Reviews

BookRiot "Most Anticipated Queer Read of 2020"

"This book has everything! Aliens set on conquering earth! A determined heroine with a hidden stash of books! And the power of music and stories to give those with every reason to hate the power to love. Who could want anything more?"--Joelle Charbonneau, New York Times bestselling author of The Testing and Verify

"Dow is an incredible new voice. The sensory details spill off the pages and transport me to new and unfamiliar places... The Sound of Stars was a true pleasure to read. I can't wait to see what she does next!"--Saundra Mitchell, author of The Prom novelization and editor of All Out and Out Now

"This debut has it all: music, books, aliens, adventure, resistance, queerness, and a bold heroine tying it all together."--Ms. Magazine

"Dow paints a moving picture of two young people's defiance and the power of song and story to combat despair."--Publishers Weekly

"There is much to enjoy in this story featuring a complex black teen: Ellie is bright, resourceful, and coping with issues with body image and anxiety. Morris and his family are intriguing. The depiction of the world has many similarities to today's society, and the overlay of speculative aspects fits seamlessly. A promising debut that begs for a sequel."--Kirkus Reviews

"The Sound of Stars is a stunning exploration of the comforts that make us human and the horrors that challenge our humanity."--K. Ancrum, author of The Wicker King

"This debut is a hopeful testament to resistance that weaves in commentary about climate change, racism and politics, and includes LGBTQIA and mental and physical health representation. --Lana Barnes, freelance reviewer and proofreader, for Shelf Awareness
