About the book

A resonant story of two friends trying to maintain their relationship from afar with dazzling results, filled with wishes, curiosity, and bravery. From award-winning author-illustrator Julia Denos. 

 

She was made of blood and bones, and he was made of space and stars.  

 

Back in a time when there were still students of the stars, there were two friends, Acamar and Eridani. 

 

Eridani was a star pupil studying the night skies, and Acamar . . . well, he was made of the stuff she studied. 

 

In a star-crossed twist of fate, these long-distance friends find they’ve wished themselves into unexpected new worlds. 

 

Filled with stardust and moonglow, this cosmic adventure shows us how even the most brilliant wishes can have a mind of their own—and that true friendship can endure, despite time and space.
