Summary
  • "Why rely on fate, when you can rewrite the stars?" -- Front cover
  • When Justine Carmichael (Sagittarius, aspiring journalist and sceptic) bumps into her old friend Nick Jordan (Aquarius, struggling actor and true believer) it could be by chance. Or perhaps it's written in the stars. Justine works at the Alexandria Park Star - and Nick, she now learns, relies on the magazine's astrology column to guide him in life. Looking for a way to get Nick's attention, Justine has the idea of making a few small alterations to 'Aquarius' before it goes to print. It's only a horoscope, after all. What harm could changing it do? Charting the many unforeseen ripple effects of Justine's astrological meddling - both for herself and others - Star-crossed is the funny, super-smart, feel-good novel of the year! -- Back cover
Summary
Convinced that her childhood sweetheart and she are ideally suited upon discovering he is an astrology devotee, a secretly skeptical horoscope magazine writer takes matters into her own hands when the young man does not return her affections
