Recommended for ages 12+
Stella, a fast-thinking (and even-faster-talking) teenager, has barely even started high school, and she’s already over it. Obviously, the best course of action is to lay low and hope that no one notices that she’s an awkward, clinically anxious space-nerd. But when that plan goes supernova and explodes, she scrambles to cope with totally normal teen challenges, like bullying, casual binge eating, and… accidentally becoming an ice hockey goalie? Interrogating the way bodies are approached as a problem to be fixed, Celestial Bodies is one girl’s cosmic journey to truly owning, literally and metaphorically, the space she occupies.
