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

"The expertly paced, lyrical third-person narration creates an otherworldly atmosphere for this long-form picture book. The texts of the first and second halves of the story mirror each other, further highlighting the special connection between the friends. Illustrations are awash in textures, some splattered, some brushed, some drawn, visually expanding the ethereal world created by the text.... Readers will be thrilled to learn from the author’s note that Acamar really is a star within the constellation Eridanus, and Denos provides some resources for those who want to learn more. Get lost in the stars in this gorgeous tale of friendship and astronomy." — Kirkus Reviews
