A Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame


Ms. Hart works as a teacher in a Los Angeles high school.  As part of a creative writing class, students are assigned to write about what they would like to be famous for.  If they could get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, for anything good that they have done or plan to do - what would they receive their star for?  A Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is written in alternating chapters, each narrated by the different characters, as they examine their lives, their passions, and the obstacles that life presents.  As students sit down to write their final draft they begin to realize that anything is possible when you reach for the stars.  A Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is a nominee for the young adult Golden Sower Award.
