Lisa Schroeder release days are major events for me. I love a lot of authors but I can't think of many that (a) have a 100% success rate for me and (b) will always leave me in a much better headspace than when I started the book. It's not that her books are fluffy, because they aren't. They deal with grief and loss and heartbreak; they don't pretend the world is better than it is. In this one, we learn that Carmen's family is in very real danger because her mom could be deported, leaving Carmen ...more

As a Middle School Librarian, I think that this book is a great story for students to read and realize that they are
never too young to make a difference. It is a follow-up to the book See You on a Starry Night, but it can definitely be read as a stand alone. Emma, Carmen, and Juliet created the Starry Beach Club to grant wishes around town. I love how they choose the local Bookmobile to save! Juliet’s struggle with her parents divorce and Carmen’s fear of her mom being deported give depth to th

This is the story of three friends who want to help save the bookmobile in their town. It's also the story of how two girls must figure out how to be the best ally they can be for their friend, who is afraid her mother might be deported. It's a follow-up to the first novel, SEE YOU ON A STARRY NIGHT, but can be read on its own.

Here's what some teachers and librarians have to say:

"Wish On All The Stars is a heartwarming story of three girls trying to make their world a better place. The girls are

*Review is of an advanced reader copy

Having read the first installment in what is, as evidenced by the final page of this novel, set to become a preteen series, I decided to read Wish on All the Stars (that and the San Diego setting.) Although See You on a Starry Night was a decent if a bit saccharine story, this one was not a favorite. It felt as though the author tried to cover too much. The characters, particularly Juliet, the titular character, were far too wholesome and goody-goody to be be

Wish on All the Stars is the follow-up to Lisa Schroeder's title, See You on a Starry Night. This novel continues the story of the Starry Beach Club with its quest to save the nearby bookmobile. Juliet, Emma and Carmen are determined to keep the local tourist attraction around before it is replaced by a hot dog stand.

This novel is short (approx. 150 pages) but that doesn't dilute its messages of friendship, loyalty and new beginnings. Schroeder always does a wonderful job of teaching kids to "j

I did not read the first one, so I can definitely say that this is a stand alone book. I appreciated that the characters were in middle school and not younger. The ARC of this book is around 200 pages, with very reader friendly formatting and a sweet story mixed with some bigger social issues. I, like the main character and so many of my students, switched back and forth between houses after my parents divorced so I really appreciated this reality being portrayed in the book. The main story line ...more

I loved this story and wish more middle grades books like this were around when I was this age. So many great messages for middle grade girls - making new friends, keeping old friends, learning how to help others, dealing with change. Most importantly - it dealt with issues many of our students might be dealing with - divorce, worrying about parents being deported, standing up for what you believe in. This was a sequel that stands well on its own but now I’m intrigued to read the first one. Can’ ...more

I had the opportunity to read an ARC of this sweet story before publication as part of the #LitReviewCrew group. I will definitely be purchasing my own copy for my classroom to add to my Lisa Schroeder collection of books. I think my middle school students will appreciate this story about friendship, family, and finding the courage to help others even when things seem difficult. I like how each chapter ends with a list of thoughts, which is a nice element to the story.
