Starworld is a land that survives off the power of good wishes of humans from Earth (Wishworld). Vega 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. Vega gets the call to go fourth and must travel to earth on shooting star in order to find the child that needs a wish granted and she feels more than prepared as solving puzzles is her favorite thing. Will she make assumptions and miss her big chance?
I tried this series out with a third grade class and there was zero interest. I am going to check fourth grade. My current theory is that 2nd graders will want to read it but find it too challenging. Fortunately I have some very advanced readers, done with Harry Potter series level, so maybe….
