    1 thought on “A Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

    1. I love Brenda Woods! The Red Rose Box and Emako Blue both hit just the right note and so does this book. Students are given an assignment about getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and through their struggles with essays their lives are revealed. Very heartfelt and gut-wrenching.

    2. Fun story that reminded me a bit of Nikki Grimes' book, Bronx Masquerade. The story is of a Los Angeles area high school and told in various voices of students in Ms. Hart's English class. One day, when a student talks about being a star, the idea of the Hollywood Walk of Fame comes up. Ms. Hart requires each student to write a journal entry explaining what their star would be for on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. As the story goes on, characters reveal bits of their lives and though seemingly very [...]

    3. Golden Sower Young Adult Nominee 2012-2013Woods, Brenda. A star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. New York: G.P. Putnam's Sons, 2010. Print. This book touches on many serious topics that are issues for many students in urban schools. Although the story centers on teens in a creative writing course I am sure that younger students in a high ability group would be able to not only grasp the content in this book but also be able to relate to the characters. In the book Carlos is afraid that he will be [...]

    4. This book is about a group of multicultural teens in Los Angeles who are all members of a creative writing class. Their paths all intersect outside of class, and each and every one of these teens has a story to tell. Their stories are all equally powerful and sometimes humbling. The students who are telling their stories are MJ: A smart, but plain, math tutor. Ronnie: A gorgeous popular girl that helps MJ look attractive. Gus: A white kid whose mother is HIV positive. Sunday: An African American [...]

    5. The stories of nine diverse teenagers at a Los Angeles high school comprise this slim, drama-filled novel. Characters include Sunday, who is molested by her mom’s boyfriend; basketball star Marlon, who endures a season-ending and possibly career-ending ACL tear; Carlos, whose family may be deported; and Jake and Shante, whose interracial romance is frowned upon by both friends and family. Any one of the nine stories could have filled a novel, but instead all are resolved in a short 164 pages, [...]

    6. I really enjoyed reading "A Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame." Very much so. I thought it was interesting. The way they evenly showed each character's story from different points of views was clever. I found it easy to relate to because I had some similar problems going on. I can relate most to MJ's (Mary) story the most. I feel her pain, I would talk to a poster, thinking it was the only one who would understand and just listen to me rant. I would recommend this to my friends that like romanc [...]

    7. A Star on the Holly Wood Walk of Fame by Brenda Woods is a story about Ms. Hart's tenth-grade writing class assignment. The assignment is for the students to write about what they would get a star on Hollywood Blvd. for. The book follows the nine students in Hart's class over a two week span and all the changes they go through in that short amount of time.As you read you get to be inside the head of each kid as the experience first love, bi-racial issues, first dates, new friendships, tragedies, [...]

    8. Okay, well this definitely was realistic fiction. I can see why it was nominated for the Golden Sower Award. It certainly brings diversity to the fore. However, I was bothered by the neat little happy ending. Maybe, that is contradictory since I kept thinking when I was reading it that I would rather be reading fantasy and not the very real world (language and all)of high school.

    9. Fast-paced read! Reality TV packaged between the covers drama, angst, tragedy ad comedy. Short punchy chapters follow the activities of a class of high school students as each of them deals with the issues and traumas. The author manages to bring each student to life as they contemplate their class assignment of what would qualify them for a star on Hollywood Blvd.

    10. I wanted to like this book, and I will likely be giving it to 6th and 7th graders. The big flaw in this book is that the teens' stories are framed by their teacher's story, and it ends up feeling like it was all about her: a misstep given the audience should be teens themselves. However, the diverse cast, familiar situations, and ease of reading will make this a popular one around here.

    11. I enjoyed this, but it was kind of forgettable. A class of students gets an assignment to write about why they think they might get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Each chapter follows a different character, and each character has different aspirations and issues. The only story I remember is the one where the girl gets fondled by her mom's boyfriend. Everything turns out fine.

    12. This book did throw around a lot but I liked reading it. I was so confused a lot because of it changing people, so that's why I give it 3 stars. If your good at keeping up with it changing people continuously then this is the book for you.

    13. it was nice but I felt really bad for Sunday because she was sexually abused by her moms boyfriend and I also feel bad for Jack because his mom got into coma in a car accident, but I really hate Morlan said that he hates god.

    14. When Ms. Hart gives a writing assignment, the students in her class begin to explore their lives and what thing they might for which they might become famous. Through multiple narrators, Woods explores the trials and tribulations of high school. What a great read!

    15. great book for 9th - 12th grade Read 180 classes. Many students will relate to one of the characters in this book. wonderful!

    16. Love the monologue format and the themes related to this wondrous coming of age tale where students make meaningful life changes. This book is very similar to Emako Blue thematically and in format.

    17. A Golden Sower Nominee for Young Adults next year. Multiple points of view, quick read, might be liked by some reluctant readers.
