A resonant story of two friends trying to maintain their relationship from afar with dazzling results, filled with wishes, curiosity, and bravery. 

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.

Julia Denos is the author of the multi-awarded picture book Windows, as well as Here and Now, both illustrated by E.B. Goodale, and is author/illustrator of Swatch: The Girl Who Loved Color, her author/illustrator debut, which was a 2016 ALA Notable selection. She is the illustrator of Margaret Cardillo's Just Being Audrey and Just Being Jackie, as well as I Had a Favorite Dress by Boni Ashburn. Inspired by her love of nature, words, and watercolor, she lives and works in coastal Massachusetts. Learn more at or Instagram: @juliadenos
