Item description for Bite the Stars by Eliza Clark...
Bite the Stars marks the U.S. debut of the gifted Canadian author, Eliza Clark. Written with cinematic flair and luminous intensity, Bite the Stars opens with a tornado that whips into motion the whirlwind events of a young woman's life.
Grace Larson tells the gripping story of the storm that caused her to go into labor prematurely and give birth to Cole, who becomes as menacing and dangerous as the force of nature out of which he was born.
While her son is on the run from the law, ravaging his own path of wild destruction, Grace reads books and studies facts of nature, the chemistry of fireflies, blazing trails of dying comets, ultraviolet visions of butterflies, looking for clues to her son's nature. She searches her memory for events in their past to figure out why Cole is the way he is, where nurture ends and nature rules. Bite the Stars is a spellbinding novel told from the eye of the storm.

I loved this book! Nov 20, 2002
In BITE THE STARS, Eliza Clark draws her characters with bold strokes. Grace and her son, Cole, could be members of your own family, or perhaps the neighbors down the street. Though they don't speak of it, you know they've got troubles, and things don't seem to be getting any better. It would be easy to turn your back on them, tell yourself they're not worth the effort. But take a good look, because by knowing Grace you'll feel better about yourself. And maybe the next time you see her you'll stop and say hello.
Poignant, gut-wrenching, and compellingly thoughtful Nov 15, 2002
Canadian author Eliza Clark's Bite the Stars is a gripping and emotional novel about Grace Larson, the mother of a brutal and violent criminal. Forced into premature labor by the violence of a tornado, Grace finds herself unable to cope with or understand her son Cole, a child who grows up to be as destructive as nature at its worst. As Grace watches her son's trail of destruction, she looks for answers in nature itself. Bite The Stars is recommended to a serious readership as being a poignant, gut-wrenching, compellingly thoughtful and thought-provoking narrative that will not soon be forgotten.
