debut fantasy star court

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up-Sheetal, days shy of her 17th birthday, is the child of a star mother and a human father, with whom she lives in an Indian American community in New Jersey. When her starfire accidentally injures her beloved father and lands him in the hospital, Sheetal embarks on a celestial journey with her best friend Minal to search for a star's blood to heal him and to find her mother, who returned to the skies years before. Thrust into a competition to determine the ruling house of the stars' court, Sheetal must quickly learn the traditions of this new world and race to secure the healing blood in time to save her father. Her quest becomes more complicated when she encounters her sweetheart, Dev, in the heavens. Sheetal is a teen heroine drawn with grace and authenticity who will ring true with young adult readers. VERDICT Thakrar's lyrical prose and imaginative story transport readers to a world tucked away in the limitless sky, a place of shining golden palaces and starsong.­Gillian D'Ambrosio, Rutgers Univ., NJα(c) Copyright 2011.
