Five Boundless Stars
This book is set a few years in the future from where book 2 left off. In this book Michelle is finally a teacher and she meets a young woman who is in need of love and some help. Along with helping her troubled student some health issues arise in her family. I found this book to be my favorite so far. Maybe its because I can relate some or maybe its because I'm sympathetic to young people who need help when they feel all alone in the world. I also can sympathize with the health issues that arise. I don't want to give to much away, but this book was both hopeful and heartbreaking to me. I absolutely loved this story and couldn't put it down. By the way the ending is amazing!
