Book SynopsisIn this deeply emotional story, we learn that lessons about life and death can be taught by the unlikeliest of teachers. In Jurni, one young girl with a passion for all things math, science, and outer space shines a light on how we can all deal with grief and loss.
The confusion, pain, and shock of tragedy affects us all, no matter how old we are. After losing her mother, Jurni's dad urges her to look up at the starlit night sky, and explains that her mother will always be up in the stars. From that moment on, Jurni is set on a course to reach the stars she sees from below. Her mission: becoming an astronaut to be close to her mother again. The only hurdle in Jurni's way is winning a local NASA science competition that could pave the way for her biggest dream.
Join Jurni as she embarks on a quest that will give her a deeper knowledge of her own ability to survive the pain of personal loss.
