Zoe's uncle makes her feel special. Though ill with AIDS now, he surprises her by decorating the ceiling in her room with hundreds of glow-in-the-dark stars. Uncle Leonard can't promise Zoe when or if he will ever get well, but he reassures her he will always love her and, like the stars, be "close enough to see". Watercolor illustrations.
