Some of the best stories have been inspired by the much-loved tales of The Bard himself, William Shakespeare, and this instantly bodes well for Malorie Blackman’s stunning new novel, Chasing the Stars.
Inspired by Othello, Chasing the Stars follows the story of two space-travellers whose paths cross in the most unlikely way, and who have to fight tooth and nail for their all-consuming love.
This mystery-thriller tells the story of Olivia, who is heading back to Earth after a virus wipes out the rest of her crew and family. On her journey, she meets Nathan, one of a handful of survivors from a ship travelling to an opposite destination.
When Olivia’s and Nathan’s worlds collide, romance soon blossoms, but not everyone is happy for their new-found love. Indeed, what ensues is a tale of deception and even murder, as love and loss entwine through their relationship.
Having received worldwide acclaim for her dystopian series Noughts & Crosses, Malorie Blackman looks set to continue on her success with Chasing the Stars.
Your tweens and teens will be drawn in from the very beginning of this page-turner.
