From the Publisher
Best Books 2004 Awarded to the Starlight Series ~Author captures hearts of Americas youth, relating to todays real-life moral dilemmas: heartache, triumph, losses and joy combine to illustrate that through perseverance one can make dreams come true.
Growing up in America today is not easy. Children face life-changing issues and are required to adjust to constant changes. Single and displaced parenting. New marriages. New families. Adoption. Peer-pressure. Teenage angst. Racism. Heartache. Triumph. Loss. Joy. Love. Suspense for what life will bring them. The desire to persevere to see their own dreams come true. Weaving its story into this fabric of daily life comes the highly acclaimed Starlight Series that young teens and those that care about them directly relate to and identify with. Proclaimed by readers of all ages as stories they cannot put down, these books have a positive impact, cultivating a love for reading and instilling important ideals.
Although set in the world of horse lore, Miranda and Starlight, the first of the series, was touted by Writers Notes Awards panelists as "more than a mere horse story. It is a journey of courage and consequences." The reviewer added, "My own children will read this story." Starlight Shines for Miranda, which is book five of the series, was honoured with Best Books 2004 for Young Adults award, by USA Book News, to the delight of our young readers.
Miranda Stevens, age ten in the first book, encounters a number of adventures, quandaries and conflicts, most brought on by her impulsive and compassionate nature. As a teenager in book six, Miranda faces many of the conflicts that confront adolescents today. She forms lasting friendships, endures pain and sorrow, experiences triumph and joy, learns valuable life lessons, and faces a promising future, illustrating that through perseverance one can make dreams come true.
Raven Publishing, Inc. is graced by Janet Muirhead Hill's heartfelt dedication to children's literature. To echo the sentiments of distinguished review source, Children's Bookwatch, we are fortunate to have "one of the truly skilled storytellers writing for young readers today."

Laurie's cousin, Rose Marie, comes to live with Laurie's family for awhile. Rose Marie is seventeen. She is always in trouble, wears dark make up, smokes, and hangs out with a bad crowd. Envious and jealous of Miranda, Rose Marie begins turning all the kids against Miranda, including her closest. No one seems to like Miranda anymore ... and then Starlight disappears!
***** This is an excellent ending to the series. Throughout the books, Miranda has grown up and matured, making complicated decisions as she went. She shows that no matter how bad things become, one must do the right thing and hope for the best. Eventually, events will come together.
In my opinion, this series will attract more than just the girls who love horses. Miranda is a great role model. She is so realistic that kids cannot help but relate to Miranda and her problems. At the same time, readers can follow Miranda during all her adventures. Outstanding! *****
