Fun story that reminded me a bit of Nikki Grimes' book, Bronx Masquerade. The story is of a Los Angeles area high school and told in various voices of students in Ms. Hart's English class. One day, when a student talks about being a star, the idea of the Hollywood Walk of Fame comes up. Ms. Hart requires each student to write a journal entry explaining what their star would be for on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. As the story goes on, characters reveal bits of their lives and though seemingly very different, come together in many different ways. I think this would be a great story to use in a creative writing class. ( )
