Star

Book Review   by:auroraborealis     Original Author: danielle steel

"Mother knows best," this is the saying that everyone believed in and still believing in as time goes by.
A mother is a woman who bears a child, she carries another life in her womb for nine months and also the responsibilities accompanied by that. A daughter is a female offspring who's from her mother's flesh and blood. Two different people with a same heart and soul. A single life dwelling in two bodies. Two different people living in the same world. A world that sometimes gets so cruel, unkind and mean.
Mother knows best, would you still believe in such a saying if your mother treats you as if you're not her child? Insults you? Doesn't care if you're all alone and crying? Blames you for something you didn't do?
There will be times you'll sit around in a corner and stare outside the window and think why life is so selfish. Why she of all mothers became your mother. Why you are sad while other children your age are enjoying their youth. But don't let these thoughts bother you and let you down, this is what Danielle Steel'sStar marked readers. Star is about a mother-daughter conflict, a story of pursuing dreams and fighting for what you believed in despite the discrimination you get from those people who should be supporting you. This is the journey of Crystal Fayer, a woman who never felt her mother's love and care. She's been in a roller coaster as the story started.
Steel is one of America's best selling authors, but if someone doubts her skills, I recommend you to read Star, and see for yourself that this is true.
The words used in Star were deep but easy to understand which made the novel more dramatic and remarkable.
Star is a realistic story of a dreamer that is worth reading. This novel is definitely life-changing. It can teach us how to be a stronger and better person with all the criticisms and challenges we face.
It is a mistake reading it at night because once you started reading this, you just can't help yourself but to flip and flip the pages and forget that time is still running. After few chapters, I just found myself fighting back tears.
Star shows how a child could grow having no mother to lean on. Being alone with no one to hold on. With no mother to gain strength from. No mother to laugh with when something goes out so wrong
Mother knows best? Crystal Fayer doesn't think so and I don't think so,too.
