Star-Crossed was a unique work that explored a bleak future for humanity with limited resources where humans are reliant on consuming a pill as a food substitute. The author, Pintip Dunn, diverged into the time old story of a young woman striving to step into her father's footsteps and assume her role as a leader for her people. Dunn's details and intricate plot transported readers into the threshold of science-fiction and wove a story that expanded on Darwinian themes where only the fittest and the elite class have access to the best means. The story was well executed and blended young adult fiction, romance, and sci-fi elements to comprise an altogether unique story.

In a world where nutrition can be transferred via a pill, and society is split into Eaters and Non-Eaters, seventeen-year-old Princess Vela has a grave dilemma. Her father, the king, is dying, and only a transplant of organs from a healthy Non-Eater boy will save him.
Vela is tasked with choosing a boy fit to die for the king, which is impossible enough. But then Carr, the boy she's loved all her life, emerges as the best candidate in the Bittersweet Trials. And he's determined to win, because by doing so, he can save the life of his Non-Eater sister.
Refusing to accept losing the boy she loves, Vela bends the rules and cheats. But when someone begins to sabotage the Trials, Vela must reevaluate her own integrity—and learn the true sacrifice of becoming a ruler.
