    Yawn. Sorry, but this book is boring me to death. I am really disappointed. I had pretty high expectations for it ? silly me ? and those weren?t met at all. I made it until around page 160, skimmed the next 100 pages and then ?read? ? leaving out a few sentences/ paragraphs...

    Soledad is a dancer. Dedicated to training her body to obey her every command. And to proving herself. Through hard work, auditions, and an eventual move away from her Cuban grandmother in Miami to the competitive dance world of New York. Then Jonathan, a music student in the same p...

    It?s scary. Being in the center of that much love. So scary - and thrilling and...potent. And I know it goes both ways. My hold on him is as strong as his is on me. He?ll never leave. When the stars go blue is the story of a Latina ballet dancer, Soledad. She was brought up...

    People always asked why I danced. Why I'd devoted so much of my life to something that seemed to offer so little in return. But good as I was with words, in this they kind of deserted me. Every once in a while, I wished I could talk about it. How dancing created this huge, chaotic jumb...

    read the full review on my blog, holes In My brain WHEN THE STARS GO BLUE swept me off my feet: it was a beautiful and raw novel with such a strong main character and a well-developed plot. Soledad is a dancer; she?s not a tiny anorexic ballerina, she?s a ball of energy and powe...

    Umm why do I read so much paranormal YA again? Clearly all the best authors are writing contemporaries. I am in love with this book. I meant to just read the first chapter in the book store to see if I liked the writing and I ended up sitting down and reading through the whole thing in...

    DNF. I tried. I picked it up over and over again, but I was bored to death. In all fairness, had I paid closer attention to the summary when I pre ordered it rather than drool over the lovely cover and the fact it's a Latina heroine, I would have known it wasn't for me. It's just a lov...

    I can say, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there has never been a contemporary romance I enjoyed more than When the Stars Go Blue. Coming from someone who reads so little romance to begin with, perhaps that is an uninformed compliment. Maybe it was just that this book was perfect for ...

    This one was one of the most bizarre books I've ever read. At some points, I couldn't decide whether I liked it or not. The writing was beautiful. It flowed so remarkably, with perfect details and word choices. I enjoyed every part of it, especially when Ferrer described Soledad's ...
