Gus and the Starlight
Published: 2022 by HarperCollins Publishers
Level: Middle Years (6-9)
Gus and her family have fled in the night, driving for the longest time, and finding themselves in a remote town, where they stumble into jobs at the local drive-in movie theatre. Gus doesn’t want to make friends, and she doesn’t want to enjoy her job as the projectionist, because she knows they’ll likely have to move on again. And saying goodbye is too hard.
