Winner of the Scott O'Dell Award, this moving and poetic fictional story follows two Taíno siblings and their life in the Bahamas during the fateful year of 1492.

Morning Girl and Star Boy couldn't be more different. Morning Girl relishes the day and all it has to offer, while her younger brother Star Boy loves the night. As they navigate change on their island, from familial struggles to the arrival of a hurricane, they realize everything that makes them different has the power to bring them closer together. This historical coming of age story thoughtfully portrays Morning Girl and Star Boys' complex sibling bond and life in the Caribbean leading up to the eve of Christopher Columbus' arrival to their home.

Told in alternating chapters, this is a rich, lyrical story about an indigenous Caribbean family and the strong bonds of love.
Michael Dorris was a novelist, short story writer, nonfiction writer, and author of books for children. His novel Morning Girl received the Scott O'Dell Award for Historical Fiction in 1994.
