Elizabeth and Tara*Starr are different, so maybe that's why they're such good friends. While Tara*Starr is wild and full of sequins, glitter, and sparkles, Elizabeth is plain and sensible. When Tara moves with her childlike parents to Ohio, the girls start writing letters to each other. And while Tara*Starr's family flourishes, Elizabeth's is falling apart. The girls chronicle these events in sweet, touching letters to each other that will move you and make you want to read on and on.
