Starry Night

Isabel Gillies

Gillies's debut novel for teens explores the exhilaration and heartbreak of a young artist's first love. Wren, 15, has always dreamed about spending part of her junior year studying art in France at Saint-Rémy, where Vincent van Gogh created The Starry Night, her favorite masterpiece. But that's before Wren attends the opening of an exhibit curated by her father at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There she is swept off her feet by her older brother's friend, the handsome musician Nolan. That night they make a connection that might change everything Wren knows about herself, her friends, and love.
