Hello Stars By Alena Pitts with Wynter Pitts is a great book for girls 8-12 years old. When the main character Lena Daniels finds out she can audition to get into a movie and to meet her favorite singer, Mallory Winston, she jumps at the chance. But, then she isn't sure if she is right for the part.
After my eleven year old daughter read this book she excitedly told me there was another one in the series which she couldn't wait to read! ( it come out in September 2017) She loved the black and white illustrations and the fun clothes the girls were wearing. I liked that the girls were dressed modestly. Hello Stars is written from Lena's perspective and it also includes sweet journal entries she addresses to God.
The author, Alena Pitts, is a twelve year old girl. It was wonderful for my daughter to have a positive role model her age. Overall, I think this is a great book for tweens. It is hard to find books that my daughter wants to read and I approve of. This is one of those books. I highly recommend it.
Here is a sweet video about the book.
