The Chaos of Stars

The Chaos of Stars - Kiersten White This book doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up..

When I first saw this book, I thought, "Egyptian mythology? Gorgeous cover? I'm in!" But in the end, this book just couldn't figure out what it was supposed to be. She's the daughter of 2 Egyptian gods. She has lived her whole life in Egypt surrounded by other gods. She has wanted for nothing, and doesn't appreciate anything (typical teenage angst). There is a lot of family drama that could have been explored. There is a bit of a mystery to unravel. There is danger. There is a girl coming of age. And there is teen romance. If the author had concentrated on one or two, this book might have been three stars, but sadly, it has no idea what to develop so I'm giving it 2.
