5 out 5

Told through the innocent voice of a child, this is a story that explores the subtle faces and endless impacts of domestic violence and celebrates the power of hope and resilience, from Onjali Rauf, the award-winning and best-selling author of The Boy at the Back of the Class.


A wonderful book that had me very close to tears about a girl whose mum has been murdered by her dad (though she doesn’t realise that) & races to Greenwich to have a star named after her. It has all the thrill of adventure & racing against time that The Boy at the Back of the Class had & great characterisation of the different foster children.
