SUMMARY (from Goodreads):
Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Paranormalcy, is back with The Chaos of Stars—an enchanting novel set in Egypt and San Diego that captures the magic of first love and the eternally complicated truth about family.

Isadora's family is seriously screwed up—which comes with the territory when you're the human daughter of the ancient Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris. Isadora is tired of living with crazy relatives who think she's only worthy of a passing glance—so when she gets the chance to move to California with her brother, she jumps on it. But her new life comes with plenty of its own dramatic—and dangerous—complications . . . and Isadora quickly learns there's no such thing as a clean break from family.

Blending Ally Carter's humor and the romance of Cynthia Hand's Unearthly, The Chaos of Stars takes readers on an unforgettable journey halfway across the world and back, and proves there's no place like home.

This book was absolutely adorable. A prefect read for a lazy summer day!
The protagonist, Isadora, was great. She was so feisty, and even though she reminded me a bit of Evie from PARANORMALCY, I still loved her. Ry was great too, along with Tyler and Scott. The story was a bit predictable, but I still loved it.
The only thing I didn't enjoy were Isadora's views on love. They were so childish, and when I could kind of see where she was coming from, she was too immature to really listen to what her parents were saying and their reasoning.
But other than that small detail, this book was so enjoyable. I highly recommend it!
CONTENT: Pretty clean. Kissing, mild swearing, innuendoes, and mild violence.
