I love Christopher Pike. I have been reading his books since I was 11 or 12 and I am almost 30 now. His books are amazing, filled with colorful characters, unique settings and amazing stories. And The Starlight Crystal is no exception.
It's probably my most favorite Pike book and it's one of his least well-known. The story is not a typical Pike story and the blurb on the back does not do it justice. Nor does the cover.
Paige Christian is an 18 year old girl who has just fallen in love for the first time. The problem is that Paige is leaving for an expedition with her father in about a week. To the passengers of the ship, only a year will have passed as they travel, but on earth, 200 years will have passed and Paige's love, Tem, will be gone. Paige and Tem vow to love each other forever, but how can their love truly last when Tem will be gone so quickly?
This book is truly a work of art. I cried when I read this book and I felt Paige's pain. If you have ever been desperately in love, then you will understand the feelings conveyed in this story.
This may be a Young Adult book, but I think anyone would enjoy this novel, so steal from your kids for a few hours or days, and get to meet Christopher Pike through one of his greatest novels.
