Waterstones Says

A writer unafraid to tackle sensitive and emotive issues, Waterstones Children’s Book of the Year winner Onjali Q. Rauf turns her attention to the repercussions of domestic violence in this poignant story of adventure and discovery. Mixing the quirky with the confronting, The Star Outside My Window is another unqualified triumph from this bravest of authors.

From the Overall Winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2019

Following the disappearance of her mum, 10-year-old Aniyah suddenly finds herself living in foster care. With her life in disarray, she knows just one thing for sure: her mum isn't gone for ever. Because people with the brightest hearts never truly leave. They become stars.

So when a new star is spotted acting strangely in the sky, Aniyah is sure it's her mum, and she embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to make sure everyone else knows too -- an adventure that involves breaking into the Royal Observatory of London, a mischievous scurry of squirrels and the biggest star in Hollywood...

Told through the innocent voice of a child, this is a story that explores the subtle faces and endless impacts of domestic violence, and celebrates the power of hope and resilience, from Onjali Rauf, the award-winning author of The Boy at the Back of the Class.
