9781410716859: Starlight, Starbright. . .

Humor, mystery, adventure, tragedy, and love are all elements in the coming-of-age story of Sissy Bannister, a feisty, precocious girl, who meets life in a new town and a new school head-on. The pages are filled with stories of the diverse citizens that live in Redbud Grove, many of whom love, and are loved by, Sissy. Each chapter highlights different people, good and bad, old and young, rich and poor, that contribute to her education and help to mold the character of the strong, independent woman Sissy becomes. Watch Sissy as she comes to terms with economic differences among the people in her town. Smile at her wonder when she listens to adults discussing topics that leave her puzzled and looking for answers. Laugh aloud at the discoveries she makes when she and her friends peek through the window of a witch's house. Cry with her at the loss of an unlikely friend. Share Sissy's rage at the tragedy that befalls another 'new girl', who becomes one of Sissy's best friends.Follow Sissy as she learns that small towns are not immune from bigotry, prejudice, bullies or injustice. Shake your head at her daring as she experiences a dangerous first crush, an intoxicating first kiss, and encounters life in all its fullness inside the boundaries and the rich, prairie outskirts of her little town, Redbud Grove.STARLIGHT, STARBRIGHT-- covers the first fourteen-and-a-half years of Sissy Bannister's life. Watch for the sequel, I WISH I MAY, I WISH, I MIGHT, that continues the saga of Sissy into adulthood, and on to what was written for her in the stars she so-loved to watch.

About the Author:

Barbara Elliott Carpenter grew up in a small Midwest town, much like the fictional town of Redbud Grove, Illinois. Her love of writing began in the fourth grade and is now a passion, taking precedence over oil painting, which she also enjoys. Barbara has received awards and prizes for her poems and short stories, some of which are currently included in the curriculum of a California high school Literature class. A prolific writer, she has been published in Reader's Digest and other periodicals, as well as various online publications. Barbara was a member of the Cedarhurst Writer's Roundtable for many years. She is currently working on a sequel to STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT..., which is entitled, I WISH I MAY, I WISH I MIGHT..., and has three more novels in progress. She has two children, four grandchildren, and a lazy male cat, named Juliet. Barbara and her husband, Glenn, live in south central Illinois. They have been married for forty-four years, many of them, quite happily.
