Product description

Could that bright star be Aniyah’s lost mum? She has to follow it to know… On her tenth birthday, Aniyah makes a wish: not for herself, but for her mother. And on that same day, Aniyah and her brother are rushed out of school and driven far away to a new life in foster care. Where is their mum? Nobody knows. But Aniyah is sure of one thing: Mum isn’t really gone. People with the brightest hearts never truly leave. They become stars. So when a strange new star is spotted in the sky, Aniyah is sure it’s her mum. So she sets off on a mission which involves breaking into the Royal Observatory in London, a gang of squirrels, and the biggest star in Hollywood…

  • By the author of The Boy at the Back of the Class
  • A look at domestic violence through a child’s eyes
  • Perfectly captures Aniyah’s innocence and wonder
  • Celebrates the power of love, hope and resilience
  • Onjali Rauf won the 2019 Waterstones Book Prize
