Synopsis

2013 Laura Ingalls Wilder Award Angel Morgan needs help. Daddy is in jail, and Mama has abandoned her and her little brother, leaving them with their great-grandmother. Grandma is aged and poor, and doesn’t make any attempt to care for the children—that’s left up to Angel, even though she is not yet twelve. The only bright spot in Angel’s existence is the Star Man, a mysterious stranger who appears on clear nights and teaches her all about the stars and planets and constellations. “We’re made out of the same stuff as the stars,” he tells her. Eventually, Grandma warms to the children and the three begin to cobble together a makeshift family. Then events in Angel’s life take yet another downturn, and she must once again find a way to persevere. Katherine Paterson’s keen sensitivity and penetrating sense of drama bring us a moving story of throwaway children, reminding us of the incredible resilience of childhood and the unquenchable spirit that, in spite of loss, struggles to new beginnings.

About Red Owl Books

I specialize in hand-picked, children's used books. Children's books have always been my passion. Stories about Family Values; Inner Strength & Peace; our Earth Mother & her Creatures; Legends & Folklore of all kinds are a sample of the types of books I want to share. Many adults (including me), need these stories as much as our children do. Touched by the illustrators' beautiful work, the author's heartfelt words- I gather the books that move me and offer them to you.
