I had a bit of trouble with the basic premise, that energetic, upbeat, Dinah was upset by the idea that the sun would burn out in billions of years. Besides that, the story was mostly about relationships, the ups and downs of a 7th grade boyfriend, and Dinah's friendship with an 83 year old neighbor. That part was nicely told. 29,419 words, level 5.3, 5.0 ar points
Dinah doesn't think life is worth living because the sun is going to explode in 5 billion years anyway. Life, school, boyfriend, growing up. (see also other "Dinah" books).
