This story takes place in both a library on Earth and a classroom in heaven. Events that take place in the library also take place in heaven. The story centers around a girl and a star named Arilla. The illustrations frequently are mirrored images of what takes place in both locations with the students and the stars. The teacher on Earth is Miss Carey but the teacher in heaven is none other than the Archangel Michael. In the course of the story, Arilla learns that God has a plan for her, it doesn't always happen as soon as she'd like it to happen, and she has to prepare for that plan. Without giving the story away in a description, the plan that God has for Arilla's life is more than she could have hoped for or dreamed of.
The tale is set to rhyme that makes it a fun read and with a repetition that makes it engaging for young readers. The combination of story and art make this a fun read for both young and young at heart.
