Summary

If you could get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for anything at all, what would it be?This writing assignment, given out in Ms. Hart’s tenth-grade creative writing class, sparks a group of nine students each to tell his/her own story. Readers are introduced to Jake and Shante’s interracial romance, Carlos’ fear of deportation, and Sunday’s determination after being sexually assaulted. These teens persevere through hardship and heartache, laughter and love, and in the end, their voices shine through inspiring journal entries that answer the question in unusual and unexpected ways. Once again, Brenda Woods shows a keen understanding of the teenage psyche, as she did in Emako Blue, winner of the 2005 IRA Children’s Choice Young Adult Fiction Award.
