Jeanne Zulick Ferruolo

Sail into the sky with Jeanne Zulick Ferruolo at the launch of her new book, A GALAXY OF SEA STARS! This timely tale discusses friendship across cultures with heart and warmth similar to Katherine Applegate and Kate DiCamillo’s books. At the event, Jeanne will talk about her new book, answer audience questions, and sign copies. 


ABOUT THE BOOK:
In this heartfelt middle-grade novel, Izzy's quiet beach town life is upended when a new friendship with a Muslim girl teaches her about acceptance, respect, and being true to what is right.
Izzy is starting sixth grade, and she wants her dad to act like he did before he was deployed to Afghanistan. She wants her mom to move back to the marina where they live. Most of all, she wants Piper, Zelda, and herself—the Sea Star Posse—to stay best friends. But everything changes when Izzy's father invites his former interpreter's family, including twelve-year-old Sitara, to move in. Izzy doesn't know what to make of Sitara, with her hijab and refusal to eat cafeteria food, and her presence disrupts the Sea Star Posse. But as Izzy and Sitara grow closer, Izzy must make a choice: stay in her comfort zone and risk betraying her new friend, or speak up and lose the Sea Star Posse forever. A Galaxy of Sea Stars is about family, loyalty, and the hard choices we face in the name of friendship.
