I make no excuses for my love of Kelsey Kingsley s characters, and this Forget the Stars is no exception We met our successful guitarist in previous books Chad Chaddington Bear, oh my gosh is thirty and not where he thought he d be at this age He is living at home between tours with a over involved parents, has a girlfriend who won t commit, and has some serious health issues that are getting worse He also has some lingering guilt for treating his childhood friend and neighbor, Molly, poorly while chasing high school popularity Molly, on the other hand, has worked hard to put the bullied girl and abandoned friend of her childhood behind her as she enjoys local success as a singer She, too, has an overbearing mom with whom she shares some trauma from her dad leaving them for a newer, shinier family This understandably shapes Molly s self worth Where Molly could easily be written as a bitter, she chooses to remain as open hearted and caring Molly has scars with which we all can relate, but she shines in spite and in some cases because of them Chad and Molly reconnect and forge a new friendship, one where Chad and his band give Molly the chance to open for their band s tour The proximity lends Molly a window into how serious Chad s health issues have become She forces him to be honest about it and is his support when he is diagnosed with UC Here, Kingsley not only shows the real symptoms and effects of Inflammatory Bowel Disease but also lends such vulnerability to both characters In the hands of a less compassionate or capable author, this storyline could have been mocking or become preachy The opposite that happens here Chad cannot be separated from his chronic diagnosis, and that has repercussions His parents don t understand, his girlfriend is horrible, and he has to take time off from the band Molly is his steadying force, and their friendship grows Through the book, both Chad and Molly explore their regrets, what happens when one stops wishing, and what happens when real life doesn t align with the plan As Molly s star rises, can she see that she is worthy of life s opportunities and permanent romantic love Can Chad find the love and family he so badly wants while learning to live with his diagnosis You will root for these two to embrace what they each deserve.I wish I could explain my love of the world of the band members and their families Through each book, they just get better I love seeing all of my favorites again, and their support of Chad through his diagnosis is exactly what we would want for ourselves Sebastian and Chad s friendship is so sweet and authentic to the two characters Molly s parking lot yoga sessions, rom coms galore, and plenty of unsolicited Sebastian advice give the book heart and laughter I would want these characters to be my friends They are so down to earth and decent.I ll end with what I always say about Kelsey Kingsley s work Just get it and read it But this book is extra special It gives us a glimpse into a painful disease that so many of us either experience or know someone who is affected Many people with IBD suffer alone since people can be so insensitive to the disease s realties I hope by shining a light on IBD UC, we can all be empathetic to those whose diseases aren t visible There s so much goodness in this book, and I cannot wait for people to experience it
