The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole - Michelle Cuevas

Staff Pick

Stella Rodriguez has a serious problem. After trying to set up a meeting with Carl Sagan at NASA headquarters, she attracts the attention of a black hole who follows her home. Larry (short for gravitational singularity, of course) will eat anything: dust bunnies, ugly sweaters, smelly hamsters, and, as Stella finds out, any memory about her father that makes her sad. Perhaps inevitably, Larry’s insatiable appetite eventually leads him to swallow up Stella herself. While learning about The Care and Feeding of a Pet Black Hole (Dial, $16.99) the hard way, Stella must find her way back home and back to happiness. With quick wit and deep empathy, Michelle Cuevas takes readers on an adventure through space and time and shows that sometimes it’s okay to grieve— and, thankfully, that every black hole has a wormhole to the other side. Ages 10-12.
