No Ordinary Star by M. C. Frank

(no ordinary star #1)
5 BIG, SHINY STARS

“At the end of the year 2524, where there’s no hunger, no illness, no feelings and also no families, everything is controlled, monitored, planned and created; men and women are separated; everything is just that perfect after the second enlightenment.

Felix was the most obedient, intelligent soldier in Baghdad training military school, until he received a mysterious message that turned his world upside down, and puts him on a journey where he meets Astra, a natural rebel, and a wanted citizen for her father’s crime.

How could they deal with each other in this cold world? and how would they save the world when they can barely save themselves ?”

First things first, the author, M. C. Frank, I want to thank her for even thinking of organizing a street team to have her readers’ feedback and opinions; i think it’s pretty amazing of her.

This book had me hooked from the first chapter; I was instantly transmitted to the year 2524, M. C. Frank’s writing is that good, and trust me, I’m not even close to overreacting. She has a way with words that turn every situation in the book into a deeply meaningful one. The feelings that Astra felt were too intense, it touched me; she went through so much, and yet she’s still surviving and even thinking about those who surround her.

The feelings that Astra felt were too intense, it touched me; she went through so much, and yet she survived and was always thinking about those who surrounded her.

Felix and his confusion, after learning that he was fed a lot of lies; how he’s recovering and just fighting through all these unfortunate events, is just fascinating.

And I just fell for this quote:

“the stars haven’t been visible from Earth in decades”

“Oh they have been,” she says, “if you know where to look. When you see a formation that’s irregular, a star that doesn’t look ordinary – that’s a real and no satellite.”

He sighs. No ordinary star. What does that even mean? “
