free of Humboldt County. Working in a music store might be fine for a while, but it’s far from the goal he had in mind when he got his college degree. Not to mention the fact that his roommate is a jerk and his family won’t stop trying to run his life.

Then Brielle falls into his world.

She claims to be a star. Not from Hollywood, but from heaven. He thinks she’s crazy. Certainly delusional. Yet, he can’t just leave her alone on the cliffs. So he takes her home.

And his whole world falls apart.

A heartfelt and fanciful contemporary romance novella, How a Star Falls explores the uncertain season of new adulthood and shows that sometimes the worst inconveniences make for the best miracles of all.

My Review

I've heard really good things about this author and have had her books on my tbr for some time. I happily picked up How a Star Falls and delved into the story of a "fallen star" and the boy who finds her.

It was a sweet story of two characters still trying to find their place, to figure out their lives, and to learn that it's never too late to change. I liked how they both had different perspectives and challenges. I also liked the friendship that formed and then the light romance that follows. There was also a slight inspirational element that was weaved through parts of the story.

Overall, this was a light and enjoyable read. I longer length would have allowed for more character and plot development, but for a novella, it worked.

Content: Clean
