Hello Stars by Alena Pitts with Wynter Pitts
Lena Daniels always wanted to meet movie star Mallory. She has an opportunity to win a chance to meet her and star in a movie . She just needs to make a video telling why this would be her greatest desire. Of course, that’s not exactly how it all happened. Lena’s video is not anything that she was proud of and she figures her chance to meet her idol is out of reach. Lena gets her chance and leaves her home, family and friends for her great adventure toaster in a movie with her idol.
Lena is identifiable for many young teens. They can relate to Lena’s desire to meet their idol and wow what an adventure to star in a movie! The reader gets a glimpse on how it is to work on a movie set though Aleyna’s eyes, having worked on a movie herself. The adventures Lena experiences in the book keep the reader engaged and laughing. This book is refreshing, showing a tween who has a relationship with God that her choices influence and can impact their life. It illustrates how a person’s relationship with God can be through journaling. Hand this book to any tween looking for a fun filled adventure. Girls who are walking with the Lord will find a new “friend” in Lena and will eagerly await her next adventure.
