Chantel Acevedo Author of A Falling Star is Coming to Meredith to discuss the novel. A Falling Star is a book about two girls, Daysy Maria del Pozo and Stella Maris Morales-Quinn, who both came to the United States as part of the 1980 Mariel Boatlift. Daysy settles in the south with her family, and Stella starts a new life in Pittsburgh with her mother and step-father. As Stella deals with her mother's suicide, and it slowly dawns on Daysy that there are family secrets she must uncover, the reader hears the del Pozo family history, piece by piece, from Daysy's mother. Soon it becomes clear that Daysy and Stella may share more than their Cuban-American heritage.
