      Wendy Mass has a particular style that I think people either get or not I have to say some of the time I don t get into her books, but I can honestly say I was happy that I read this one.Ally, Bree, and Jack are all very different and under noraml circumstances would never meet, but one event will bring them all together, the solar eclipse This event will be witnessed at the Moon Shadow which is Ally s home Bree is being dragged there by force, who wants to commune with the stars anyhow Jack is [...]

      I read this book a very long time ago, and I have read it several times since Why Because the story is just adorable and it just gives me that warm fuzzy feeling on the inside I read it first in 4th grade, and I believe I have read it every year since Like, a self deemed classic of sorts, I m not quite sure And every time I clear out my bookshelves to make room for new books, this is one of the few that has stayed around through all of the years.Why The characters The characters make you care ab [...]

    3. Jacqueline on said:

      Wow This was a great book On reflection, it was not a great book for the usual reasons The plot was pretty typical for the young adult market The characters, although varied and somewhat three dimensional, were still stereotypes The theme was the usual, again especially for young adult books The parent child interactions were for the most part overbearing, and the teens were definitely lacking in power in their day to day lives Family members were depicted working against each other instead of t [...]

      Every Soul a Star is about three teenagers who are brought together by an eclipse during the summer This eclipse changes each of their lives forever The story begins with Ally, who is a homeschooled girl that has never truly experienced civilazation Then the point of view switches to Bree, a true prep thats mantra is to be beautiful she wants to be a model when she grows up Then, it switches to Jack, who is a slightly overweight and somewhat awkward guy that failed his science class It continues [...]

      Natural phenomenon lend themselves to children s literature Picture books, for example, are filled with fireflies, rainbows, and shooting stars Then the child readers get a little older and the phenomena get complex The death of the atom inSmiles to Go or the frozen lake of melted radioactive sand inThe Green Glass Sea okay, so maybe that one s not so natural And I m sure, I am sure, that a novel has been written with an eclipse at its climax Odds are that such a book would be a fantasy novel I [...]

    6. Caren on said:

      I enjoyed this book so much The book s characters are mostly middle school age with a few younger siblings thrown in , which, as we all know, is a time fraught with many changes How each character traverses this part of their journey is part of why the book is interesting The real reason I picked this book up though is because the story centers on preparation for viewing a solar eclipse The author has really done her homework I learned many tantalizing tidbits about astronomy in general and abou [...]

      ACK THIS BOOK IS SO CUTE And the characters are adorable, I WANT TO SQUISH THEM ALL squish If you haven t read this one, I highly suggest that you do This book revolves around three pre teens Ally, Bree, and Jack who all have different personalities each are different and unique and very adorable Coincidentally, they all end up in the Moon Shadow Campground to see the upcoming solar eclipse, and during their stay at the campground, the three of them form friendships and closure none of them obvi [...]

    8. Limau Nipis on said:

      Every Soul A Star is a simple but profound book for teenagers A simple story line, but I like it because I learned about stars gazing, moon shadows, etc In a nut shell, if you ever been bored about astronomy, why don t you give this book a try I find the book, even somehow similar to other young adult novels, somehow, it feels some sort of coming of age for these three important characters Ally, Bree and Jack.Because in Moon Shadow campground, their life will be intertwined with each other.And i [...]

      Love it 4.5 but it s just so sweet and relatable, it deserves the bump up This is such a solid young YA book The author did a great job mixing in the science within the story so it never felt boring and it never really stopped the pace of the book The main characters, Ally, Bree, and Jack, were very relatable and I enjoyed seeing their journey of discovering things about themselves The side characters were endearing as well Their situation is something everyone goes through and I love how the ki [...]

      Kierra Mandell Review Every Soul A Star by Wendy MassEvery Soul a Star is about three, totally different kids from unique environments, who are all gathered to see the eclipse of the century The story took place at a campground called Moon Shadow In each chapter of the book, there are different points of the story based on the three main characters Allie, Bree, and Jack The book tells about their 2 weeks at moon shadow, each of them with a different backstory of why they are there The main chara [...]

    12. Joy Joy on said:

      I really liked this book It was not that edible but it whetted my interest Three lives changed because of one event that brought them together This novel taught me that we should always put ourselves on the limelight because we would always be our own heroes.Bree Her transformation helped me understand that superficial beauty was really just that I must not categorize people and base my dealings with them through their labels Life is a package deal Thank you, Bree I learned with you.Jack His cha [...]

      From mrbramesblog Look don t ask me why I read Every Soul a Star, because I really don t know I bought a copy of it at the book fair back in December, simply because the cover was attractive, it was cheap, and it looked like something my students might want to read I took it back to my classroom and put in my library Whenever kids would come back to pick out a book, I d always steer them in the direction of this one, saying, Hey, doesn t this one look good After it sat on my shelf for a few mont [...]

      This is a good story of friendship and self discovery Three teens were unexpectedly changed as circumstances led them to Moon Shadow campground, the best place to view this year s eclipse Ally have lived here all her life and couldn t ask for How will she handle it when she finds out they are moving out Bree, a self centered model wannabe, received the shock of her life when her family decided to move away from civilization and be the next caretakers of the camp How will she adjust to this kind [...]

    15. Paul Sheckarski on said:

      This story leads to an absolutely mesmerizing climax I loved the multiple inversions of Bradbury s All Summer in a Day , too a deft touch.I suppose my only complaint and I m stretching here is that if I were to recommend this book to a young woman like Bree in an effort to get her to appreciate science or to encourage her to nurture her inner geek then my effort would seem very transparent to that young reader because Bree herself, insofar as she is a mouthpiece for the author s inner geek, is t [...]

      Every soul star is about three kids named Jack, Bree, and Ally Jack is a character that is laid back and likes to play a lot of video games you could also say he s lazy Bree is the popular one and is so beautiful and knows she wants to be a model when she growls up Ally is the sweet and simple girl and she enjoys looking at the stars and enjoys life in general In the summer they are all going to Moon Shadow which is a summer camp, to see an eclipse of the sun It turns out that, that s not all th [...]

      Ally lives at a campground She does not want to move to the city The stars can t be seen there, and she s been searching for the Messier Objects, which can hardly be seen from where she lives Bree has a life, and she likes it the way it is As far as she s concerned, school is only there for popular people like her to practice looking good so they can be models someday.Jack is a misfit with a talent for art He failed science, and is looking for any excuse to get out of summer school.They get brou [...]

      I read this on the recommendation of my 10 yr old who told me I would love it It was a great young adult novel and had really good messages about being true to yourself, the importance of family, and the coolness of science I was pleased that it touched my daughter and now we have another book to discuss and share together I only gave it 3 stars but if I were 10 yrs old I might have given it 4 or 5

    20. Etomaro on said:

      This book was really interesting from the beginning Lots of books lose my attention really fast, but this book kept my attention without being over action filled and pointless I would recommend this book to others.

    21. Julia on said:

      Psych I did not completely read this book I stopped a long time ago because it was too boring It might be catered to readers who enjoy slow moving plots and boring, predictable characters, but it wasn t my fav Maybe I ll read it again when I want something to immediately put me to sleep.

    22. Mallory Lyon on said:

      There is just something about this book that warms my heart I love how it is realistic fiction but yet tells you all these great facts I learned so much just by reading this book I think it shows the true meaning of love as in brother and sister love I highly recommend this book

      2.5 stars Review to come UPDATED 6 25 2017I really wanted to like this book, since I ve read a couple of Wendy Mass s books and really enjoyed them Not to mention the cover is gorgeous And I thought I was going to, when a line on the first page said, you just have to read the right books, and it s all there When you re homeschooled, you have a lot of books YESSSSSS Homeschooled characters are few and far between, and I, a homeschooler, am always happy when I stumble across one that s well repres [...]

      ABUSE AND SEVERE NEGLECT ALERT This book pushed so many of my own personal buttons, I struggled with near chronic impulses to choke the negligent, self centered, insensitive parents scattered throughout it, to death, while reading it It s tough to know just how oblivious the author truly is on the topic of radical, childhood moves, especially as regards the health and positive impacts of the developmental stages of adolescence vs whether she already fully understands these concepts and wanted to [...]

      This is a fun middle grade read I d read it once before, back in 2012 and yes, I remember what year it was because this is the book that first made me aware of the solar eclipse that s coming up in a few weeks and I remember thinking, how am I going to wait 5 years for this In a lot of ways, it s a very stereotypical coming of age ish story There s the popular girl the slightly overweight shy kid the weird, but lovable astronomy nerd her super attractive best guy friend who has recently discover [...]
