A complex, emotional journey for every reader, To the Sun, Moon, and Stars reads as unsent letters meant to be sent to the skies and beyond, and diary entries stored and locked in cages we all keep in our hearts.
Cariza's poetic storytelling delves into the complexity of dealing with different waves of emotions, ranging from anxiety, love, hope, and loss. In the end, Cariza teaches us all that there is beauty and light even in the darkest corners that exist in our lives. Most of all, she tells us that we are not alone.
To the Sun, Moon, and Stars is Cariza's first book.
"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
