I was thoroughly entertained with her debut novel, Interrupted. She continues to enthrall her readers with Chasing Jupiter as it delivered a wide range of emotions. In particular, Scarlett really knows emotions as she’s able to communicate with her brother Cliff in a way that she can understand his flukes unlike the others in his life. Her love for her brother is unconditional and that makes her character so lovable. Although it may seem like it is too much pressure from carrying so much responsibility within her family, she’s able to keep her head straight and focused. Even when tragedy strikes and throws her off, she’s able to reassess life and get her composure back together.
Author Rachel’s writing style is remarkable and manages to capture all of the emotions that Scarlett goes through in her young life. The texts are richly descriptive that readers are given a full view of the importance of fulfilling Frank’s wish for a rocket to Jupiter. The twist that is revealed is like getting the rug pulled off right under your feet. Chasing Jupiter is powerful story about accepting, detriment, heartbreaks, and hope. It is the story about the importance of family and the up and downs it goes through.
