Starry River of the Sky

By Grace Lin
Level 6

Grace Lin is a fantastic writer, and this is an enjoyable book with interesting characters and an engaging plot.  When Rendi runs away from home, he finds himself working in a small village as a chore boy. The moon is missing, and as Rendi eventually solves the mystery, he also works out problems in his own life, gains new friends, and discovers what is important in life. Because the book contains a few mildly scary scenes, I do not recommend this book as a read-aloud for children under age 10. Also note that it is a fantasy that contains a lot of mythical elements.
