What a magical story! Chasing falling stars, magical stardust, a ladder to the stars & cloud people all in one fantastical story of young girl's adventure to save her dying grandmother.

This was a very special book to read. MY husband has Alzheimer's and he now comprehends at about a 4th grade level. We read a couple chapters a day and I would follow up with questions about the story.For a child it builds suspense and allows them to imagine what the characters look like.Kudos to the Author for such a magical tale.

My girls and I enjoyed this book. I asked them what their favorite thing was about it, and I don’t want to give spoilers, so I will paraphrase. They liked the relationship Julia had with her grandma, and that she cared so much about her grandma, even enough to risk her own life. They also liked that there was hope, even through the sad parts of the book. A great read for us all.

Amazing book!

This was a masterpiece! A.Kidd really knows how to write in an engaging and poetic manner. You could connect with the main character and the imagery was perfect. I couldn't put the Healing Star down!
