Catch a Falling Star by Kim Culbertson pleasantly shocked me. The issues in this story, in particular the issue of facing your future, was more discussed than I thought it would be. What I thought was going to be simply a cute YA contemporary romance, turned out to be much more. I absolutely LOVED it!
Carter really was a great main character. I could totally relate and understand her issues. I loved that the story focused on her fears for the future and her need to help her family instead of simply the romance between her and Adam. Carter really was able to shine because of her issues.
I don’t think I loved Adam, Carter’s love interest. I liked him well enough but just couldn’t love him. I think it’s because, like Carter, I had difficulty distinguishing what was real and what was fake with him through much of the story. I continuously felt like he was acting his way through life.
& Lastly, that ending! I loved it. It wasn’t all hearts and roses for Carter. Not everything turned out perfect. It was heartfelt, generally happy, and fairly realistic, I think. Carter and Adam also shared a really sweet moment. Yes, I thought the ending was quite fitting.
All in all, I LOVED Catch a Falling Star by Kim Culbertson. 4.5 stars overall! I didn’t fall for Adam, but I definitely fell for Carter and her story. I’d highly suggest this contemporary read.
