Angel Morgan's family is falling apart.
Her daddy is in jail, and her mother has abandoned Angel and her
little brother, Bernie, at their great-grandmother's crumbling
Vermont farmhouse. Grandma spends most of her time wrapped in a
blanket by the wood stove.
There is one bright spot in Angel's world -- a mysterious
stranger who teaches Angel all about the stars and planets and
constellations. Carving out a new life proves harder than Angel
ever imagined. But she feels a tiny spark of hope when she
remembers what the stranger said -- that she is made of the same
stuff as stars.
