Title: The Weight of the Stars
Author: K. Ancrum
Release: 19 March 2019
Ryann Bird dreams of traveling across the stars. But a career in space isn’t an option for a girl who lives in a trailer park on the wrong side of town. So Ryann becomes her circumstances and settles for acting out and skipping school to hang out with her delinquent friends.
One day she meets Alexandria: a furious loner who spurns Ryann’s offer of friendship. After a horrific accident leaves Alexandria with a broken arm, the two misfits are brought together despite themselves—and Ryann learns her secret: Alexandria’s mother is an astronaut who volunteered for a one-way trip to the edge of the solar system.
Every night without fail, Alexandria waits to catch radio signals from her mother. And its up to Ryann to lift her onto the roof day after day until the silence between them grows into friendship, and eventually something more . . .
The Weight of the Stars is the third book I have read by K. Ancrom. I really enjoyed The Wicker King and The Legend of the Golden Raven which I read both of them in January. When I found out this book was coming out I had to request it from Netgalley, I’m glad they accepted it. When I found out it WLW I wanted to read it even more.
I really enjoyed this book. I loved most of the characters and the relationships. I loved the parts with the recordings they listened to or spoke. I hope there is a next book or novella. I really want to read more about and from these characters. I liked the friend group and I also liked how the characters were with their families. I read they book so fast, it only took me a little over 24 hours. I’m hoping to be able to get a finished copy soon.
