More About the Author
Josie was born in a tiny town in Massachusetts called Ashland. When she meets people from Massachusetts and tells them 'what part' she hails from, she usually gets one of two answers. The first is: "Isn't that in Oregon?" And the second is: "I drove by it once on Rt. 9, I think."
Her next stop was about as different from Ashland as it gets without leaving the country. As soon as Josie was legal, she packed a bag and moved to New York City to attend NYU. Somehow, she managed to squeeze in a little higher learning between bartending shifts and graduated with a BFA.
Massively in debt with college loans, she then moved to Los Angeles for reasons that are still a little blurry. Something about the weather was mentioned, and a vague idea to write poetry and find herself. She found that she is a terrible poet, but she never gave up on the writing bit.
Josie still lives in Los Angeles with her husband and now writes YA fiction.

I've always loved anything to do with Greek mythology, especially books that turn the myth into reality in a modern setting. Starcrossed does exactly this. However, what is different is that it paints the gods as petulant beings that no longer have a role in human's lives. Well, as long as the demigods keep their end of the bargain that is. This was a really interesting twist on the typical mythology story, and made Starcrossed really stand out from the crowd. The idea of fated roles is really intriguing, especially since there is still the possibility that the characters could potentially find a way around that destiny and choose their own paths.
This may seem to be a little funny, but I couldn't help but be a little frustrated at the major roadblocks standing in the way between Lucas and Helen, especially considering the title.Read more ›
Helen knows she is not normal. She can run extremely fast and is incredibly strong. Her mother left her when she was a baby and she has been raised on the island of Nantucket by her father these last 17 years. Her best friend is Clair, an oriental smart mouth who suspects Helen is not normal, but loves her anyway.
The Delos family moves to Nantucket and Helen's visions of three sobbing girls with bloody feet drive her to attack Lucas, one of the brothers. He is able to stop her from killing him, so she realizes his family is different like she is. Struggling to overcome their desires to kill each other, Helen saves Lucas after he has saved her from falling after flying, and the desire to kill each other is over. The blood-curse is broken. Now they can't stay apart from each; other only their romance is forbidden because if they are ever together, a war would break out similar to the Trojan War, and lots of people would die.
Helen and the Delos family are demigods who are controlled by the Furies and Fate which cannot be thwarted. All the demigods of the four houses of Zeus are cursed to relive the errors of their predecessors whom they are named after. Starcrossed lovers are doomed since the Trojan War to relive the tragedy of never being able to be together. Helen and Lucas are no different but they are determined to fight Fate or at least find an end to the curse.
This was a well written story, especially near the end when wall the action and adventure was happening at once.Read more ›
Do I think its a must read? Definitely.
I'm dying to know more now that I'm finished.
It took me a while to get through this book and I put it down several times. It is very long and reads very slow. Each section of the plot seemed to be to long from the introduction of the main character to the ending that went on to long. The plot was original and the characters likeable enough that had the book been edited tighter so that it was a quicker read I would have loved this book. However, instead I felt like I was plodding through the story waiting for the storyline to move along and for something to happen.
Appropriateness: This book was fairly clean. While the main character did have a boy stay in her room overnight it was clear that all they did was cuddle and there wasn't much kissing. There was no substance abuse or excessive violence. I recommend this book to teens 13+ who enjoy paranormal romance.
