Uncross The Stars was a good, quick, coming of age story that deals with high school rivalry, first love and perceptions of people because of appearance and achievements.

This book surprised me, I thought it was going to be a straight forward star crossed lover book but it wasn't. The characters aren't perfect and 2D with no personalities, they have flaws and insecurities. Darios character was my favourite he was a sweet jock with issues with love. What surprised me was Dario's character felt like the usual female leads with insecurities and scared of Love. I loved this role reversal.

Uncross the stars wasn't all sweet and light. It has dark themes of jealously and shows school rivalry at its highest which I found I really enjoyed. It just came out of no where and bang you have this dark story of rivalry. And to see the lengths some people go out of jealously and the vulnerable people used and hurt along the way was written really well.

My only issue was the book was a little short and felt rushed at the end and I was unsure if there was a opener for more to come. However even with this small issue I really enjoyed it and hope to read more from Janelle Rhiannon.


Janell has been writing since she was in grade school. In high school, her 9th grade English teacher suggested she consider a career in writing. After a decade in college and a Master's degree in history, she settled into teaching.

Writing never stopped. Stories never stopped. READING fiction never stopped. Now, she writes and publishes on-line. Invisible Wings is her first YA novel, a compilation of short stories centered on teenage life triumphs and tragedies. She believes being a teenager is difficult and wrote Invisible Wings to let teens know they aren't alone. That they matter. That even though life is rough, they can still find beauty and love.

Beside the YA stories close to her heart, she adores Mythology and Fairy tales. Anything magical and mystical. And dragons. And gargoyles.

She currently lives in CA.
