My favorite genre is realistic fiction but this historical fiction book blew my mind. Stella by Starlight by Sharon M. Draper is out of this world, this book is about a girl named Stella and her family. Stella is living in a time where if you were an African American you were treated differently. Since Stella was an African American things went wrong when she and her brother Jojo caught the Klu Klux Klan having a meeting. She warns her whole neighborhood and they work together with some white people to keep everyone safe. Unfortunately not everyone is protected from the klan and people get injured. Read Stella by Starlight to find out more, I definitely think people that like to read realistic fiction but also like to learn would love this book, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
