From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller The Glass Castle comes The Silver Star, a heartbreaking and redemptive novel about an intrepid girl who challenges the injustice of the adult world—a triumph of imagination and storytelling.
It is 1970 in a small town in California. Bean is twelve and her sister, Liz, is fifteen when their artistic mother takes off to find herself, leaving her girls enough money to last a month or two. When Bean returns from school one day and sees a police car outside the house, she and Liz decide to take the bus to Virginia where their uncle lives.
Bean soon discovers who her father was and why their mother left Virginia in the first place. When school starts, Bean easily makes friends but Liz becomes increasingly withdrawn. And then something happens to Liz.
Walls writes about triumph over adversity and about people who find a way to love each other and the world, despite its flaws and injustices.
