Stargazing | Jen Wang

Moon is everything Christine isn't. Shes confident, impulsive, artistic . . . and though they both grew up in the same Chinese-American suburb, Moon is somehow unlike anyone Christine has ever known. But after Moon moves in next door, these unlikely friends are soon best friends, sharing their favorite music videos and painting their toenails when Christine's strict parents aren't around. Moon even tells Christine her deepest secret: that she has visions, sometimes, of celestial beings who speak to her from the stars. Who reassure her that earth isn't where she really belongs. Moon's visions have an all-too-earthly root, however, and soon Christine's best friend is in the hospital, fighting for her life. Can Christine be the friend Moon needs, now, when the sky is falling? New York Timesbestselling author-illustrator Jen Wang draws on her childhood to paint a deeply personal yet wholly relatable friendship story thats at turns joyful, heart-wrenching, and full of hope.

Loved this sweet story about friendship, guilt, and forgiveness. Based on the author‘s personal experience, this is a great read for fans of Shannon Hale‘s Real Friends.

I absolutely loved this book from beginning to end! Illustrations were awesome as well. This is a story of a new girl who gets befriended by an awkward (but of course!) neighbor/landlord's daughter. A lot of things happen throughout this book that can happen in real life... jealousy, fights, etc. Ending was superb and cute. Really good story.

Just setting up for the #readathon #deweyoct today #deweyreadathon #readathonhourlyphoto and can‘t wait to dive into some graphic novels. I can‘t read the whole day since we have plans for the night to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary but hoping to get through this stack during the day maybe.

After my last two #screamathon reads, I had to go for something a little lighter. I don‘t think this was a good as Wang‘s The Prince and the Dressmaker. Some of it needed fleshing out a bit more, but I loved Moon. In the end, this was sweet and uplifting.

I‘m not big on graphic novels but for some reason wanted to give this one a try. It‘s a very quick and light read for the most part. The ending adds some deeper feelings and ties things together. Cute. 😊

This was absolutely adorable! And I loved the little snippets of Chinese and Buddhist culture that were included.

Another great graphic novel for young readers to adults! Thanks again to NetGalley and First Second for allowing me to read this ARC. I fell in love with the cover and description, and of course the author (who wrote “The Prince and the Dressmaker”), so I knew I had to read it! The title also fits in well with our summer reading theme ⭐️
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Even after having finished this book, I really have no idea what is is about. Kids are afraid of the girl Moon because she is mean. Moon moves into an apartment behind Christine‘s house and gets to know Moon. There is dancing, being a girl, etc, and the beginnings of a friendship. But the book is all over the place. You also have a wacky terrible surprise ending that comes out of almost nowhere but doesn't really end either.

I love Jen‘s work. This book, which draws on events from her childhood, is a heartfelt look at feeling like you‘re not enough and that you don‘t fit it. There are so many moments in here that are universal to childhood, the jealousy you feel when one of your friends seems to be better friends with someone else or when your parents seem so strict by comparison to your friends‘ parents. Just so much in here that rings true.
