Hello Stars by By Alena Pitts with Wynter Pitts

Lena Daniels never thought she’d get the chance star in a movie. Headstrong and determined, she has her life planned out to the minute. But when her best friends, Savannah and Emma, tell her about an audition, she knows there’s nothing else in the world she’d rather do. And now that she’s gotten her wish, Lena finds that being in the spotlight is harder than it sounds. She got everything she never wanted! Her face turns up everywhere she goes, and everything in her life is flipped upside down. Lena wonders if this is a dream come true or a horrible nightmare. Even a visit from her best friends during filming turns into a disaster

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.
