Review: Can Tommy Pepper save a planet's last hope or his own? Read What Came from the Stars by Gary D. Schmidt to find out.
Tommy Pepper is in the 6th grade at William Bradford Elementary School in Plymouth, Massachusetts when he receives a green and silver necklace. Strange things begin to happen to Tommy and the people of Plymouth. Tommy's mother has died, and the necklace he received brings back memories of his mom. The chain is from a planet called Valorim, and it has special powers. Unfortunately, Lord Mondus is seeking the necklace, and he will stop at nothing to get it.
In my opinion, What Came from the Stars is an average book. There were a few suspenseful parts, and I enjoyed the storyline, but there was not enough action to suit me. I prefer less dialogue and more thrilling events. If you like books about special powers, you may appreciate this book. Check it out the next time you visit the library.
