Marina is a foster child who wants desperately to find her birth mother. She's convinced she finally has, but no one will believe her. What should Marina do?
She wants to know her real mother so badly--it seems that if she wishes for it hard enough, it will come true. And then, it seems, it does. If Marina doesn't tell her mother who she is, they might be separated forever! But the risks of telling are as big as her desire.
Marina's Star is the poignant, touching story of one girl's quest to understand who she really is.

This well-written, sensitive, and accessible story should touch the emotions of readers from primary level onward. Highly recommended.

- Lesley Shortt Canadian Book Review Annual

"A touching story..."

- Le Journal de Montreal

"Marina's Star, the touching story of a young girl with one great longing and a highly-developed imagination, creates almost a modern day Anne of Green Gables... Quebec author Linda Brousseau creates an intriguing girl who is far from perfect...but who is living is a gritty, stark reality.
