Every Soul A Star by Wendy Mass is a riveting piece of literature written in three different perspectives by three different teenagers, who all came together by a spectacular event of a solar eclipse. We first have Ally, a free-spirited girl, who treasures the little things and has lived her whole life at the Moon Shadow Campground. Then is Bree, a typical suburban teenager whose lifestyle is abruptly taken to a new turn and refuses to accept the new changes she has to face. Last but not least, Jack is a socially awkward nerd who learns more about self-confidence throughout his experiences at camp. Each character gets a chapter, while taking turns, to describe about their feelings, their actions, and how it personally affects them in a first-person view. Wendy Mass uses this unique format to create her own writing style. Even with the unusual chapter set-up, the plot still flows smoothly. It is almost like connecting the dots. You follow one character’s story, and connect it to another person’s. In my opinion, having three teenagers with conflicting personalities help gives a deeper understanding of the story because of just having one main character’s beliefs being stated and having to follow along, we have three beliefs brought up and we can merge or select the beliefs as we choose. The message that I got from this book: We are all stars, something great and different from everyone else. Wendy Mass uses seemingly real teenagers, to spin a tale that have affected many, including me.
