Stargazing is a heartwarming middle-grade graphic novel in the spirit of Real Friends and El Deafo, from New York Times bestselling author-illustrator Jen Wang. Moon is everything Christine isn't. She's confident, impulsive, artistic . . . and though they both grew up in the same Chinese-American suburb, Moon is somehow unlike anyone Christine has ever known. But after Moon moves in next door, these unlikely friends are soon best friends, sharing their favorite music videos and painting their toenails when Christine's strict parents aren't around. Moon even tells Christine her deepest secret: that she has visions, sometimes, of celestial beings who speak to her from the stars. Who reassure her that earth isn't where she really belongs. Moon's visions have an all-too-earthly root, however, and soon Christine's best friend is in the hospital, fighting for her life. Can Christine be the friend Moon needs, now, when the sky is falling? Jen Wang draws on her childhood to paint a deeply personal yet wholly relatable friendship story that's at turns joyful, heart-wrenching, and full of hope.… (mais)

diverse children's middlegrade graphic novel (Chinese-American girl makes friends with girl who is "different," makes mistakes to spoil friendship, makes up, gains understanding).

Artwork has tons of kid appeal, and the story/characters are layered and complex--perfect middlegrade graphic for kids who can't get enough graphics. ( )

Christine is warned that Moon is a trouble-making child, but when Moon and her mother move next door to Christine's family, the two become friends. But can these two unlikely friends stay friends when not everything is as rosy as it seems?

This was an engaging book and it definitely had its moments. The friendship depicted between the two girls was refreshing; they had different interests but they also found commonalities where they could embrace one another. Their differences also rubbed off on each other, allowing each to be a more well-rounded person.

There were moments that were less stellar in the book, like when homelessness is briefly addressed but not really explored well. In general, it felt like this book was trying to follow too many threads at once and some of them ended up getting kind of lost.

That being said, it was still a very interesting read and even more so when I noticed the author's note at the back about how the book was semi-autobiographical in parts. I also appreciated that the majority of the characters are Asian-American, as we need more and more diversity in children's literature, especially in graphic novels. ( )

This is a quick, cute graphic novel written for a middle-grade audience. It's about the struggle to find your place and about being compassionate and patient with others and ourselves. Perhaps a little overly simple, emotionally, but that's consistent with my experience of many other graphic novels. My son and I read this as part of the Build Your Library homeschool curriculum, level 6. ( )

This feels very much like the story of a realistic fiction ya novel, focusing on relationships, trauma and the response to it, and so on. I still like Wang's art style, but I find it not as suited to this sort or realistic story than to the delightful confection of fairy tale and gender exploration that is The Prince and the Dressmaker. Not a bad job of what it is, but not really my kind of thing.

Very good graphic novel, the pictures were well illustrated and the story was inviting and made sense. This book was about finding friendship in an odd place and it conveyed the story of don’t judge a book by its cover well. ( )
