I Have a Friend on Jupiter, by Celine Rose Mariotti (5 Star Review)

You may have read my recent interview with author Celine Rose Mariotti. Since then I have had the privilege of reading her book, I Have a Friend on Jupiter, and I have to say that it’s well worth a read.

I was pleasantly surprised at the way it indirectly shows children that being different is okay.

The author’s style is unique and not one that I have come across before, which makes a welcome change. The book is aimed at children and teens and moves at a brisk pace so as to hold the reader’s attention.

The language used was easy to understand and flowed well. The enthusiasm of the main characters was hard to miss and lent a powerful series of emotions to the author’s work. I honestly felt like a kid again while reading this, experiencing that same child like sense of wonder that we often lose as we grow up.

I would like to personally thank Celine Rose Mariotti for taking me back to my childhood.
This is a fascinating read that I would recommend for all lovers of Sci-Fi and Fantasy, regardless of age.

Rated 5 stars.

Born in 1993, British writer Daccari Buchelli spends his time focusing on his favourite genre, Fantasy. Having developed an early love of literature, he became determined to create his own magical wonderlands for fellow readers to explore. He spent his teenage years working on several Fantasy novellas, which he has yet to release to the general public.

He has since released the first book in a new Fantasy series, which revolves around young royals and the elemental magic that they possess. As an active member of the LGBT+ community, Mr Buchelli hopes to help reduce intolerance and bullying by promoting acceptance and understanding of those different to ourselves.
