    1. I m a 30 something writer originally from the fantastic and possibly mythical land of Central New Jersey I currently live in New York State with my husband, my baby, and my cat, who might just be the most intelligent being in our household.I m no longer active on this account If you need to reach me, please try twitter twitter phoebenorth or facebook facebook phoebenorthYA.I love you guys Catch you on the flip side.

    2. wait, is this really-and-truly out now?? i am going to have to buy it!jews in space!!so let's get one thing straight. yes, yes, this is phoebe north's book. as in -phoebe north. and sometimes, when you read a book that a fellow goodread(s)er has written, there is a tendency to bump the rating up to avoid potential awkwardness.but the joke's on you, because we are only the most casual -acquaintances. it's more of a one-sided "i am in awe of her and read her reviews the way i read blair's and aeri [...]

    3. Starglass is my debut novel. Here are five fragments about it:1. Terra is a girl who sometimes regrets her words; a girl who runs her palms over her body at night and quietly takes stock; a girl who has heard things, said things, seen things she does not want to recall. She wishes she could distill her life down to a single, simple point. She wishes that it was not so sprawling or messy, wishes that she were not so sprawling or messy, too. Terra has tried for fifteen years to be good, but she su [...]

    4. I'm still reeling from my marathon reading session of this book. A spaceship traveling to another planet? Always an interesting concept, but I've had one previous encounter with this premise through a series that shall remain unnamed, and it didn't end well. This book turned my brain upside down, set my head spinning, so on and so forth. Nothing was what I expected from the very first page. I loved this book.A Jewish spaceship traveling to another planet. What. The. Hell.That was my initial reac [...]

    5. Recently I've been going through a strange phase. I haven't been able to read anything due to an extreme lack of interest in books. This went on for a whole month, and is still sort of going on right now. But during this time I did pick up a few books and attempted to start them, but I ended up being so disconnected from most of them and/or found myself being occupied doing other things. I mean I have lazy days but this is just a whole nother level. I think this phase was mostly caused by the fa [...]

    6. Starglass has a premise that we've all seen before - a community thriving in a spaceship, traveling the vastness of empty space in search for a new home. One notable book that's similar is Beth Ravis Across the Universe series, which I adore and hold close to my heart. And just like aforementioned series, this one also has conspiracies and plots going on behind the scenes, in which a rebellion is brewing and is about to lose control. Because this has been used over and over again in literature, [...]

    7. "But you know, Terra, if you didn't want to be botanist, maybe you should have drawn something besides trees." *** This review contains mild spoilers. ***"Starglass" quietly tells the first half of hobby artist Terra Fineberg's coming-of-age story on board of the spaceship Asherah, which has been traveling towards the inhabitable planet Zehava for about 500 years and is due to land when the heroine is approximately seventeen, earning her bread in a specialist position and at least betrothed to s [...]

    8. Wow. I loved this book. I was so impressed by all the research that was clearly done and the way everything lined up for the ending. My goodness, THAT ENDING. Starglass feels like very old school sci-fi for the younger generation and I couldn’t find any plot holes in my reading. The only reason why I didn’t give it 5 stars is because the beginning is pretty slow and could possibly turn off less patient readers. It worked for me because I fell in love with North’s prose. But once the climax [...]

    9. 11 April 2014: $1.99 on Kindle - I pounced on this so I had it in Kindle (I'd previously borrowed from the library). I think it's definitely worth it for this price!Review:I'm conflicted about this book, or rather how I think about it. On the one hand it does some things really, really well; others it does satisfactorily, but some things frustrated the hell out of me. I'm going to try and talk about all of these things.The stuff it does really, really well: Diversity. First of all, this is a Jew [...]

    10. This book is hard for me to talk about because it gives me lots of FEEEELS that don't have much to do with the book itself. Untangling them all has been the project of months, and I'm still not done. Don't worry, it's unlikely to affect you in quite the same way. I'm an eccentric case, as ever.It's more thoughtful and introspective than you might expect going into a SF book set in deep space. I hope lots of people read it, and I hope more books like it are published and see wild success.

    11. Actual rating: 3.5 starsPhoebe North's Starglass has been on my radar ever since I learned that the author was once a prominent blogger. I've never read that blog and don't know too much about her, but I like supporting bloggers, so I wanted to read this book. I always expect big things from bloggers who publish, because they know better than anyone what tropes to avoid, or so I assume. For the most part, that was very true in Starglass and I did very much enjoy North's debut.The plot on a basic [...]

    12. My official comments: Murder, rebellion, and spaceships done right: Phoebe North’s STARGLASS gave me the best kind of chills. I can’t wait to see what the sequel has in store. My unofficial comments: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!SPAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    13. Phoebe North is a pretty important name for me when I think of YA, GoodReads, and reading in general. The Intergalactic Academy was the first internet blog I ever followed (you can tell because I referred to it as an internet blog), and, along with her co-blogger, Sean Wills, she essentially taught me how to review by example, and the two of them recommended me a shit-ton of books.* (EDIT:**) So I was beyond excited to read Phoebe's debut. The experience wasn't quite everything I hoped for, but [...]

    14. 4.5WARNING: I couldn't bring myself to use commas(,) in this review because for some reason they are pissing me off. Please bear with me.Note: The extra half-star was given in the throes of subjectivity because this book brought me out of what could have been depression.This proved to be a very challenging read for me. First off it's been a while since I've read of a totalitarian or tyrannic or just any bad type of government that tells you when to marry and when to have kids and sometimes who t [...]

    15. Regina and I discuss our impressions of Starglass over at Badass Book Reviews. A wonderful tale about life on a spaceship headed towards the promised planet. Interesting use of Jewish culture and customs and beautifully written. What an amazing debut book for author Phoebe North! On the surface, Starglass seems like a young adult science fiction book but it is way, way more. Starglass touches upon so many themes and it can be read on many levels. Both young adult readers and their parents will e [...]

    16. Starglass is surprising. It’s seemingly a pretty formulaic YA novel. There’s an awkward heroine with the typical YA tropes: she’s unsure of herself, worried about her future, and pluckily desperate to overturn the current social system. There’s a love triangle—well, sort of—and the plot itself is simple to follow. But beneath the stereotypical exterior, Starglass ends up being quite different from the usual, and that’s what I most appreciated about it.For example, take the two love [...]

    17. The sole sign of my father’s chaos was the glass that sat encrusted with wine on the floor beside his bed, a line of ants circling the rim.        Even in the future, in space there are ants This is science fiction, however that is almost the backburner of the story.  There is a spaceship, travel to a new world and babies born from pods but it is also the tale of a girl becoming a woman in a world with very few choices. On a ship headed for a new planet to call home life has been pra [...]

    18. In a nutshell, Starglass is this shinny new thing, that have so much to offer but don't be fool because this book is pretentious and nothing more. Starglass doesn't have ANY redeeming qualities like none. I came up with nothing. If you're hesitant and skeptical in reading this book. I am urging you to run away as fast as you can and don't you ever look back. The plot doesn't make sense. It's contrived and cliche. I cant even. Let me list down some of the most annoying parts.(view spoiler)[Terra, [...]

    19. Hunger Games was a pretty good book, you know? Both post-apocalyptic and dystopian, after a fashion, it was a coming-of-age action novel with some really fun character issues. But it had some problems. I never quite cared about Katniss's personal and family life, for example, because Katniss never quite seemed to care enough, either. The writing was fine, the adventure was fine, and for our reality-show culture it was a perfect hit. For me, the most intriguing moments in Hunger Games, which rang [...]

    20. such a beautiful, beautiful (and thrilling!) book, with one of the most haunting endings I've ever read. one that will make you stare off into space for a while. the outer kind.I hope a certain someone is hard at work on the sequel.

    21. See more book reviews on my blog.This book had the rare ability to make me enjoy it and be completely infuriating at the same time. I greatly enjoyed the worldbuilding (shipbuilding?) and atmosphere and characters going on here. It was a meandering, slice-of-life sort of thing with a slow building up but plenty of fascinating concepts and character interactions to replace the lack of action. (I don’t need a fast-paced plot as long as your slow-paced one keeps me interested!) But there was also [...]

    22. Very rarely, every so often – -but not very often — comes along a book that just takes hold of me. These are books that I remember years after I have read them. Starglass is one of those books. I am not sure why I was surprised by Starglass. Perhaps because I was thinking — what more could be done with young adult and science fiction. I should not doubt the capacity for invention among the creative — and author Phoebe North is definitely creative. This is a book I am sharing with my 13.5 [...]

    23. Since trilogies are all the rage, I am sure that there will be a sequel, but did it really have to end that way? With all the available endings out there, you would think North would have compassion on us readers. But, no - she unashamedly leaves you in the biggest lurch and quite possibly not produce another offering for 365 days. Of course, since the days are longer on board the spaceship, time gets a little confusing. So I am going with the solid 365 of waiting to see what happens. The world [...]

    24. I don't read a lot of science fiction, but I truly loved this book. Maybe that's because the strength and beauty of it have nothing to do with its classified "genre" but rather, the things that make any novel a fantastic journey: A multi-layered, complex and achingly real main character, Terra, who latches on to your heart and grows in ways that are surprising yet totally organic. A society built with nuance and detail that felt both uncomfortable yet familiar to me. The world of the starship, t [...]

    25. Wonderful voice, wonderful worldbuilding. The main character becomes a botanist, and the sensory detail about plants is gorgeous. Starglass captures that teenage uncertainty and sense of being thrust out of childhood-- thoughtfully and with very positive energy. Something you can really feel good about putting in the hands of a YA reader. Can't wait for the next one!

    26. I don't know how I feel about the blurb, but Phoebe is pretty passionate about spec fic so I'll give it a shot. Two years is a helluva a long time to wait though. Perhaps GalleyGrab (if they remember I exist) will release it in 2012 before the world ends.

    27. Guess who just requested this on Eeeeeeeidelweiiiiiiiiiiss? *sings*I'll give you a hint:(view spoiler)[It's me! (hide spoiler)]

    28. I read an early draft of this, and it was amazing even then! Cannot wait to hold this book in my hands and read the final product.

    29. Um, please forgive me if I sound like I'm losing my mind, butI am a little bit. That's how much I loved this book. And now I have to figure out how to talk about it without sounding crazy OR giving any spoilers?Ok: here goes.First of all, if you loved the Godspeed series by Beth Revis (beginning with Across the Universe) and you've been moping around because you want more great YA Sci-Fi set on a generation ship? Here you go.Starglass takes on a similar setting and similar issues, but in a very, [...]

    30. 2.75/5i feel like i should hide behind a bush before y'all are coming at me with pitchforks and everything. the first quarter was a definite 4 stars, but (especially) later as the story unfolds it was kind of eye-rolling how a lot hinges on her supposed 'soulmate' and she (view spoiler)[ decides to run to the man/alien she's never met based purely on the bunch of dreams she had with him playing the male actor, so he can save her or whatever(hide spoiler)]. which i should probably understand, as [...]

    31. Oh my GOD, this was good. Jewish citizens 500 years away from Earth living on a city-within-a-spaceship bound for the alien planet Zehava and harbouring a secret internal uprising against the governing Council? You know you wanna!I'm not normally one for sci-fi but give me anything YA and I'm usually for it, and I'm so glad I decided to spend a ridiculous amount of money on Starglass. While a little slow for my liking at times, I thoroughly enjoyed the setting. Terra is a realistically flawed na [...]
