Middle Grade Graphic Novel: Stargazing Book Review

Hi, my name is Leah and I’m one of L.B. Anne’s Summer Interns for her Author Apprentice Summer Internship Program. Today I get the chance to blog about a wonderful book (chosen by me) called Stargazing, by Jen Wang. Check it out.

Stargazing is a wholesome, fictional, graphic novel about the Hong family who becomes neighbors with Moon and her mother YuWen. It just so happens that both families have girls who are about the same age, Moon, and Christine.

Moon and Christine become best friends. Moon is creative and loves adventure, and Christine, an introvert who loves reading. Once becoming good friends, they decide to enter their school’s talent show, but then things take a turn…

This book was so sweet, between their friendship and the events that happened. I would highly recommend this book to ages 8-14. I rate this book an 8 out of 10. It was a great emotional story based on true events with a hint of fiction.

“Intimate and sweet. I’d like to hand Stargazing to every kid I know.” -Raina Telgemier, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Smile.

“Touching, funny, and sweetly observed” -Vera Brosgol, author of Be Prepared.

If you ever decide to take the time to read this wonderful book, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Available where books are sold.

Shout out to L. B. Anne for hosting this wonderful Summer Internship that I get to be a part of and for giving me this opportunity.

Leah V.
