ABOUT THE BOOK

She was made of blood and bones, and he was made of space and stars

Back in a time when there were still students of the stars, there were two friends, Acamar and Eridani.

Eridani was a star pupil studying the night skies, and Acamar . . . well, he was made of the stuff she studied.

In a star-crossed twist of fate, these long-distance friends find they’ve wished themselves into unexpected new worlds.

Filled with stardust and moonglow, this cosmic adventure shows us how even the most brilliant wishes can have a mind of their own—and that true friendship can endure, despite time and space.
