Author: Rene Saldana, Jr.

A long-term friendship is put to the test in The Whole Sky Full of Stars, a novel by Rene Saldana, Jr. Get the review right here.

A No-Win Situation

Barry and Alby have been best friends since the first grade, but they're as different as night and day. Barry is a bit of a teddy bear - but he would still punch a guy out and make him see stars to protect his family, especially since his dad passed away and his mom is slaving away at two jobs just to make ends meet. Alby, on the other hand, is small and conniving. He can talk his way out of anything... well, almost anything. When Alby gets caught up in a gambling debt with a bunch of thugs, he has to come up with $500 fast!

That's What Friends Aren't For

Alby thinks his prayers are answered when a shady competition called the Man 'o Might comes to town. He goes to dirty lengths to convince Barry to enter the match - without even considering the fact that Barry could get hurt - cuz Alby could use the prize money to pay back his debts! But when Alby finds out the prize is a measley $100, he starts making bets on the side to pull in some extra cash, putting himself in even more danger and his friendship with Barry on the line.


The Bottom Line

The Whole Sky Full of Stars is one of those heartwarming stories about the importance of friends and family and how you should never take anyone for granted, cuz you never know when they'll be taken away from you. There isn't much action until you get to the fight scenes - and then, you'll be glued.
