And as streams of light fan out behind the darkened sun like the wings of a butterfly, I realize that I never saw real beauty until now.

At Moon Shadow, an isolated campground, thousands have gathered to catch a glimpse of a rare and extraordinary total eclipse of the sun. It's also were three lives are about to be changed forever:

Ally likes the simple things in life--labyrinths, star-gazing, and comet-hunting. Her home, the Moon Shadow campground, is a part of who she is, and she refuses to imagine it any other way.

Popular and gorgeous (everybody says so), Bree is a future homecoming queen for sure. Bree wears her beauty like a suit of armor. But what is she trying to hide?

Overweight and awkward, jack is used to spending a lot of time alone. But when opportunity knocks, he finds himself in situations he never would have imagined and making friends in the most unexpected situations.

Told from three distinct voices and perspectives, Wendy Mass weaves an intricate and compelling story about strangers coming together, unlikely friendships, and finding one's place in the universe.

    At first, I only wanted to read this because I like the author, but when I started reading more, I really liked it and wanted to keep going. Although this is recommended for grades 4-8 and is only a Reading A-Z level U, I think that anybody will like to read it even if they don't want to at first. Three protagonists, are strangers to each other, named Ally, Bree, and Jack, have completely separate and different lives and perspectives, until they meet and eventually become friends. These three people start out one way, but by meeting each other and establishing strong relationships, their personalities change and they discover who they are. I like how the author made different perspectives for different sections of the story and it isn't just told by one of the protagonists.

                    This book is a great book! I recommend it for people who like a little drama. The book contains three different type of people almost anyone can relate to!

                      every soul a star is like about a eclipse and 3 very different kids just like us.(except MAYBE a bit older) and they come to watch the eclipse ally, jack, and bree. they say bree is gorgeous but she's hiding something. jack is oversized and awkward so he doesn't have any friend's until now. and ally... well she just likes to watches eclipses.
