Description

From Saving Lucas Biggs authors Marisa de los Santos and David Teague comes a heartwarming middle grade adventure about two misfits discovering the importance of just being themselves.

When thirteen-year-olds Aaron and Audrey meet at a wilderness camp in the desert, they think their quirks are enough to prevent them from ever having friends. But as they trek through the challenging and unforgiving landscape, they learn that they each have what it takes to make the other whole.

Luminous and clever, Connect the Stars takes on some hefty topics of the day-bullying, understanding where you fit in, and learning to live with physical and mental challenges-all in a joyous adventure kids will love!

Vivid and memorable, SAVING LUCAS BIGGS casts a captivating spell that will keep you turning pages. A heartfelt yarn of family, friendship, and homespun time-travel magic." -- Ingrid Law, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of SAVVY Praise for SAVING LUCAS BIGGS: "A riveting time-travel adventure. Strong storytelling, suspense, lyrical writing, high drama, weighty matters made accessible and a bit of humor add up to a terrific and heartwarming read." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review) Praise for SAVING LUCAS BIGGS: "The authors weave a tale of justice and family bonds with threads of historical fiction accented with the fantastical physics of time travel." -- School Library Journal (starred review) Praise for SAVING LUCAS BIGGS: "De los Santos and Teague craft a gentle, quiet sci-fi story where the focus is...love, nonviolence, and social justice. Give this one to readers who like stories about family, doing the right thing, and standing up to those who don't." -- Booklist Praise for SAVING LUCAS BIGGS: "The authors' graceful use of language and fearless exploration of a more spiritual dimension simultaneously comfort and challenge readers, encouraging deep thoughts.
