Seventeen-year-old Julien is a romantic—he loves spending his free time at the museum poring over the great works of the Impressionists. But one night, a peach falls out of a Cezanne, Degas ballerinas dance across the floor, and Julien is not hallucinating.
The art is reacting to a curse that trapped a beautiful girl, Clio, in a painting forever. Julien has a chance to free Clio and he can’t help but fall in love with her. But love is a curse in its own right. And soon paintings begin to bleed and disappear. Together Julien and Clio must save the world’s greatest art . . . at the expense of the greatest love they’ve ever known.
Like a master painter herself, Daisy Whitney brings inordinate talent and ingenuity to this romantic, suspenseful, and sophisticated new novel. A beautifully decorated package makes it a must-own in print.
Guys, this is one of those books that feels like a total Tiff book. I am so CRAZY excited for this one, and I have to thank Jamie at The Perpetual Page-Turner
for introducing it to me through her Catalogue Creepin post
. Starry Nights seems to have it all – a beautiful contemporary romance, a boy protagonist, art from one of my favourite museums in the world, Musee D’Orsay, and a fantasy-adventure. Also, look at that COVER.
I’ve been noticing an awesome trend of parallel world, or magical elements in what is basically a contemporary story in YA lately, and I am LOVING IT. This is the kind of fantasy/paranormal I can get behind.
Have you guys heard about Starry Nights, or Daisy Whitney’s other 2013 release, When You Were Here (also on my TBR)? Are you as nutso as me over the concepts? Let me know in the comments!
