D.O.W.N.L.O.A.D The Language of Stars [E.P.U.B]

Sarah is forced to take a summer poetry class as penance for trashing the home of a famous poet in this fresh novel about finding your own voice.

Sarah’s had her happy ending: she’s at the party of the year with the most popular boy in school. But when that boy turns out to be a troublemaker who decided to throw a party at a cottage museum dedicated to renowned poet Rufus Baylor, everything changes. By the end of the party, the whole cottage is trashed—curtains up in flames, walls damaged, mementos smashed—and when the partygoers are caught, they’re all sentenced to take a summer class studying Rufus Baylor’s poetry…with Baylor as their teacher.

For Sarah, Baylor is a revelation. Unlike her mother, who is obsessed with keeping up appearances, and her estranged father, for whom she can’t do anything right, Rufus Baylor listens to what she has to say, and appreciates her ear for language. Through his classes, Sarah starts to see her relationships and the world in a new light—and finds that maybe her happy ending is really only part of a much more interesting beginning.

The Language of Stars is a gorgeous celebration of poetry, language, and love from celebrated author Louise Hawes.

From School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—Sarah's social transformation from someone with a small set of unique friends to the girlfriend of the most popular boy in school, Fry, results in an exciting but ultimately shallow set of experiences. Perhaps the final straw in her estrangement from not only her former friends but also her own interests and values is when she is arrested for the vandalism and destruction of the preserved summer cottage of the legendary poet, Rufus Baylor. As part of their restitution, the teenagers involved in the offenses must participate in a summer poetry course taught by the famous but aging poet. Rufus's presence in the town is almost magical. He turns apathetic teenagers into poets; changes Sarah's irresponsible and hostile father into a calmer, more receptive listener; and convinces the community to forgive the teens for ruining the idolized summer cottage. Rufus is not without his own demons and flaws, as Sarah learns while working with him on her poetry. Soon, she begins to question her relationship with Fry and considers revisiting her former passion for the theater. Her struggle with the decision to be true to herself is one that many teens will recognize. However, the pacing is slow, the characters are one-dimensional, and readers will see the ending coming long before it finally arrives. VERDICT Collections that serve a club of aspiring teen poets may want this title to encourage their creativity and passion for the craft; otherwise, this is an additional purchase.—Lynn Rashid, Marriotts Ridge High School, Marriottsville, MD

Review
"A tale of self-discovery well suited for art-inclined readers who feel themselves on the fringe." (Kirkus)

"[Sarah's] struggle with the decision to be true to herself is one that many teens will recognize." (School Library Journal)

Full of poetry and ideas, Sarah’s narration has an exuberant innocence, bringing a fresh and joyful quality to a story about a girl learning to love the possibilities that come with independence: the chance to discover one’s true self and desires, while forging a path forward that might fulfill them. (Publishers Weekly)

"A rewarding character study [about] the power of creative expression..... This is a tale of forgiveness, listening to the world, and looking beyond the surface." (Booklist)

About the Author
Louise Hawes has written books for readers of all ages, including Rosey in the Present Tense, Waiting for Christopher, The Vanishing Point, and Black Pearls. Her work has won awards from Bank Street College, the NJ Council on the Arts, the New York City Public Library, the Children’s Book Council, the Independent Booksellers Association, the International Reading Association, and the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA). Louise has written poems from the time she could form letters, but poetry has always been something she kept to herself—a sort of emotional timeline and diary. The Language of Stars marks the first time she’s “gone public” with her poems. A tribute to Frost, one of her favorite poets, it is a sort of “debut novel” for an author who’s written several well-loved books but never one so close to her heart.

By Reader, Writer, Fan I finished the Language of Stars last night and feel like I just spent a week relishing poetry on a porch swing in North Carolina. I loved the summer-time pacing of the book and the very relatable character arcs and development. Sarah and Rufus will be staying with me for a long, long time! 2 of 2 people found the following review helpful. THE LANGUAGE OF STARS shows readers the true meaning of self-discovery By Teen Reads THE LANGUAGE OF STARS, Louise Hawes’ first novel that includes poetry, is quite different from all of her other well-loved novels. Sarah is a soon-to-be high school senior and has gone from the “wrong” group to the “right” group after she started dating the most popular guy in school. Her mother has Sarah’s future all planned out for her: she is to attend medical school and come out as a successful doctor. Everything seems to be going okay for Sarah until a party at Whale Point’s only famous landmark turns into a large fire that burns down parts of the house, while other parts are trashed by partygoers. Those from families with power and money are let off the hook while the rest receive criticism from the small town’s population and summer lessons with Rufus Baylor, the legendary poet whose home they ruined.THE LANGUAGE OF STARS shows readers the true meaning of self-discovery and allows for the audience to enjoy nice poetry while trying to grasp the deeper meanings. I absolutely loved reading THE LANGUAGE OF STARS because I could relate to Sarah so well. I’m still really unsure about what I want to pursue in the future. My parents wish for me to become a business lawyer, similar to Sarah’s mom’s longing for her to be a doctor; and I also have similar struggles as Sarah does when contemplating which friend circle to stay in. Another reason why I enjoyed reading this is because I’m a new fan of poetry. I’ve begun to enjoy reading as well as writing poetry on my own, so reading about a famous poet helping others find inspiration and teaching students to write poetry helped me as well. I loved the development of all of the characters in the novel and it was, overall, a very inspiring read.Louise Hawes wrote a very well-written story that I find very few issues with. The timing of the story was good but there were events that I felt needed further explaining to help readers better understand the significance of them. The ending also felt a bit rushed, which I can somewhat understand since it didn’t impact the moral of the story too much. However, the ending is a pretty emotional part that could’ve been slowed down to allow for readers to take a breath after reading that section. One aspect that I loved about the book is how Hawes incorporated a poem at the end of every chapter, although I wish the poems reflected the progress of Sarah’s learning during that chapter so they’d be more meaningful. I would recommend this book to all poetry fans as well as non-poetry fans. I believe that anyone trying to figure out who they are and what their future will be like should read this for inspiration.Reviewed by Alyssa L., Teen Board Member 0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Power of Poetry! By R. Poole-Carter The Language of Stars beautifully celebrates creativity in youth and age, combining a story of redemption with the transformative power of poetry. While I'm not part of the novel's YA readership, I still found Sarah's journey compelling and poignant. Her sometimes foolish choices and her longings, disappointments and hopes brought back my memories of being Sarah's age and being inspired by a very special teacher who expanded my consciousness with the study and writing of poetry. Like Sarah, I learned that meaningful work and creative expression are a kind of salvation.Louise Hawes intersperses her polished prose story with poems written by the various characters--Sarah, the other students, and their master teacher--capturing each character's voice and experience so clearly in that individual character's verse that I sometimes forgot that one skillful writer created them all. The Language of Stars stirs and heightens the senses--a worthy accomplishment! See all 6 customer reviews...
