THE GIRL WHO REACHED FOR THE STARS is a breathtaking tale of daring dreams and a love that surmounts all barriers. Set against the evocative background of Medieval Venice, this riveting story is told from the perspectives of several people whose destinies are tightly intertwined: a young pickpocket, a savvy Jewish survival artist, and a teenage girl with a remarkable talent. All of them are torn apart by violence, intrigue, revenge, and greed but also united by friendship, dreams of justice, and the courage to reach for the stars.

Echoing his international bestseller THE BOY WHO GRANTED DREAMS, Luca Di Fulvio’s novel tells the unforgettable love story between a Christian boy and a Jewish girl against the backdrop of the first Jewish ghetto in sixteenth-century Venice.

Luca Di Fulvio was born in 1957 and lives as a freelance author in Rome. He studied dramaturgy at the Accademia Nazionale d’Arte Drammatica Silvio D’Amico and was taught by Andrea Camilleri before he started writing. His novels have spent many weeks at the top of the prestigious Spiegel Bestseller List.
