A Galaxy of Sea Stars
Izzy Mancini’s life had changed. She was living in a different neighborhood and she hadn’t seen her mother much this summer because she was working. Middle school was coming up and she didn’t know if the Sea Stars, a group made up of Izzy and her best friends, Piper and Zelda, were going to be separated. Also, her father’s friend and his family had just moved into the apartment above. They had a daughter around Izzy’s age, Sitara. Izzy was unsure of Sitara, she was different from the other kids, like how Sitara wore a scarf around her head called a hijab and she would only eat the food her mother made. Yes, she may be different, but maybe they could be friends.
I loved A Galaxy of Sea Stars. It is definitely one I would read repeatedly. I didn’t expect I would like the book as much as I did. My favorite character was definitely Sitara because of her outgoing personality. The book was a great story that showed friendship and that some things change but good things come from it. I would recommend A Galaxy of Sea Stars to girls in middle school because it is around the age of the main characters.
