Gemini Night

Title: Star Crossed #3: Gemini Night

Author: Bonnie Hearn Hill

Pages: 229

Review: ***1/2

Summary: Logan McRae's guy is far away and out of touch, and she is heartbroken. She turns to her mentor, renowned journalist Henry Jaffa, who helps her land a job as the Friday intern for CRUSH magazine in San Francisco. With a little luck, she could also be the mag's teen astrology columnist. All she has to do in order to prove herself to Stacy, her editor, is figure out the astrology chart for one of the celebs who will be attending the CRUSH launch party Halloween night. But when she studies the mystery person's chart, she sees disaster predicted for the weekend of the costume party. Who is the in-danger Gemini? Is it fashion designer Graciela Perez, the "Silver Dragon"? Is it her friend Chili's new guy, teen celebrity chef Alex Keen? Or is it, as Logan suspects, out-of-control singing star Arianna Woods? As Logan turns to her book Fearless Astrology for guidance, she sees something she's missed before. Big trouble is predicted that night for her sign as

Review: This book was interesting. It is a quick, cute read, but what interested me most was all the astrology information. Being a Gemini, there was extra stuff for me, but there are plenty of facts about all the signs.
The story itself was okay. The writing wasn't the best I've ever read, but it was far from the worst (*cough* Simone Elkeles? *cough*). I will say I was definitely not expecting the ending, however! That was a total shock, and made me want to finish the book quickly.
Logan is the average teenage girl, only she happens to be obsessed with astrology. I imagine you learn a bit more about her and her boyfriend in the first two books in this series. (This is the third book in the Star Crossed series. I haven't read the first two, but I could still understand everything.) The mean girls were pure stock characters, but her best friends were fun and added to the story.
Though I probably won't read the rest of the series, I can definitely see myself pulling this book out in the future to read about different signs. There are excerpts from Fearless Astrology (is this a real book? Probably a question answered earlier in the series. If it is, I want it!) and the astrology columns Logan writes, there's a lot of information in this book! So if you are interested in your sign (or the signs of significant people in your life...) check this book out! I imagine the other books in the series are just as informative, too!
