This is one of the books that I wish I had when I was growing up. It would of helped me a lot! I recommend this to any teenager or middle schooler who is going through a hard time in school. You are not alone and this book will make you feel heard.  
Aisha writing is so beautiful and I read this in one sitting. I will read anything and everything this author comes up with. 
Pocketful of stars is about finding yourself and not being what everyone wants you to be. 
I loved saf’s story and please please please read this book.

Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own.

This book was so much more than I ever thought it would be. I enjoyed every second of it, despite it ripping my heart in half. As both a mother and a daughter this story rang so familiar to me. It takes a common situation between a parent and child and gives it a unique life. The blurring of the fantasy world and the real world is done wonderfully. It's able to convey the desperate feelings of Safiya in a way that is both effective and hopeful.

A Pocketful of stars is well written and beautiful. It's story is one that will leave you heartbroken and in love.
