    It is 1970. "Bean" Holladay is 12 and her sister, Liz, is 15 when their artistic mother, Charlotte, a woman who flees every place she’s ever lived at the first sign of trouble," takes off to find herself." She leaves her girls enough money for food to last a month or two. But when Bean gets home from school one day and sees a police car outside the house, she and Liz board a bus from California to Virginia, where their widowed Uncle Tinsley lives in the decaying antebellum mansion that’s been in the family for generations.

    Marci says: "Disappointing"
    "Great read!"

    If you could sum up The Silver Star in three words, what would they be?

    Great summer read!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character " Bean". Her 12 year old perspectives run a wide range from innocent to tenacious & stubborn through the whirlwind of changes she & her sister take on, both In their world as kids & the world of adults. Uncle Tinsley, the reclusive hoarder, was a close second with his odd, but caring efforts in offering the girls an anchor in their lives.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    1st day of school at their new school - the mixture of excitement & dread against the backdrop of the historical timing.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were both "laugh out loud" moments & moments where I winced with empathy for Bean, her sister, & her mom, & others in the Holladay clan.


    Any additional comments?

    Believable characters & real life dilemmas.
