Star/Küyen/Star & Light

A trilogy which addresses different topics from the point of view of very special and authentic characters. Talking about loss, friendship, hardships, inclusiveness and indigenous people—very sensitive issues— is not that hard as it seems when children are the main protagonists.

Star & Light
Summary

Star seems to come from “another world”. She arrives in Germán’s right at the time when his dog Lucas is very sick. To everyone else Star seems strange, but to Germán she seems to be a magical girl. Star teaches him that everything is connected and that farewells, even though they are sad, might as well have a positive side.

Küyen is a Mapuche (indiginous) girl who enjoys the color and texture of wood. She has no siblings and this summer she will spend it with her mother while she is working at someone else's house. Nothing seems to be very exciting in that comfortable neighborhood, until Küyen meets Moon, a very different girl who seems to come from another planet. Moon does not understand the meaning of prejudices or religions and, apparently, has come to Earth with an important mission in which Küyen will play an important role too. 

Light does not talk much, and when she does, not many people understand her. She likes to look at the stars from her balcony and to spend the afternoons with her family. One day her life takes an unexpected turn when her new neighbor, Star, moves to the house across the street. She is a girl from the same age and seems to be the one who understands her the best.
