    Melanie and Bree have very different advice for Kenny and Ally about how to survive in a new school. Jack also offers his own take on fitting in at school. Think about how each character’s advice differs. Who gives the best advice? Is it possible that neither of them is completely right or wrong? What advice would you give them?

    1. On one of her attempts to walk the Moon Shadow Campground’s labyrinth, Bree has a brief conversation with Stella which ends with Stella saying, “Life is short, but it’s wide.” What does Stella mean by this? How are the lives of the main characters “widened” by their experience together?

    1. Their experiences together at Moon Shadow Campground seem to change Ally, Bree, and Jack. What are those changes? Who do you think has changed the most so far prior to the eclipse? Do you think the changes will last for all of them after the eclipse?

    Throughout the book, each character has a symbol associated with them (Ally- a crescent moon, Bree- a star, Jack the planet, Saturn). Think about the symbols and what you know about them and each of the characters. Do you think the symbols are appropriate? Explain.

    In the beginning of the book Bree states, “We all have things to offer the world. My beauty is what I have to give.” Is it true that her beauty is the only thing she has to offer the world? What are some of the other things she has to offer? What are some of the things both Ally and Jack have to offer that they might or might not be aware of?

    Each of the main characters in Every Soul a Star has an item that is very special to them. Ally has her grandfather’s meteorite, Jack has his father’s stuffed rabbit, and Bree has her Wish Book. Why is each of these things special or important to their owners and what, if anything, do they represent?

    1. Why do you think Wendy Mass decided on the title, Every Soul a Star for her novel? In what ways do you think Ally, Bree, and Jack might be considered a “star”?
