About the Author

She earned her B.S. in Advertising from the University of Texas at Austin, and she's currently a candidate for an MFA in Writing for Children & Young Adults at the Vermont College of Fine Arts. Wishing Upon the Same Stars is her debut novel. Please visit her online at jacquettanammarfeldman.com.
This absorbing story compassionately tackles challenging subjects: the immigrant experience, explicit racism, family strife, and the enormity of Palestinian Israeli history. Feldman offers an ultimately optimistic message of hope and a chance for peace in ways both big and small. -- Booklist
Many readers will see themselves in Feldman's debut novel. This valuable title explores an issue rarely discussed in contemporary children's literature. Highly recommended for middle grade collections. -- School Library Journal
