Title: A Handful of Stars
Author: Cynthia Lord
Lexile Level: 690
Pages: 184
Recommendations and Comments: A Handful of Stars is the story of Lily and Salma. As unlikely as their friendship should be -- Lily lives in town and Salma is part of a migrant family -- it grows and blossoms over the summer. The two meet each other when Lily’s blind dog runs away. Salma and Lily have a common interest in painting, and they spend the afternoons painting bee houses. This was a great story about friendship and how sometimes what we think we want isn’t what we need.
