When the Ku Klux Klan makes an unwelcome reappearance in Stella's segregated southern town, bravery battles prejudice in this Depression-era tour de force from Sharon Draper, the New York Times best-selling author of Out of My Mind.
Stella lives in the segregated South - in Bumblebee, North Carolina, to be exact about it. Some stores she can go into. Some stores she can't. Some folks are right pleasant. Others are a lot less so. To Stella, it sort of evens out, and heck, the Klan hasn't bothered them for years. But one late night, later than she should ever be up, much less wandering around outside, Stella and her little brother see something they're never supposed to see, something that is the first flicker of change to come, unwelcome change by any stretch of the imagination. As Stella's community - her world - is upended, she decides to fight fire with fire. And she learns that ashes don't necessarily signify an end.

The narrator brings the story to life as if it were her own. Felt as if I were listening to storytime after supper. Superb blend of voice and story.
This book really explains about what it was like back then. I would reccomend this story to anyone who wants to learn more about the differences on how blacks and whites were treated back then.
I did not have a thing that I don't like I loved this book because of the story plot if I had to read a book then I'd read this book Stella by Starlight has been one of the best books I've ever read if you like this book then you might like One Crazy Summer this author is so good that when I read this I believe that I'm really Stella cooking,or cleaning the chicken coop read this book it's so good 😀
