The whole school has been getting books for the visiting author. Fifth Grade’s book is Every Soul a Star. It is about three kids meeting each other because of a full solar eclipse. One of them owns a camp sight, with will be one of the only places to see the eclipse. Her parents are scientists, and she wears a small meteorite around her neck. Another is a boy who often doesn't get good grades, but instead of going to summer school, he is allowed by his teacher to go to the campsite and see the solar eclipse. The third, who thinks she is the prettiest thing in the world, and is spoiled, finds out she is temporarily moving to the campsite during the eclipse, so she gets so mad and tries to run away, but gets caught at her friend's house, and is forced to move to the campsite. The characters all meet at the campsite, and become friends. Check back later to find out more….
