Where the Stars Still Shine

Where the Stars Still Shine - Trish Doller

From Goodreads: Stolen as a child from her large and loving family, and on the run with her mom for more than ten years, Callie has only the barest idea of what normal life might be like. She's never had a home, never gone to school, and has gotten most of her meals from laundromat vending machines. Her dreams are haunted by memories she’d like to forget completely. But when Callie’s mom is finally arrested for kidnapping her, and Callie’s real dad whisks her back to what would have been her life, in a small town in Florida, Callie must find a way to leave the past behind. She must learn to be part of a family. And she must believe that love--even with someone who seems an improbable choice--is more than just a possibility.


This was my second novel by Trish Doller and I enjoy her books, although I probably will never find myself seeking out her back cataloge and stick to getting her books on a more impulsive level. 

What I like about this particular novel is that I found it interesting. The plot wasn't exactly unique, but put into the setting and the characters...I found myself more invested in this book. I loved the Greek-American family that Callie is reunited with. 
I was a bit disappointed with the lack of depth this book had. It wasn't shallow, there was a lot of emotions involved so it wasn't that....I just did not feel challenged by this book. It was a perfect read immediately following the books it did...at the time I just needed some quick, fun read...but if I had read it at another time I would definitely feel it's lack of challenging me. 
If you are looking for a quick weekend read, then this definitely would be a decent pick...but if you are looking for something with a bit more depth...then perhaps give this one a miss.
