Fifteen-year-old Jacob Kelly would love to go back to simpler times. Before his parents’ divorce and the onset of his brother’s Schizophrenia. But when he returns to his hometown, things feel off. After a series of strange occurrences, Jacob fears his new house is haunted or worse, yet he is losing his mind.
To his surprise, Jacob discovers a mysterious teenage runaway, Sanctuary Daniels, living in the house. She reveals she has been kept by a figure known only as Mother, in a place where downstairs children are languishing prisoners, and upstairs children do Mother’s bidding.
Jacob’s investigation into Sanctuary’s allegations, along with their budding romance, are cut short when she is reclaimed by evil beings. Beings who unleash terror upon Jacob and his family. Now he must journey to a real haunted house to save his first love and fight for his very life.
You know that feeling when you read the last sentence of an incredible book and you immediately want to read the book again because you’re not ready to leave the world? That’s what happened when I finished The Stars Forgot Us by R.J. Garcia. What an incredible read.
Atmospheric is probably the best way to describe this book. I was drawn in by the writing. The first sentence grabbed my attention and the book never let go after that. It was suspenseful but also heartwarming and takes you by surprise all the way through.
Twisty and unpredictable with characters who feel like people you know. I definitely feel like the less you know when you read this, the better, so I’m keeping my details vague but just know, if you decide to read this, I don’t think you’ll put it down until you finish.
It’s books like this where I wish I could give more than 5 stars. Highly recommended!!

R.J. Garcia is a wife, and proud mom of two smart kids. She earned her MSW and worked with foster children and as a school social worker. Writing has been her other great love. She has been writing short stories for as long as she can remember. To her amazement, those short stories became novels!
