Book Review: Naming the Stars by Susan Koefod

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Genre: Sci-fi or Fantasy

Age Recommended: 11 and up

The characters in this book were very well developed, and I enjoyed reading the book until the last few pages, where I felt that in a rush to end the book and wrap it up, the author made it too confusing.



Mary Louisa Moura has disappeared. Her parents have no recollection of her, her possessions are all gone, and nobody can see her. Mary is terrified, desperate, and alone, with nobody to go to. Until Fish.

Fish is a swimming instructor, and happens to be the only person that can see Mary. She begs him for help, and on the way learns that he has more than a few of his own demons to deal with.  As if the situation isn’t bad enough, Fish finds a picture of  a person from about a hundred years ago that looks like Mary, and shows it to her, but it doesn’t actually look like Mary. Mary now has completely different features, and learns that Fish never actually saw the real her.

When Mary realizes that she isn’t actually herself, how will she get her old life back?
