#Giveaway Starstruck (Starstruck #1) by Brenda Hiatt ~ Review by Fallon
4 Out of 5 Stars
Nerdy astronomy geek Marsha, M to her few friends, has never been anybody special. Orphaned as an infant and reluctantly raised by an overly-strict “aunt,” she’s not even sure who she is. M’s dream of someday escaping tiny Jewel, Indiana and making her mark in the world seems impossibly distant until hot new quarterback Rigel inexplicably befriends her. As Rigel turns his back on fawning cheerleaders to spend time with M, strange things start to happen: her acne clears up, her eyesight improves to the point she can ditch her thick glasses, and when they touch, sparks fly—literally! When M digs for a reason, she discovers deep secrets that will change her formerly humdrum life forever . . . and expose her to perils she never dreamed of. Yes, the middle of nowhere just got a lot more interesting!
Marsha is not what you would call the popular girl. In fact Marsha is just the opposite. Geeky and acne prone with bad eyesight. Marsha never knew her parents and was raised by her aunt and uncle. Her and her aunt always seem at odds. Marsha has two best friends Bri and Deb and they are loyal friends.
Marsha has always had a crush on Jimmy, till a new guy walks into class and Marsha can not even think. His voice pulls her in and she can not even focus on anything else. Marsha knows he could never be interested in her. Rigel is gorgeous popular and the new star quarterback and every girls dream. One touch changes him and Marsha forever.
Weird things start to happen to Marsha her acne clears up, she can now see with out glasses. Riley starts throwing harder and running faster. Their chemistry is magnetic and every time they touch electricity flows through them. Marsha goes from not knowing her past to really finding out who she is, what she is made of and what she will become.
Starstruck was so detail oriented. I felt like I read a book that if turned into a TV series would be two seasons long. The writing and story was so good I could see it as a TV show. I absolutely loved watching Marsha grow through his book. She never changes who she is and never compromises her values but becomes the best version of herself. I can not wait to read Starcrossed. This is a must read Alien book. Fans of Alienated will love this book.
