Beetiful designed the book cover for When Stars Fall by exLyrical.
“It all began with a simple, harmless rumour. It became a fact, and then… Oh my, then came the lie that started this hellish downward spiral.”
Xavier Shaw endured half a year of a homophobic school environment, and when the summer break finally started, the boy was convinced everything would be better when the next year commenced. However, Xavier’s thoughts soon prove themselves nothing but wishful thinking.
Contemplating switching schools and beginning from scratch, the arrival of transfer student Ethan Deen, an uncertain rising sing-and-songwriter, completely tosses the idea out of the window. At first glance, Xavier is smitten with the boy, albeit, he’s convinced those feelings will never be mutual.
However, life is a complicated game and twists in the most unexpected of ways.
Follow the story of two troubled boys finding solace, tranquillity and so much more in one another.
Trigger Warning: bullying, depression & homophobia.
