Libby wants to be a scientist when she grows up, just like her hero, the underrated astronomer Cecilia Payne.

Here's what you say about us...

Sarah Allen has an MFA in creative writing from BYU and now lives in Seattle. She writes everything from articles to poetry to prose, and her superpower is speaking in fluent movie quotes. What Stars are Made of, into which she poured her own experience of Turner Syndrome, is Sarah's debut novel.

All the primary characters shine in this impressive debut.
Booklist - Donna Scanlon

Allen, who herself has Turner's syndrome, gracefully tackles heavy topics in her debut novel, including bullying and premature babies. Readers will empathize with spunky Libby's social stumbles and will root for her as she dares to dream big. A tender novel about love, loyalty, and finding yourself, this will win a place in many readers' hearts. An #OwnVoices novel that will be an important addition to any collection.
School Library Journal

In this assured debut, science whiz Libby Monroe shines when she selects Cecilia Payne, an astronomer who first determined the composition of stars, for an American History profile of someone excluded from the textbook . . . This witty novel's heroine proves winning, whether or not she gains top prize.
