I’ve been excited about this new Claudia Gray book since hearing about it—she’s so good at mixing daring quests with swoon, which is totally my aesthetic. Defy the Stars doesn’t disappoint.

Mandy Curtis's photo About the Author: Mandy is a small town girl living in a nerdy world, or—if you want to get literal—an editor/writer living in Austin, TX. In addition to yearning for YA books—the more dystopian or fantastical, the better—she can also be found swooning over superheroes, dreaming of The Doctor and grinning at GIFs.
