Gr 9 Up-Seventeen-year-old Wilamena's remaining connection with her deceased mother is the promise to honor her mother's wishes and follow her astrologically determined destiny. Due to a rare planetary alignment, Wil has 22 days to find her perfect match. After a stargazing session at the top of a water tower turns into a failed rescue attempt, handsome Grant Walker invites Wil to his parents' club, Absinthe, as a peace offering. The long line to enter the club turns out to be worth the wait. Though Grant has the wrong astrological sign, Wil has a magical dance with him but then learns that his brother, Seth, has the exact birth date for her predetermined love match. What ensues is a constant struggle as Wil fights to stave off her attraction to Grant while fostering a relationship with Seth. Grant; Wil's best friend, Irina; her grandmother; and even Grant and Seth's mother all seem to know what Wil refuses to acknowledge-she is fated to be with Grant. While readers will anticipate this challenge, they will enjoy the antics of the chase and devour each interaction between the likely couple. Not without their respective fairy tale components, the characters are also quirky and multidimensional. The tension builds to a climatic frenzy as Wil deals with a number of emotional crises. The ending is realistic and doesn't take the easy way out of the love triangle.

This is definitely a book I'll read over and over again, and an author who is officially on my auto-buy list.
** I received this book in exchange for an honest review. **
One guy she meets, Seth, is astrologically perfect and the other, his tattoed, guitar-playing brother Grant, is an astrological disaster. “Ah, well, I don’t put much faith in the stars,” he says at one point. “I put mine in people.”
The prose of this book shines with originality and humor. Wil is utterly loveable in all her quirkiness, as are her best friend Irina and her sassy grandma. The journey Wil takes is one of self-discovery, getting to know yourself and trust your heart, and to live life to the fullest despite its messiness and all its imperfections.
Summer of Supernovas is an adorable YA novel about a girl who believes she's destined to meet her Sagittarian soulmate before the end of summer. It's written in the stars, after all.
How does Wil (short for Wilomena) know this with such certainty, you might ask? Well... her late mother, an expert astrologer, told her so. With time running out, Wil begins to hunt for her Sagittarian soulmate. She meets a guy who is the perfect match in every way - a guy she is certain will be her true destiny - but her heart is saying something else entirely. As Wil struggles to align what she knows with how she feels, her steadfast faith in the stars begins to falter.
This book was TOO cute. Seriously. It's filled with SO many delightfully creative analogies.
AND, GRANT? Le sigh. He definitely just knocked a few guys down a slot on my 'Top Book Boyfriends' list.
This book has me wanting to say so much! I loved falling in love with the characters of this book right along with them. Will is such a great character with flaws and ambitions and the walker boys are both so swoony! I could totally see this turning into a series. I would love to see the other walker boy ending up with someone. I won't go into names as I don't want to give anything away.
I really just don't know what to say about this book. It made me giggle and laugh so many times. It's one that once you finish you will want to start it all over again.
This book is full of heart; it's about romantic love and family love and friends' love for each other. It's also witty, delightful, and full of cupcakes that sound so delicious, I could almost taste them. An all-around scrumptious read.
I would highly recommend Summer of Supernovas to any reader who is looking for some magic, some love, some hope and a warm heart as you embark on a summer romance with amazing characters.
P.S. Hi Darcy! Great book!
