Title: Stargazing
Author: Jen Wang
Published By: First Second, 2019

Hello, Vivi! Welcome to the ol’ blog. Thanks for agreeing to help me out and be a guest blogger. Today, we are going to discuss the last graphic novel you finished. Stargazing by Jen Wang.

First, what was your overall impression of the book?

V: I thought it was amazing! The author didn’t leave out anything. You really got to know the characters. I think it was one of the best books I ever read.

J: Which character did you like the best?

V: I really liked Christine and Moon. I liked Christine because she was a really sweet girl. It seemed like she had a really good life. I liked Moon because she was a very funny character and she wasn’t afraid to stand up to bullies.

J: Do you think it’s realistic that two characters that are so different would be friends?

V: Yes, I do.

J: Why?

V:  I think anyone can become friends.

J: What was your favourite part of the book? (I liked the part where Moon punched the little kid. I know, I know. I’m not supposed to say that. But, realistically, we’ve all known a kid like Gabriel. I’m not saying a punch in the face is the right way to go, but I’m glad Moon followed her heart.)

V: Well, I sort of agree with you on that one.

J: What part of the book made you feel things or worry?

V: When they found Moon’s brain tumor. Moon had to go to the hospital, and she was one of my favourite characters. I was worried something bad would happen to her.

J: What did you think of the ending?

V: I think the ending was perfect, because it establishes that Moon gets better, and that she and Christine are going to stay friends.

J: What did you think about the part about angels and everything?

V: I think that made Moon feel special. I think she was upset when she lost that ability.

J: What did you think of the art?

V: It was beautiful. It was one of the best parts of the book. It was detailed, it was colourful. I loved it!

J: Who do you think this book is for?

V: Probably nine, ten and eleven year olds. Tweens.

J: Do you have anything else you want to say about the book?

V: My favourite author (Raina Telgemeier) put a comment on the cover. That made me want to read it, for sure.

J: Thank you for your feedback, Vivi! You’re a great guest blogger. What shall we review next time?

V: Twins (by Varian Johnson, illustrated by Shannon Wright).
