Planet Earth is Blue
Author: Nicole Panteleakos
It's 1986, and 12-year-old Nova is eagerly awaiting the launch of the space shuttle Challenger. Nova and her big sister, Bridget, share a love of outer space and they planned to watch the launch together. But Bridget has disappeared, and Nova is in a new foster home.
While foster families and teachers dismiss Nova as severely autistic and nonverbal, Bridget always understood how intelligent and special Nova is, and all that she can’t express. As the liftoff draws closer, Nova’s new foster family and teachers begin to see her potential - and for the first time, she is making friends without Bridget. But still, she's counting down the days until the launch — to the moment when she’ll see Bridget again. Bridget said, “No matter what, I’ll be there. I promise.” And Nova needs her to keep her promise.
Your young readers will be captivated by this heartbreaking and hopeful story of a girl looking to the stars for guidance and praying that she’s not alone.
