*First Line Friday 8/14/20* Star Daughter- Shveta Thakrar

52781202. sy475 The daughter of a star and a mortal, Sheetal is used to keeping secrets. Pretending to be “normal.” But when an accidental flare of her starfire puts her human father in the hospital, Sheetal needs a full star’s help to heal him. A star like her mother, who returned to the sky long ago.

Sheetal’s quest to save her father will take her to a celestial court of shining wonders and dark shadows, where she must take the stage as her family’s champion in a competition to decide the next ruling house of the heavens–and win, or risk never returning to Earth at all.

This gorgeously imagined YA debut blends shades of Neil Gaiman’s Stardust and a breathtaking landscape of Hindu mythology into a radiant contemporary fantasy.


“My mother is a star. I am half- half of the Earth, half of the heavens. Cut me, and I might bleed silver.”

There is nothing better than a great cup of coffee and an even better book.

  1. This book has such a beautiful cover. I have to say I am sold by that first line. I have a lot of questions especially with her mom being a star and her dad is mortal. I’m going to have to look into this book.
