Family Book Club Year in Review: "Stella By Starlight" by Sharon M. Draper
by Tess

Join Family Book Club on Monday, Dec. 28 at 5 p.m. as we meet to discuss our favorite book(s) from this year! Here is the final of my four favorite books from this year. 

"Stella by Starlight" by Sharon M. Draper

Stella By Starlight

Stella by Starlight is a historical fiction novel about Stella and her family who live in North Carolina in the 1930s. They experience hatred and racism from the KKK (Klu Klux Klan) but find strength and joy in their community. That's what I loved most about this book. I really enjoy stories about people who come together and support each other during difficult times. I love stories about people who fight for their rights and persevere in spite of obstacles.

Stella is a very endearing character. She struggles in writing class. While most kids pursue things that come easily for them, Stella has a passion for something she finds challenging. Stella loves to write and she works hard to improve. She is brave, sweet, and tenacious. Above all, she and her family have hope. 

I highly recommend this book. Hopefully, you will learn some history and be inspired by the characters, as I was. It is available in print and as an eAudiobook via HooplaDigital. Click here to place a hold or check it out.
