"Make Granda well," Elinor wishes. She waits and waits for her wish to come
true. Then, one morning, she receives a postcard—from a shooting star! Instead of
granting her wish, however, the star tells her not to wait for miracles from shooting stars anymore. Outraged, Elinor sets out to change the shooting stars’ minds, embarking on an adventure that leads her to the far reaches of outer space. Can she convince the stars that granting wishes is their most important job of all?

 

This imaginative picture book from debut author Nayoung Jin reminds us just how important hopes and dreams can be.
