Shooting Star is part of the Early Readers Gold Band from Maverick Books. This amazing tale is very modern and up-to-date in its story of Stella who is different from everyone else but not for the obvious reason of being in a wheelchair. She is actually a superhero who has the ability to fly! Stella’s alter-ego is Shooting Star; only her parents know her secret.
One day Stella finds herself faced with an impossible choice. Can she save the day without revealing her secret or will she be unmasked forever?
8 year-old Roxie had this to say about Shooting Star:
There was a girl named Stella who couldn’t walk but she could fly! She was a superhero! I really liked this book because Stella was just a normal girl, then she turned in to Shooting Star. She saved the day and everyone was happy. I think everyone should read this book because it was just so good!
