Book Review: Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney

StarryNights“All my senses are ignited, and my brain is buzzing, and it feels like I’m dreaming, but I know I’m wide awake and seeing art come alive. This girl has danced her way right out of a Degas.”

Romantic French teen Julien loves the great works of art that are so common in French museums. But, what’s not so common is that art literally comes alive for Julien. From the moment a peach rolls out of the canvas of a Cezanne, Julien is entranced by the new world unfolding before his eyes.

Then he meets Clio, who has been cursed into a painting that has just been found after being lost for decades. They spend nights walking through Monet’s garden, speaking to Degas’ ballerinas, creating their own world within the walls of the museum. But when the museum’s great art gets sick, Clio and Julien’s love might not survive the cure.

This was a romantic Parisian confection perfect for lovers of art and romance. Is it kind of strange that Clio has been trapped in a painting since 1885, but knows words like ‘bummer’? Sure, but just go with it! Julien and his friends are just who you’d want to spend a weekend with, especially if Julien could make art come alive for you, too. Read it if you like stories set in other countries, appreciate art for all its beauty, and want to sigh over a sweet romance.
