These Broken Stars, by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner:
For the most part, These Broken Stars is a solid entry into the rapidly growing YA space opera field. In terms of character, plotting and worldbuilding, it’s not as rich or well-developed as Beth Revis’ Across the Universe, and in terms of pure emotion, it’s not as gutting as Cori McCarthy’s The Color of Rain, but it’ll hold its own against other angst-heavy, romance-centric stories about opposites attracting.
Same Difference, by Siobhan Vivian:
Looking back over this, I've realized that as I focused so much on the character-study aspect of the book, I didn't mention that Same Difference is also an excellent, mostly quiet and restrained, look at how friendships change. And at how friendships can be salvaged.
Thumbs up. It was just... good.
