A novel about three very different teenagers finding their place in the universe
12-year-old ALLY likes the simple things in life—labyrinths, stargazing, and comet hunting. Her home, the Moon Shadow Campground, is a part of who she is. She refuses to imagine it any other way.
13-year-old BREE is popular, gorgeous (everybody says so), and a future homecoming queen for sure. Bree wears her beauty like a suit of armor. But what is she trying to hide?
13-year-old JACK, overweight and awkward, is used to spending a lot of time alone. But when opportunity knocks, he finds himself in situations he never would have imagined.
If you've never had the chance to look at the rings of Saturn through a high-powered telescope, I highly recommend it. I loved learning about astronomy while researching this book and my goal was to bring the far reaches of the universe alive for the reader, too. Ally, Bree, and Jack are forever changed when they witness a total eclipse of the sun, considered to be nature's greatest miracle. I promise the book isn't all about science-stuff, but beware, you might learn something. 🙂
