Overview
Welcome to Starling Academy. Twelve very special students have been selected from this year's class to reclaim the wish energy that powers their beloved planet, Starland. The Star Darlings, as they are known, take classes where they learn how to grant the wishes made on birthday candles, shooting stars, dandelions, wishbones, and coins tossed into fountains, just to name a few. Their top-secret mission will take them to Wishworld (known in some places as Earth). There they will have to find the Wisher and figure out how to grant the wish before time runs out and they are stuck on Wishworld forever. Sage is the first Star Darling soaring off to Wishworld. Travel with her as she discovers how challenging life on a new planet can be and how she learns the importance of friendship, teamwork, and never assuming anything.

The husband-and-wife Zappas launch their 12-book Star Darlings series, part of a multimedia property that will include animated shorts, dolls, apps, and music. The novels spotlight the dozen Starling Academy students who are tapped to grant the wishes of the inhabitants of Wishworld, which sounds quite a bit like Earth. Since the positive energy generated by young Wishers powers Starland, the Star Darlings' missions will save their own world's dire energy crisis. This first entry focuses on determined, adventurous Sage, who travels to Wishworld on a shooting star to identify her chosen Wisher and fulfill her wish within the allotted time. The authors ground their fantasy with such real-life tangles as feeling left out, coping with mean girls, and not judging others, while stuffing the pages with details about the girls' outfits and accouterments, as well as unoriginal thematic adjectives like "startacular" and "starmendous." Substantial exposition and backstory regarding the Star Darlings' world makes for slow-going reading, though the story picks up once Sage starts her mission. Available simultaneously: Libby and the Class Election. Ages 8–12. (Sept.)
