Can a beating heart bleed from the shattered pieces? 

Her heart cracked when her best friend walked away; it completely shattered when she lost her family in a tragic accident.

Now orphaned at seventeen, Charlotte Peterson is forced to live with her former best friend, Jacob Parker. Charlie, a talented pianist, desperately wants their loving friendship back, but something is holding Jake back. The more she spirals into the darkness of depression, the more she needs him.

Jacob vowed to stay away from her—no matter how much he still loved her. Armed with secrets that would have destroyed both of their families, he chose to end their friendship and walk away, which nearly killed him. As he watches the girl he once knew begin to fade away, however, he realizes that their relationship is more important than the truth he's hiding. 

Now it's up to Jacob to put the pieces of Charlie's broken heart back together—even if it means revealing the secrets he so desperately wants to protect her from. 
Will Jacob find a way to bring back the carefree, talented girl he once knew, or is it too late for both of them?

*It's a Stand-alone*


Under A Million Stars revolves around Charlie and Jake. Both are ex best friends parted by a tragedy in Charlie's life. After Charlie's family dies in an accident, Charlie is all alone at 17. Plot twist, she finds herself in Parker family and has to face Jake on daily basis. Does their heart still beats fast when they look at each other? Will everything be ever normal for Charlie or she'll always remain in the black hole of depression?
This was another mental illness kinda book which was AHMAZINGGG! I swear the plot was so intriguing and the character development was on point. I loved how Charlie fought the hardships in her life and slayed them all. Plus Jake was no doubt a bitch but he starts helping her a little bit. My heart broke again and again when they both ignored each other. Like mannn staaappp making me cry. It was such an emotional and powerful read. Depression has been portrayed in such a good way in the novel. I really loved THAT ONE BIG plot twist. I swear you'll be swearing when you'll read that part! 😅
Overall, truly amazing light and emotional read. I recommend it to YA romance readers!
Happy Reading! <3
