"What a beautiful children’s/middle school coming-of-age tale about overcoming obstacles and growing up. Hands down: I’d hand this out to anyone I knew around that age to read and enjoy. Heck, I’m an adult, and I enjoyed it. This book reminded me of what would happen if Ramona Quimby stumbled upon Italian magic. Everyone needs a little twinkle of stardust and moondust in their life. ⭐️" said.

"This was a great story about accepting trials in life. Luna and her father were involved in a car accident just before the start of seventh grade, As a result Luna does not start school at the beginning of the year, but has a classmate bring her work to her each week.. She is afraid to talk to her best friend as she is burnt and her nose is broken, forcing her to wear a compression mask.. The word "ugly" hangs in the air.

During this time of isolation, Luna meets the spacitricci, star sweepers, who clean the moon and stars and keep them shining. They go up in a ship, that resembles a steampunk airship, but shrinks in size to a child's toy. Luna spends a lot of time sitting outside her window watching Alessandro and Chiara when they move into the neighborhood. the real world and magic collide in this story to heal a twelve year old and her family.

"Meg Cannistra’s debut novel, The Trouble with Shooting Stars, feels a bit anachronistic to me, in that it feels like a book that I would have read and adored as a child, but yet I get to experience this perfectly magical and emotional tale as an adult instead, looking intrinsically, finding that childlike wonder still buried in myself.

Cannistra weaves two tales together masterfully; one side carries the personal and family drama the main character, Luna, must endure, the other the mysterious and magical new neighbors that Luna spies on from her window. The story might seem simple at first, but the story digs deep into Luna, and what comes is a poignant, yet uplifting, tale.

Having no interest in giving too much away, I simply urge anyone to read this novel, especially anyone who is fan of fantastical children’s literature. Meanwhile, I’ll be impatiently awaiting her second novel.

" I loved this book. It was an intriguing fantasy combined with a difficult reality. It had wonderful lessons, but I didn’t feel like I was being taught or lectured. " said.

" The Trouble with Shooting Stars beckons with the premise of twelve-year-old Luna befriending her peculiar neighbors who take her sailing through the night sky to sweep the moon, tidy the constellations, and nurse baby stars, but the entire narrative languishes in mundane trivialities. This book is in desperate need of momentum or narrative incline. Nearly DNF'd several times throughout. " said.
