    (I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and Bloomsbury USA Childrens publishing in exchange for an honest review)




    Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney had such promise. Set in Paris, France it's a story of a romantic teenage boy who falls in love with a girl trapped in a painting. Pitched as “Night at the Museum meets The Da Vinci Code, with a feminist twist.” I should have loved it. It has everything that I like in a book, but it still fell a bit flat. I just couldn't connect with Julien or Clio at all. The premise for a romantic story is there but it lacked the emotional element to really bring it to life for me.




    There are some unanswered questions at the end. What happened to the father and daughter forgery team? Why does Julien's mother place so much stake in what he sees in the art and its condition? Does she know he's different? That part seemed a bit surreal to me. He's a tour guide, granted he loves the art more than anything before Clio comes along, but he's still just a teenager. Her easy acceptance in regards to his ability to heal the art by his presence alone just left me stumped.




     It's definitely a cute read though and I'm sure many people will enjoy it. I just like to immerse myself in a story and its characters. I find it frustrating when I can't connect with them.  The most interesting parts of the book for me where the ones involving Bonheur and his sister Sophia. The humor and sense of adventure these two supporting characters brought to the story are the only reason I kept reading until the end. 
    I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a cute love story and young adult fiction.

    It's nightime at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris and the paintings are changing, but at first only seventeen-year-old student Julien can see it. As the most famous artworks around the world start to disintegrate, he discovers that his new love might be able to help him save them all. Romantic and passionate,even if you have no interest in art or the artists who painted the world's masterpieces, this book will capture your heart. If you love art, then you should already be reading it. Totally different from all of the other offerings out there, STARRY NIGHTS is that rare combination of fantasy and reality that will have readers hooked from the very first page.
