Wish on All the Stars

Reviewed by:

Prolific author Lisa Schroeder has written a sequel to “See You on a Starry Night” that can be read as a standalone, continuing pre-teen Juliet’s story. Juliet is an official member of the Starry Beach Club, along with Emma and Carmen, a club created to grant wishes around their town. When the local beloved book mobile is slated to be shut down, the imaginative girls look for ways to save it, settling on a craft fair to raise the necessary funds. Subplots of Juliet’s struggle with her parent’s divorce and her lack of confidence in her artwork, as well as Carmen’s fear of her mother being deported, add depth to this thought-provoking story. Each chapter ends with a list of Juliet’s thoughts and ideas that are intriguing and add an interesting element. This heart-warming story about three pre-teen friends trying to make the world a better place will make this an enjoyable read for Diviosion II and emerging middle school readers.
