Family Book Club: "The Magic in Changing Your Stars" by Leah Henderson 
Leah Henderson

Welcome to Family Book Club! This is an exciting club for families who love to read and is appropriate for ages 8-15. The books chosen are always within the third to sixth grade level but both younger and older kids have enjoyed them! If your child is younger, I encourage the family to read the book aloud together or listen to the audiobook (if available)!

This month we are reading "The Magic in Changing Your Stars" by Leah Henderson. Ailey loves to dance but struggles with fears such as stage fright. With a magical pair of tap shoes, Ailey travels back in time and meets his grandfather and together they help each other build confidence. However, now that Ailey has changed the past, can he get home again to the present? Genre: FANTASY.

Chapters 1 (If I Only Had a Brain) – 14 (A Deal is a Deal is a Deal) 
1. Have you ever tried out for a school performance?
2. Ailey said he wasn’t scared but, when up on stage, forgot everything he had practiced. What do you think happened?
3. Have you ever failed at something like Ailey did at the audition?
4. Do you have a passion? Something you love to do, that you are good at?
5. If you could travel back in time, where would you want to go?
 
Next week read chapters 15 (Chicken’s Not My Name) – 29 (Spilling Truth)
