I am a fan of L. Duarte! She wrote Chasing Stars and that is Portia and Will’s story. Their story is such a breath of fresh air. Chasing Stars is not like any other book, you will be stunned with how well this story is written. This story To Catch a Falling Star, is an amazing story. I fell in love with this story by page two and yes I was in tears by page two. This is a beautiful, broken, lovable, and vulnerable story. I hate to say this but I am so loving Tarry……I am so sorry Will. This story makes me believe that there is one person put on this earth for us, we just have to wait and be patient and he or she will come find us. Even if we aren’t ready for them, you better hold on tight and just enjoy the ride. Never stop or doubt fate.
Please read Chasing Stars before you read this book. You will grow to love every single characters in book of these books. I guarantee it J
