This story about stargazing is told with such careful attention to detail. It's really an impressive piece of work, similar in style to Owl Moon or Barn Savers or even Night Tree in that it is as much a story of parental bonding as it is a story about stargazing. The explanation at the end about meteors, meteorites, and meteoroids is succinct, yet engaging. Overall, this is a solid book, well worth the read.

Sweet story of a girl watching meteors with her dad in the middle of the night. Loved the science gently woven in.
