Description

Katherine Paterson, author of Newbery Medal winners Bridge to Terabithia and Jacob Have I Loved, again displays her storytelling talent in this powerful novel. Eleven-year-old Angel must play the adult when she and her brother are abandoned at their great-grandmother's house and the old lady proves incapable of caring for them. An emotional tale, this drama teaches the age-old lesson that every person can stand tall when the world lets them down.

Professional reviews

"Newbery Award-winning author Paterson writes a powerful story with some adult themes. Fans of The Bridge to Terabithia will find another plucky and likable heroine. When Angel's mother dumps her and her 8-year-old brother on the doorstep of a great grandmother in the backwoods of Vermont, we're not surprised. Fortunately, Angel soon meets the "Star man," with his telescope and endless knowledge of the heavens, along with a wonderful librarian who knows that the answer to almost everything is in a book somewhere. Soon Angel begins to see possibilities for a life beyond the small, scary one she's known. High praise to Alyssa Bresnahan, who is perfect for this material. Turning in a memorable performance, she injects a subtle sweetness and a gentle lilt that carry us through some truly grim moments. Bravo. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
