Move The Stars by Jessica Hawkins – Jacque’s Review


Jessica Hawkins is always a 1-click for me!



It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents’ house. If I’d known then what I do now, would I have kept on walking? Manning was older, darker, experienced–and I’d trusted him when he said the story would only ever be about us. I’d held those words close and challenged fate, but I had lost.

A part of me is still that sixteen-year-old girl squinting up at Manning, but no matter how far I fall or high I soar, I’ll always be a bird without her bear and nothing without him.


When I close my eyes, I can no longer see her. The decisions I made were to push Lake in the right direction–away from me. But now that she’s gone, would I have made those same choices?

I’d walked away like I was supposed to. I’d kept my distance. I’d bent over backward to keep Lake pure, but she’s no longer that girl, and I don’t know if I can stay away anymore. I only know I don’t want to.She’s still everything I want and nothing I should ever have, but if anyone can move the stars, it’s her great bear in the sky.

This is THE SERIES of the year for me! An absolute must read and now definitely sits as one of my top favorite reads EVER! We have all been waiting, not so patiently, for this third and final book in the series. Jessica tells such a “real” story, one that many of us can relate to when it come to the intensity and heartbreak of a first love, a soul mate, the love of your life. It’s the way she tells this story in such detail and depth that will hook you from the start. I found myself getting so caught up in the minds of Lake and Manning that I didn’t want to leave.

There was so many ways this story could have gone, but I got it. I got why things turned out the way they did. You will feel all of the emotions here. There is a lot of growing up, a lot of owning up to past decisions, a lot of trying to make things right. But will it be enough? Were they able to Move the Stars? YOU have to read this series to find out.

This is one series, that if I hadn’t already read the first two books, I would have waited for all three books to be out. It’s been torture waiting for this book. You MUST, MUST, MUST read Something in the Way and Somebody Else’s Sky before you even think about reading Move the Stars. It is not a stand alone. Read them all, back to back if you can. You will love them!
