Isn’t the cover pretty? I love cover art for books, and if I wasn’t a librarian, I would go into the cover art business. I think it would be fun! But not only is the cover art beautiful, but it’s a beautiful story inside.
Shine, Shine, Shine is a unique love story and an adventure between worlds. Lydia Netzer delivers a book about death, challenges, and what it means to be human. At times, even though I’m not married with children, I could relate to the anger, sadness, and triumphs of these characters. Again, it’s wonderful when you can feel and relate to a book like that. You should be able to at least finish the book in a weeks time, and it is not challenging at all. It was very refreshing to read such an interesting and not your average story. The books I have read lately seem to have the same tone about them. I never guessed right on the ending, if that gives you some insight.
When Maxon met Sunny, he was seven years, four months, and eighteen days old. Or, he was 2,693 rotations of the earth old. Maxon was different, as you can guess. Sunny was different, too. They were different together. Now, twenty years later, they are married, and Sunny wants, more than anything, to be “normal.” She’s got the housewife thing down, but Maxon, a genius engineer, is on a NASA mission to the moon, programming robots for a new colony. Once they were two outcasts who found unlikely love in each other: a wondrous, strange relationship formed from an urgent desire for connection. But now they’re parents to an autistic son. And Sunny is pregnant again. And her mother is dying in the hospital. Their marriage on the brink of imploding, and they’re at each other’s throats with blame and fear. What exactly has gone wrong?
When an accident in space puts the mission in peril, everything Sunny and Maxon have built hangs in the balance. Dark secrets, long-forgotten murders, and a blong wig all come tumbling to the light. And nothing will ever be the same….(cue cliff hanger music)
