The Farewell meets Nat Enough in this middle-grade graphic novel about a Korean-American girl who makes an ill-fated wish to fit in and must grapple with the consequences when she returns to Korea to attend her grandmother's funeral.


All Yuna wants is to belong. Furious at her Umma for never packing her a “normal” American lunch, they get into yet another fight. Out of options and miserable, Yuna remembers a legend that her grandma, Halmoni, told her. If you fold 1,000 paper stars, you will be granted one wish.

When she reaches 1,000 paper stars, Yuna wishes for her family to move back to Korea. Seconds later: her sister knocks at her door with devastating news. Halmoni has died.

Yuna knows this is all her fault. As her guilt builds, her body begins to turn into paper. Yuna realizes she must bring her Halmoni back—or turn into paper forever.

Wholly heartbreaking with light touches of magic realism, A Sky of Paper Stars is a captivating graphic novel about identity, family, and the love that can bridge generations.
