The Stargazing Principle is a Young Adult contemporary novel with a hint of magical mystery. It centres on Caspar Bosch, a socially anxious 19-year-old studying Theoretical Physics in the Netherlands. Under strange circumstances, he is given a newspaper which reports that a girl from his university has been shot dead. A few days later, he meets this girl, Soraya, who is still very much alive. He quickly realises the article was a prediction. As he tries to use his knowledge of astronomy and physics to figure out how that is possible, he befriends Soraya to try and prevent her death.
