BOOK REVIEW: Connect the Stars by Marisa de los Santos and David Teague



BLURB:

From Saving Lucas Biggs authors Marisa de los Santos and David Teague comes another heartwarming middle grade adventure about two misfits who discover the importance of just being themselves.

When thirteen-year-olds Aaron and Audrey meet at a wilderness camp in the desert, they think their quirks are enough to prevent them from ever having friends. But as they trek through the challenging and unforgiving landscape, they learn that they each have what it takes to make the other whole. 

Luminous and clever, Connect the Stars has Marisa de los Santos and David Teague’s trademark beautiful prose, delicate humor, swooping emotions, and keen middle grade friendships. This novel takes on the hefty topics of the day—bullying, understanding where you fit in, and learning to live with physical and mental challenges—all in a joyous adventure kids will love!

REVIEW BY: Michaela, age 11 years, 3 months

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book is amazing and sad at the same time. Older kids should read this! This book made me laugh, cry and fill with joy when I saw what 4 different, but awesome kids could do. 

My favorite character is Kate and my favorite part is when they go on the first course at the camp. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 11-13. 

This book's publishing date is September 22, 2015.
