"Every single piece in To the Sun, Moon, and Stars spoke something for itself. You will find both thunderstorms and warm cups of coffee in this book, but its consistent voice and style make it cohesive, the repeating themes throughout the sections comforting. I am a sucker for aesthetics in any form, and Cariza's words cater to that particular need of mine. It's beautiful, quintessentially, her words and the pictures they paint, without compromising the substance of her stories and confessions. I don't know if she did it on purpose, but I also like that there seems to be a mention of various times throughout the day -- quiet sunrises, deep nights, vivid sunsets. I like that it can make you feel happy and sad at the same time. That it can make you feel hopeful, at the end." - Iris Consolacion
This book talks about holding on and letting go, of becoming and unbecoming, of struggling, yet still going, and finally, of one's self-journey on the road towards healing.
To the Sun, Moon, and Stars is Cariza's first book.
Lately, sunsets have been looking at
me with sad eyes; they seem to tell me
I’ve seen enough of them in a lifetime.
