Hundred Stormy Stars!!!
I don’t know how to put my feelings into words because nothing I say will ever match up to how this story made me feel, made me think.
The story is of two sisters who weathered all kinds of storms in their life. They grew up destitute and staving for love but they prevailed. It follows their relationship with the World and with each other. Nothing about their story is easy or beautiful but it’s raw, riveting and ethereal.
This book is so hauntingly beautiful and mind bendingly mythical. It flows like a dark fairytale and leaves you wanting and hungry for more. The characters feel so real that it makes you feel as if you knew and cherished them at some point in your life. They aren’t perfect but they are tangible and believable.
I am 100% sure no one other than Mara White couldn’t have made such a story possible. She is a Queen and GOD her stories make my heart full.

-Does your sister let you touch her, Gemini?
-Barely, but, yes, more than anyone else. I remember even in preschool when the teacher would grab her hand, she’d stare at the spot where their skin connected as if it were an affront to her existence. Just stand there and glare like she wanted to hurt someone.
-Junipera suffers from a rare phobia.
-Please, what does June not suffer from?
-When did she start chasing storms?
-In third grade she started obsessing about the rain. Full blown? I’d say after hurricane Katrina she never looked back. And she didn’t just chase them, June became those wild storms.
Junipera and Gemini Jones, Irish twins born during the month of June, survive a childhood of neglect and poverty by looking out for one another. Destined for a group home, the girls are rescued by a rich aunt and uncle who move them from Northern Minnesota to Fairfield, Connecticut. One sister thrives while the other spins out of control. A violent assault leaves Gemini searching for clues, but what she finds might be questions that are better left unanswered.
