Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev

All her world’s a stage.
Bertie Shakespeare Smith is not an actress, yet she lives in a theater.
She’s not an orphan, but she has no parents.
She knows every part, but she has no lines of her own.
That is, until now.
Enter Stage Right
NATE. Dashing pirate. Will do anything to protect Bertie.
COBWEB, MOTH, MUSTARD SEED, and PEASEBLOSSOM. Four tiny and incredibly annoying fairies. BERTIE’S sidekicks.
ARIEL. Seductive air spirit and Bertie’s weakness. The symbol of impending doom.
BERTIE. Our heroine.
Welcome to the Théâtre Illuminata, where the actors of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. They were born to play their parts, and are bound to the Théâtre by The Book—an ancient and magical tome of scripts. Bertie is not one of them, but they are her family—and she is about to lose them all and the only home she has ever known.
I was so excited to read this book! Because I love the theater and I love books so this was the perfect mix. Lisa did not disappoint!

The plot was very interesting and different combined with the funny dialog with different plot twists made this book a great anytime read.

The characters even though most were from other plays had different and interesting personalities and senses of humor. Bertie was a great heroine because she really wanted to stay and she was also very innocent.

I really enjoyed this book and I think that even though the book seems like mostly a girl book some guys would like it as well! I cannot wait for the rest of the books in this trilogy!
