Book Review: Hello Stars by Alena Pitts
Hello Stars is written by Alena Pitts (with Wynter Pitts) and is published by Zondervan.
Lena Daniels is the oldest of four children who, with her trusty dog beside her, desires to become an actress. In order to become the big star she feels she was meant to be, she at first has to jump through the hoops, so to speak. This wears on her as she has to make choices between faith, family, and career. Ring a bell, adults?
Life is not easy, and in this darling story, Lena learns that valuable lesson. However, the road to that revelation is quite the rocky way.
I found the story sweet yet realistic. It is written in a story form with some of those appetizing diary pieces scattered throughout the chapters. I guess the reason Alena can pull it off is because she is a bit of a star herself. You might recognize her as one of the actresses in the movie, War Room. It is clear that she has a great talent and can go somewhere in this world of influencing others for Christ through media. I'm recommending this title to all of the tweens out there.
