This compelling and deeply personal autobiography of a pioneering Latina rocket scientist is sure to inspire any young girl who's an aspiring scientist or engineer. Path to the Stars focuses primarily on Acevedo's elementary and junior high years, and some readers may be disappointed that Acevedo didn't write more about her life in and after college.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
