Farmost Star I See Tonightby Jonathan W. Thurston
They were wolves-two lupine teenagers seeking refuge from the hazards of a winter-cursed land. Rian howls to the rising sun. Lissa howls to the moon at night. When fate forces the two forlorn calls to coincide, they realize that they are not alone. As Rian's black fur brushes across Lissa's own white fur, their destinies become intertwined in this tale of friendship and love. Rian's father is not pleased with the disappearances of his son though, and a lustful hotshot from another pack tries to take Lissa for his own. In this world of wolves and romance, both Rian and Lissa must decide what they truly value and make sacrifices if they want to stay together.
Farmost Star I See Tonight a young adult, fantasy romance novel about the dramas and trials of teenage love in the form of two love-struck wolves. Being two completely different wolves, the pair symbolize the harmony that can exist in relationships involving people of equally different backgrounds. In this novel of raw emotion, the point of view switches from Rian's eyes to Lissa's, and the reversal of perspective continues in order to give a clear sense of the black and white prevalent in the novel. These unique characters take the plot in a direction entirely different from the average romance novel, being neither a happy ending nor a tragedy. Rather, this story gives hope to teenage readers by letting them know that the road to love and life is not paved in asphalt or even diamond. It is broken glass-painful yet shimmering with beauty.
