I quite enjoyed Sheena, the sleuthing main character in The Girl Who Looked Beyond The Stars by L.B. Anne. This inquisitive tween has a lot going on—her dad’s accident, a mysterious paranormal appearance, and an unusual new friend and it appears her parents are keeping a secret from her. She is willing to look beyond the stars to discover new mysteries and find answers to her questions.
The Girl Who Looked Beyond The Stars raises questions about Sheena’s gift and how she’s supposed to use it. Middle-graders and younger young adults will love the mystery in this cute story and Sheena’s explorations to discover more about what she’s experiencing. But this story is just the beginning and readers will want to read on to find out more about this “gleamer’s” capabilities and the places her inquisitiveness takes her.
