Présentation de l'éditeur

Stolen as a child from her large and loving family, and on the run with her mom for more than ten years, Callie has only the barest idea of what normal life might be like. She's never had a home, never gone to school, and has gotten most of her meals from laundromat vending machines. Her dreams are haunted by memories she'd like to forget completely. But when Callie's mom is finally arrested for kidnapping her, and Callie's real dad whisks her back to what would have been her life in small-town Florida, Callie must find a way to leave the past behind. She must learn to be part of a family. And she must believe that love-even with someone who seems an improbable choice-is more than just a possibility.

Trish Doller writes incredibly real teens, and this searing story of love, betrayal, and how not to lose your mind will resonate with readers who want their stories gritty and utterly true.

WHERE THE STARS STILL SHINE est un roman hyper mignon, plein de douceur et de violence, qui m'a comblé ! Le personnage de Callie est HYPER attendrissant et son histoire, aussi bien celle concernant son passé que celle que nous découvrons, est ultra bouleversante. L'héroïne m'a fait sourire, m'a mis les larmes aux yeux, et m'a totalement pris au dépourvu (dans le meilleur sens possible du terme) face à sa vision de la vie et de tout ce qu'elle pouvait en faire.
Les autres protagonistes sont, eux aussi, très humains et très touchants. Greg et Phoebe m'ont énormément plu, par exemple. Le lien qu'ils vont créer avec Callie nous fait vivre toute une palette d'émotions, choses que j'ai beaucoup apprécié. Même chose avec Kat, d'ailleurs ! Haaaaaa, Kat ! Elle et Callie vont se chercher, se détester, s'aimer profondément... Exactement comme dans la vraie vie, en fait. Je n'ai eu absolument aucun mal à croire à leur amitié. On y croit. On croit à absolument tout, avec ce livre. Trish Doller dépeint tellement bien la réalité et le récit bouleversant de Callie, cette jeune fille dont l'univers est détruit, brisé, tordu et dévasté, qu'on ne peut que s'y abandonner.
La relation Alex/Callie m'a fait frissonner ! Ils étaient si adorables, si vrais, si profonds, si réels, si romantiques, si mignons l'un envers l'autre ♥ Alex est un personnage auquel je me grandement attaché tout au long de ma lecture. Sa personnalité à la fois poétique, courageuse, déterminée et bornée m'a entièrement convaincu !

HASH(0x8caba294) étoiles sur 5 Interesting Story of a Girl Grown Up Too Fast 15 octobre 2013
Par Maggie Knapp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As befits a teen "problem novel," Callie's mother has drinking problems, money problems and relationship problems. Callie has pretty much raised herself, she doesn't attend school anymore. Truth be told, her mom is probably mentally ill. By Chapter 2, Callie and her mom are picked up the by a sheriff who discovers that Callie's mom doesn't really have custody, and her father has been looking for her for years. Her father has remarried, Callie has two half-brothers, and this new family lives in a close knit Greek community a plane-ride away.

Author Trish Doller does an excellent job of portraying Callie's wariness with her new and (an outside observer might say) "better" family. But despite the abundant love, the financial security and the clean clothes, Callie misses her mom and feels uncomfortable in this new family-intensive life. She is used to fending for herself and being on her own. Nothing unfolds as expected, as the rich and sometimes flawed characters do the best they can to adjust to new circumstances. Callie is sexually active, and her relationships are portrayed lovingly and realistically for a young woman grown up too soon. Probably best for high school readers, due to some mature situations.

HASH(0x8caba2e8) étoiles sur 5 Exhilarating and profound... Unforgettable. 24 septembre 2013
Par Jenna Detrapani - Publié sur Amazon.com

I struggled writing my review for WHERE THE STARS STILL SHINE by Trish Doller. Not because the book lacked for anything (because it doesn't), nor because I didn't like it (because I adore it). More-so, I struggled because I wanted to adequately put into words just how much this story means to me, both as a reader as well as someone who is highly familiar with the book's setting. Rare is it that one has the opportunity to read a book that takes place in their own hometown. Rarer still is when that book turns out to be both exhilarating and profound, something simply unforgettable. WHERE THE STARS STILL SHINE is such a book.

Trish is carving a place for herself in the world of contemporary fiction as an exceptional author who writes about situations that many of us hardly even dare to imagine in our normal, everyday lives - things that we only hear about from the news. What's more is that she is not afraid to take these already stark situations to even darker places and weave her ideas into realistic works of imaginative fiction that make you think. In Something Like Normal, Trish explores how a military man with PTSD deals with returning to a house that is something less than normal. In WHERE THE STARS STILL SHINE, Trish ups her game by telling the story of a young lady who was never given the opportunity to live a "normal" life, having been on the run with her unstable mother for the past ten years. How Callie reacts when she is suddenly given the family she had been denied all those years will both amaze you and break your heart.

As I said before, one of the biggest selling points when I found out about WHERE THE STARS STILL SHINE (aside from the fact that I adore the author and her previous work) was the fact that it takes place practically in my own backyard. While this fact alone may not be a selling point for you, the fact that Trish really couldn't pick a better setting - a setting that is as much a part of the story as any of the main characters (in fact, the location is like a character unto itself) - should be reason enough for me to address it. Tarpon Springs, Florida is one of (if not the) largest concentrations of Greek people in the United States. If you know anything about Greek families, they are usually large, highly cultural and set in tradition and, essentially, the prime definition of a "close knit family".

The point I am trying to make is this: Imagine you are a young boy or girl who has never truly been close to anyone but your own (undependable and not always there for you) mother. You have no roots, no real home, no family... Suddenly, your mother is taken away and you are whisked off to a place you are now told is your "home". This "home" consists almost entirely of people of Greek decent within a small town community where everybody knows your name (everybody knows everybody's name, for that matter). Suddenly, you find yourself being nurtured and loved by others and you're given a place to finally put down some roots. How do you think you would handle it? I think that, much like Callie, I would be a bit overwhelmed and confused, to say the least.

Note: I myself am not Greek, nor was I kidnapped by my own mother, but I am an Air Force brat (who has never really stayed in any single location for more than a few years, nor do I really have contact with my own extended family) and I married into an Italian family; so I kind of understand Callie's sudden "thrust" into a large family setting. Not to mention, I frequently visit Tarpon Springs, so I know quite a bit about how very "Greek" the community is. I know how overwhelming being put into such a place would be for someone more familiar with being a "loner"...

Callie reacts in many different ways in her new world, some of which I could totally get behind and accept, and others that, honestly, quite baffled me. At first, we learn very little about Callie's experiences with her mother over the past ten years. We know that she has not had it easy, no doubt, but we do not know enough to fully understand why Callie reacts as she does early on. This may make some of the events early in the book - specifically when it comes to how Callie treats others and the matter of her sexual experiences - hard for some readers to swallow. But, when appropriate, little pieces of Callie's past are brought to light and suddenly it all makes sense, or as much sense as can be made when it deals with Callie and her unfortunate upbringing, at least.

In spite of the bleakness of Callie's past, there are so many moments of beauty within WHERE THE STARS STILL SHINE. As the title implies, there is just as much light within these pages as there is darkness. You will often feel that Callie's community is embracing you, the reader, just as they are embracing Callie. Some of my favorite characters include the tenaciously optimistic, Kat, as well as Callie's yiayoula (grandmother). The goodness within these pages far outshine the badness.

While there is PLENTY of romance in WHERE THE STARS STILL SHINE, and the leading man, Alex, is quite the "catch" (pardon the pun, you'll get it when you read the book), I found that the book shone best when dealing with Callie's personal issues. The fact that Callie must deal with the skeletons of her past is the driving emotional force within the book. Much like Travis from Something Like Normal, Callie has a lot that she must move past if she is ever to have a brighter future. Still, the romance is realistic, certainly not instantaneous, and some of the best scenes of the book include the interactions between Callie and Alex. He is a man that any girl would be lucky to find. The events surrounding a day of snorkeling late in the book will forever remain some of the most emotionally gripping scenes I have ever read in YA. Ever.

If only all girls who have no real family or home - those who have suffered just as much, if not more than, Callie - would be lucky enough to have the chance to be welcomed into at least one pair of open arms sometime in their lives. There is goodness in the world and WHERE THE STARS STILL SHINE gives you hope that the stars really do shine for us all.

HASH(0x8caba5c4) étoiles sur 5 A very good but very mature YA coming of age novel 30 septembre 2013
Par S. Power - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller follows Callie who has been on the run with her mother since she was small. When her mother gets pulled over Callie gets sent home to live with a Father she only barely remembers. Callie has to come to grip with her past and her new present.

This is a fantastic book, difficult and full of heart. Callie has lived a tough life and integrating into a new community and coming to grips with her past. The author does a good job at making the reader really understand why Callie makes the choices that she makes even if they're not the right choices. I sped through the book unable to put it down.

Appropriateness: There is a lot of sex in this book, a lot. None of it is erotic or over descriptive but Callie's sexual behavior and her past sexual abuse is integral to her character and her story. There is underage drinking but no drug abuse. I would recommend this book to readers 16+ and encourage parents to use it to discuss sexuality and why people may act out sexually.
HASH(0x8caba4bc) étoiles sur 5 mostly because we both love books. After living a non-traditional life for so ... 26 mars 2015
Par Alexa @ Alexa Loves Books - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Where the Stars Still Shine is one of the most incredible books of this year. Callie's story is heartbreaking, but also hopeful; I was completely invested in it from start to finish. What makes this novel moving is how Doller skillfully tackles things that many of us might face in real life: shifting family dynamics, new friendships, and the promise of romance. Underneath all this, of course, is the heart of the book: Callie's journey towards making peace with her past, her present and her possible future.

Callie is someone I could have been friends with, mostly because we both love books. After living a non-traditional life for so many years, it's no surprise that she's capable, street smart and fiercely independent. Even so, readers will feel the need to hold her hand and protect her as she gets exposed to a different lifestyle - one where she has a stable home, job and set of people surrounding her. Callie's understandably confused and awkward, attempting to fit herself into a life that could have been hers if her mom hadn't taken her away. Yet somehow, the pieces start to slowly fall into place.

What makes her adjustment incredibly difficult is learning how to deal with her father, her new friend (and cousin) Kat, and a potential romance with Alex Kosta. These three are complete strangers in her life, and it's no surprise that she has no idea how to handle her relationships with each of them. How is she supposed to feel about this parent who is virtually a stranger and the family he brings into her life? Should she pursue this friendship with Kat, who is wonderfully bubbly and eager to be her friend? And what about the mysterious Alex, who's irresistible but also seems like a bad idea? Callie really goes through a lot as she learns what it means to have a dad, be a good friend and even truly fall in love with someone. She also develops a new dynamic with her mother, which is something that I thought was handled well. Even though it can be quite painful at times, Doller did a good job of bringing those various situations to life in an authentic way.

There are quite a few moments in Where the Stars Still Shine that I'd want to return to time and again, because they're written so wonderfully. The whole novel really transports the reader into Callie's life, allowing us to feel like we're experiencing everything alongside her. While I can't guarantee you won't be frustrated with certain parts or characters, I can say, wholeheartedly, that it's fairly simple to fall in love with Doller's writing, Callie's story and even Alex Kosta. This novel is such a beautiful contemporary read, and definitely one of my favorites for 2013.

HASH(0x8caba6cc) étoiles sur 5 Highly enjoyed it 28 septembre 2013
Par Lacey @ Booklovers For Life - Publié sur Amazon.com

I've never read a book by Trish Doller before, but I was thoroughly impressed. I requested a copy from Netgalley because of the premise and gorgeous cover. And I'm so glad I did because I enjoyed this book so much! It was slow and raw and heartwarming and sweet, and shows so much how you absolutely can find love no matter who you are, what you are, what you've done or where you're from.

Callie was a great narrator. She was real, even though she had been on the run with her mom for twelve years. She's hesitant about going back into a normal life, but I mean, who wouldn't if you've never had any semblance of a normal life for over a decade? I wanted to feel sorry for her, but she's a tough girl. She can handle her own, as she's been doing the past twelve years, even if some things in her past do continue to haunt her. And the fact that she's so resistant to her father and his family makes it hard for her to see how much they love her. Her new (well, technically it's `old') family is loving and welcoming, but Callie can't accept their love. She feels like she's betraying her mother, whom she still loves. But eventually, her family worms their way into her heart, and Callie knows that she'll do anything for them, and that they'll do anything for her. They teach and give her the unconditional love she never really had, and it was so touching and uplifting to read.

Greek culture is a pretty big part of the book, which was refreshing. The town Callie's father lives in is a Greek tourist-y place, and Callie finds work selling Greek-like souvenirs with her cousin Kat. I never really read books that feature Greek culture, so it was a good kind of different to read about the food, the people, the language. I loved the Greek touch to the book! Made me want to go to Greece, see some Greek boys... *sigh*

Alex Kosta is the older boy Callie meets who she instantly is intrigued with. He's beautiful but has something inside him that makes her want to know all his secrets, and tell him all her secrets. Their relationship was slow and awkward and bittersweet. I didn't really connect with Alex, but I still felt he was perfect for Callie. He brought out the best in her, made her feel, and made her fall in love. And Callie is different for him as well. They connect in a way that they never have with anyone else before, and they show each other that love is possible for them both.

I enjoyed reading this book so much. The dark and gritty balanced perfectly well with the sweet and heartwarming. I definitely recommend it for those who like their books a bit slow but moving. Now I'm really looking forward to reading Trish Doller's first book, Something Like Normal.
