Eyes Like Stars By Lisa Mantchev
Synopsis: All her world's a stage. Bertie Shakespeare Smith is not an actress, yet she lives in a theater. She's not an orphan, but she has no parents. She knows every part, but she has no lines of her own. That is, until now. Enter Stage Right NATE. Dashing pirate. Will do anything to protect Bertie. COBWEB, MOTH, MUSTARD SEED, and PEASEBLOSSOM. Four tiny and incredibly annoying fairies. BERTIE'S sidekicks. ARIEL. Seductive air spirit and Bertie's weakness. The symbol of impending doom. BERTIE. Our heroine. Welcome to the Théâtre Illuminata, where the actors of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. They were born to play their parts, and are bound to the Théâtre by The Book-an ancient and magical tome of scripts. Bertie is not one of them, but they are her family-and she is about to lose them all and the only home she has ever known. Lisa Mantchev has written a debut novel that is dramatic, romantic, and witty, with an irresistible and irreverent cast of characters who are sure to enchant the audience. Open Curtain
I have to admit this one was truly a page turner. Every spare moment I had was spent reading this book. It was amazingly written and was spectacular. Written about a magical theatre containing characters from all the plays this book really comes to life. Well there is of course one person who isnt from a play. Beatrice Shakespeare Smith. A girl who has no parents. She lives in the theatre and is soon threatened. She either must find a way to contribute to the theatre or she must leave. She faces a lot of challenges as she works to acheive this. Along with the one question always written on her heart. Who is her mother. With of course the always present character who we never really know until the end if they are bad or good, supporting roles, romance, and of course the infamous heroine, this story presents so many twists in the plot you will be amazed at the things Lisa Mantchev even thought of putting in there. Lisa Mantchev does not fail to amaze as I wait anxiously for book 2 to come out. Brilliant, just simply brilliant. Bravo Lisa Mantchev you have a winner on your hands.
