Stargazing For Beginners – Jenny McLachlan

ISBN: 9781408879757. 6th April 2017. Bloomsbury. With thanks to Netgalley for supplying my ecopy.

Science geek Meg is left to look after her little sister for ten days after her free-spirited mum leaves suddenly to follow up yet another of her Big Important Causes. But while Meg may understand how the universe was formed, baby Elsa is a complete mystery to her. And Mum’s disappearance has come at the worst time: Meg is desperate to win a competition to get the chance to visit NASA headquarters, but to do this she has to beat close rival Ed. Can Meg pull off this double life of caring for Elsa and following her own dreams? She’ll need a miracle of cosmic proportions .

The cover for this book is gorgeous and I cannot wait to get my hands on a physical copy.

I knew going into this there was going to be a few clichés, but honestly they didn’t matter. This book was such a heartwarming story. Don’t get me wrong, there were a few parts I wasn’t impressed with. A few characters too, such as Meg’s mother. The characters were extremely well written. I could easily connect with many of them.

The plot overall was good, not too much of any particular emotion, but enough to keep my attention. I’ll definitely will be recommending this to my younger sisters to read.

4 out of 5 stars.
