Summary

A girl runs away from her foster home to get to the Royal Observatory of London to try and name a newly discovered star after her mother who was murdered by her father.

I've always wanted to be a Star Hunter. Grown-ups call them astronomers, but I think Star Hunter sounds much better. I was going to become one when I finished school, but I can't wait that long any more. You see, I have to find my mum.

Everyone says she's gone, but I know that's not true - I know she's turned into a star. She's breaking all the rules of the universe to find me again. And I'm going to break all the rules I know to help her do it.

NOTE : The main character's mother was killed by her father. This has happened before the book begins and she lives in foster care with her younger brother as a result. The back of the book gives contact information for related support as well as the story of the author's aunt who was murdered by her husband.
