  • Aster attends a school for gifted kids, but she doesn’t think she’s special at all. If she was, her mother wouldn’t have left. And if she isn’t careful, everyone else will leave her too. Aster’s Good, Right Things is the compelling tale of 11-year-old Aster’s experience with an anxiety disorder and her journey to find self-acceptance and happiness. The novel also tackles themes of friendship, parental separation, resilience, diversity and gender norms.

The authenticity of Aster’s experience lets readers know that hope is just waiting to be found. Aster's Good, Right Things has been shortlisted in the 2021 CBCA Awards for Younger Readers.
