My dad said that the impossible is only impossible if you don’t even try. So I want to try
Starfield is Elle’s entire life. Her father introduced her to this sci-fi TV show when she was a kid, and she loved it ever since. So when a cosplay contest for a new Starfield movie is announced, she knows she has to enter.
The writing feels very… immature. Juvenile. And I know that it’s a book from a POV of two teenagers, but it still felt a little bit off.
Elle is a wonderful, sweet soul, completely in love with her favourite TV Show – Starfield. But… she’s not much else? I felt like her character was a little one-dimensional, and that’s a real shame, because she had tons of potential.
I feel like Darien was created with a bit more care, though… insured abs? Really? Is that a thing? How does that even work? Is it in case some maniac jumps you in a dark alley and I don’t know… steals your abs I guess? Or does it also work when you just gain some fat? Because in that case I think I need to insure my abs. Once I get them. Someday.
Still, my favourite character was Sage. She’s an absolutely incredible, loyal friend. I couldn’t get enough of the wonderful friendship between her and Elle. Their scenes together are honestly the best part of this book.
This story is absolutely adorable. And besides being a really creative Cinderella retelling, it’s also a wonderful homage paid to all of the geeks out there. I think if you have ever been involved in any fandom, you are going to find something relatable in this story. There were times when I had tears in my eyes, because this book perfectly described thoughts and feelings I was never able to properly express.
It’s an insanely adorable story. Is it realistic? No, not really. But it’s cute and fun, so who cares?
