Constellations of ScarsConstellations of Scars by Melissa Eskue Ousley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars


For me, this was a very intriguing and quirky story. It takes place in Oregon outside of Portland on the ocean. It has strange little twists and turns that keep one guessing.

The story is about a young girl, Amelia, who is now twenty-one but has not left her house since she was 12. Her mother is very strict and has home schooled her. She feels that she is living in a prison of her mother's making and can't believe that it really is to protect her. You see, she has a unique talent. Magic rules her body every month. I won't tell you how because you need to read it for yourself. When she finally gets up the courage to escape, she goes on the adventure of a lifetime. Little does she know, that some of her mother's warnings will come true. Her first night in Portland, lands her in the bus station late at night. As everyone knows, bus stations are always in the scariest part of the cities. Of course, she is mugged within the first half hour and almost gives up. But this girl is tougher than one might think. With a strong will and perseverance, she plows ahead and ends up in Seaside, a small town on the ocean. She is mesmerized by sounds and smells of this tourist town. The characters she meets are like her and finally she feels as if she belongs.

A fun little story with a message, "be careful who you trust." If you want a whimsical adventure to just relax with and enjoy, this is the book for you.
