    1. A beautiful, truthful, painful book. I was in high school when I read this and felt like I just couldn't bear it. Constance, I'm sad about Rosellen and Andy, but I'm saddest about Johnny.

    2. I love this Beany Malone series. In fact I am planning on ordering the whole collection to give my daughter on her 16th birthday. For lovers of local history: the Malones "lived" in the Denver of the 1940's-60's Denver. There are numerous references to real places, sometimes with a slightly altered name. In this one Adair and Martie go to the inauguration of the Air Force Academy; Beany visits her Beau at Berkeley base; in another she goes dancing at the Acacia Gardens (i.e. the old Elitch's Gar [...]

    3. One of my favorites of the Beany books. Rosellen (who coincidentally has the same name as my sister-in-law, the only real person I've ever met with that name)develops into a very real character and her story is genuinely touching and tragic.I I liked the way Weber showed several of the characters responding to her personality and making changes in their own lives because of it.Andy's reaction to events is realistic and Beany's rather clueless response is very typically Beany. The Johnny/Garnet s [...]

    4. I've always loved this author's talent for coming up with great titles. This is her best.A Bright Star Falls is powerful book that deals with tragic circumstances in unsentimental ways. Personally, it's my favorite book in the Beany Malone series. I do think Johnny acts like a royal ass in this book, and can't help but wonder at what the Malone family would have thought if Beany had behaved in this fashion.

    5. This book deals with more serious subject matter than previous ‘Beany’ offerings. Perhaps the heavier plot and more grown-up characters are what made it difficult for me to put down. It is sad, though, and at times downright depressing! Rosellen’s death definitely found me teary-eyed (even though a few books back I remember thinking that it seemed like her death was being foreshadowed). I found it interesting that Garnet Storm was introduced as one of the few (perhaps even the first?) char [...]

    6. I believe the first time I ever cried over a book was when one of the main characters died in this one (see, I'm avoiding spoilers).

    7. This was a tough one to read (re-read). I didn't really remember it from the first time I read the series as a teen - maybe I missed it. But it was well done and respectful of the characters.

    8. Another one of the Beany Malone books, probably the saddest one. I felt kind of guilty because I wasn't terribly upset when Rosellen dies (I saw it coming from the beginning of the book, the title helped too). The part where Beany tries to stop Andy from leaving, I was totally thinking the same way Beany was and felt just like Beany when her dad explains she was wrong in doing so. Interesting book, neither my favorite nor my least favorite of the series.
