The Burning Star by Jessie Lane

Kay and her mom, Carli, move to Asheville, North Carolina to find treatment for her terminal cancer diagnosis.  The first day there Kay goes for a walk and is thrown into a world of werewolves, fairies, goblins, and many other mystical creatures. 

Kay has never had a boyfriend and has never been kissed.  When she moves to her new home she meets not one, but two teenage boys who want her attention.  Ryan saves her from a monster dog and makes a date for the very next morning.  Nick comes to install the satellite for their TV and is instantly attracted to her.  Who will she fall for in the end? 
The Burning Star grabs you before the end of the first chapter.  This book has mystery, romance, and mystical creatures.  Everything I love in books.

Although I really liked Ryan, I am definitely cheering for Nick, the underdog.   The antics between the two boys for Kay’s attention bring back many teenage memories.  Nick chooses to leave his home and his family to travel with Kay and my heart soared, true teenage infatuation. 

I truly loved Kay.  At 17 she learns her whole life was a lie and yet it doesn’t bring her down.  She barely misses a step.  She manages to return to the life she was born to live and still stay strong and brave.  A young girl I can hope my daughter to grow up to be, minus all the mystical stuff. 

I have already passed The Burning Star on to my teenage daughter and made my sister read it.  Book two of this series cannot be written and printed soon enough.  It has been a long time and lots of books read since one has captured my attention and heart this much.

A note from the Authors:Melissa andCrytal want to do something BIG after doing all of that hard work on the re-edit of The Burning Star.
