Starworld is a land that survives off the power of good wishes of humans from Earth (Wishworld). Piper is a young girl who has been accepted to the Starling Academy, where she will be trained to grant wishes when she grows up. But right away she is assigned to a new experimental group called the Star Darlings, where 12 young trainees get a chance to grant wishes right away. Piper has a sleepy and dreamy personality but finds her wisher in a family that owns a busy diner that requires time and attention. Will Piper be able to bond with her wisher before her time is out?
I cannot stress enough that these must be read in order, there are some little ongoing plots that would be so confusing. There are a few new mysteries introduced in this latest installment that are very intriguing. I am still advising for 2-4 grade, but so far only 2nd graders are interested in the series.
