Acclaimed Latino writer's collection for young adults Best-selling novelist Victor Villasenor grew up with these stories that he now is sharing with young people far and wide. The tales of derring-do and self-discovery set to the backdrop of the Mexican Revolution and his family's immigration to the United States all involve young people overcoming physical, emotional, and psychological barriers during times of extreme stress. The over-riding message of Villasenor's exciting narrations is that we can all be heroes. Especially young people, who have the power to create their own futures, can find within themselves the power to achieve great feats of skill and courage, whether fighting witches or real-life oppressors. And, too, spirituality, imagination, and love of family are also the domain of the young, and these can help young men and women overcome all manner of adversity. Within the pages of Walking Stars is a whole cast of lovable, down-to-earth children and teenagers whose desire and perseverance take them to stardom, but a stardom different from that found on television and the popular media: It is the brilliance of becoming strong, confident, and contributing adults able to bring positive change into society.
