Winner of the ALA Schneider Family Award, Wendy Mass has had her fiction for young readers honored with a Junior Library Guild Selection and a Book Sense Children’s Pick. Every Soul a Star is the tale of an extra-ordinary occurrence related through three very different perspectives. Unlike the thousands converging at Moon Shadow to witness a total solar eclipse, Ally calls the isolated campground home. Bree shields herself in a cloak of good looks and popularity, but there is something within her no one suspects. And Jack, overweight and socially inept, finds himself on the verge of startling possibility.

    " Very good book. I loved every moment of it. I COULD NOT put it down. One of my BFFs thought it was boring but I don't think she reads a lot. Whereas I have a very large bookshelf at the foot of my bed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janice | 1/26/2013

    " This was a top seller at our school's book fair, so I bought it. It is simple sweet read but definitely for the older set (10-11ish) and more likely to appeal to girls than boys. I can't see my son reading this but in a few years, I would recommend it to my daughter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 7/2/2012

    " So touching... :) Loved this book & want more! At the end (view spoiler)[Wendy Mass wrote something about the three of them meeting up another time, well she should write a second book, about that. I would love that!! (hide spoiler)] "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Savannah | 10/17/2011

    " The book was okay, but it took a while to get the fun part that the whole book is centered around. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kyra | 9/1/2011

    " Every Soul A Star is deep and personal. Reading from other characters' perspective in this book in particular makes it unique. Other books that do that like The Kane Chronicles don't pull it off the way Every Soul A Star does. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alitor nonaurbeeswax | 8/22/2011

    " great coming of age book! loved every minute. the start sets the stage for an exciting and heartwarming conclusion. must read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katrina | 6/24/2011

    " I liked this book, but it wasn't a page turner for me. It was clean and creative, each chapter is from a different point of view (one of three). I would probably recommend it, especially if you're about 12 years old. "

    " This was an interesting book! I liked how Wendy Mass put all the perspectives of the characters. But sometimes, I lost interest on certain parts. Other than that, I enjoyed it! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roxanne | 5/1/2011

    " Wendy Mass is awesome! Three different characters come together at a campground to see a Solar eclipse. They don't expect to meet new friends, but they do, and learn a lot about friendship in the process. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 4/28/2011

    " A phenomenal account of three unique kids and how their paths cross, leaving each other changed forever. (I should like to visit Moon Shadow someday if it did exist...) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trinity | 4/14/2011

    " Incredibly cute book about 3 unlikely people becoming friends leading up to the night of an eclipse. Very inspiring and amazingly written. You should definitely read this if you have the chance :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renee | 4/12/2011

    " I did like the alternating voices and the detail to astronomy. Well done there...good book really but I'm an action fan and this was character development so I didn't give it a higher rating because of that. However, I can recommend it to my 6th & 7th graders, no problem. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaymi | 4/7/2011

    " I thought it was really neat to see the way the three teens saw the story in their perspective and it is really creative how they all meet. I would have never thought of that!
