Why You’ll Love this book


I think readers will love this book because Alexandra is a relatable character, but gets swept up into this otherworldly adventure, which is something I think a lot of us dream about.  The love interest, Ronan, is absolutely head-over-heels for Alexandra, but feels this incredible guilt for thrusting her into an intergalactic feud. He also doesn’t want to put pressure on her to enter a relationship, but is quite earnest about being whatever it is she might need—a protector, a listening ear, a friend, more than a friend….  While this is a fast-paced adventure story, I think there are scenes that are thought-provoking and show a lot of heart.


About X. Culletto

Xela is a working mother of three, living in the Utah. She teaches secondary English and after talking to students for years about following their dreams and doing whatever it takes to achieve them, she decided to take her own advice and complete her lifelong goal of writing a novel. The idea of life on other planets has always fascinated her, and she wondered what they would think of humanity, which is what spawned the idea for the plot of "Understanding the Stars". When she’s not playing with her kids, or sorting through the endless laundry, you'll find her watching The Walking Dead, horseback riding, or working on her next book.
