Summary
When frumpy senior citizen Archie goes in search of his missing son in the Spanish Canary Islands, he stumbles upon a higher mission: to locate a magical cure for his ailing fourteen-year-old granddaughter, Ella. Using a portal-jumping device called the Tillastrion, Archie and a stone-headed creature named Zeno are transported to the magnificient yet terrifying island of Jarr-Wya in a connected realm. Unbeknownst to them, Ella and her strong-willed mother, Tessa, accidentally stowaway on this not-so-secret quest. What they find on Jarr-Wya is an island tortured by a wicked Star anchored in the sea. There, a three-way battle for dominion rages between the stone-wielding Bangols, the fiery Olearons, and the evil Millia sands. When Ella is captured, her wit and resourcefulness emerge as she fights against all odds to survive. At the same time on another part of the island, an enchanted river exposes Tessa's long-buried secrets and forces her to confront her broken marriage and a confusing new love triangle. She and Archie - with the help of a company of peculiar allies - track Ella and seek to unravel the terrible mystery of her cure. A mesmerizing, stay-up-all-night adventure of three unlikely heroes, Above the Star reminds us that no matter how young, or how old, even the smallest act of bravery transforms our lives and the fates of the worlds around us
