The world of the Star Darlings is up against a force of evil. This book flips between the past and the present of the Star Darlings Series. Readers discover Lady Stella’s childhood friendship with gone wrong, and how that led to the rise of evil Rancora. Its interesting for the girls to learn so much about thier headmaster and the dangers of the job they have been given. Then the star darlings must face her with their new knowledge.
I tried to sum this read up as best I could but this was a complex and long book, basically book #13 of this series. This book is for sure upper elementary in complexity but the rest of series is being read by 2nd graders almost exclusively. I probably wouldn’t add this to my library, as most students aren’t making it all the way through the first 8 books that I do have. Older students have shown zero interest, thought they seem to like books like Monster high and Ever After high. That being said, I really like this series, its just in a weird place demographically.
