What a magical story! Chasing falling stars, magical stardust, a ladder to the stars & cloud people all in one fantastical story of young girl’s adventure to save her dying grandmother.
Julia is a 4th grader whose most favorite person in the world, her grandmother, Grammu, is dying from the invisible disease. The only thing that can save her is a falling star. But catching one isn’t easy. Only one person in the history of their small town has ever actually caught a falling star, but Julia is certain that she can catch one to save Grammu. When things don’t quite go as planned, Julia embarks on a journey to find the legendary ladder to the stars & has several interesting adventures along the way.
I normally don’t review children’s books, but The Healing Star stood out to me as a unique & magical story dealing with childhood adventure, disappointment & loss. I highly recommend this to young readers in 3rd-5th grade age range & is definitely a great story to be read to younger kids.
