    Star Collector Vol. 2 – Sophie Schonhammer & Anna Backhausen

    Fynn’s favorite activities are skipping class, smoking, and lying around. So when he’s told it’s time to shape up and try doing something else for a change, he has no idea where to even start.

    Then, on a nighttime walk around his neighborhood, he sees a stranger with a telescope up on a hill: his name is Niko, and he loves to watch the stars. Intrigued, Flynn decides to find out more about this nerdy boy and what could be so interesting about the night sky that he loves so much.

    This is the second and final volume of the Star Collector series.

    This is the angstier, more painful sequel to Star Collector Vol. 1 in which there were a lot of fights and unnecessary drama. Nico shutting Fynn out made me want to shake him. Also, Nico’s homophobic dad, do we really need him there?

    I liked the fluffier Vol 1 better but Vol. 2 also had many poignant moments, like Nico and Fynn’s visit to Nico’s grandfather or Fynn’s mom who knows.

    I love Nico and Fynn. I think they’re cute together and that they finally saw their shooting star but THAT’S IT?!

    More please!

    I received a copy of Star Collector Vol. 2 from Tokyo Pop via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
