A Pocketful of Stars is a story about family, friendship and finding out who you are...with a sprinkling of magic.
Can piecing together the past help you change the present?
Safiya and her mum have never seen eye to eye. Her mum doesn’t understand Safiya’s love of gaming, and Safiya doesn't think they have anything in common. As Safiya struggles to fit in at school, she wonders if her mum wishes she was more like her confident best friend, Elle. But then her mum falls into a coma and, when Safiya waits by her bedside, she finds herself in a strange alternative world that looks a bit like one of her games. And there’s a rebellious teenage girl, with a secret, who looks suspiciously familiar....
A Pocketful of Stars is warm and heartbreaking with a magical timeslip twist, from a rising star of children's stories.
