It is my solemn wish that everyone pick up a copy of Girl Made of Stars. It's the sort of story that hurts to read sometimes, but ultimately leaves you full of hope. This novel is the perfect example of literature for young people that can and will give almost anyone a bit of perspective and birth or nurture compassion within them. This book is important. This book is compulsively readable and full of beauty. This book should be your next read.
Girl Made of Stars by Ashley Herring Blake ($17.99*, Houghton Mifflin), recommended by Books & Books, Coral Gables, FL.
