A Surprise for a Wonderful Friend!



Many of you know that I am a big fan of YA author David Estes.  You may also know that he's a good friend of mine!  And you may know that he has some of the bestest and most loyal fans ever!! But you may not know who his biggest fan is!

That would be his beautiful wife, and best friend Adele.  Adele does so much for David, and is actually the person who got him to write in the first place!  I don't think she ever gets enough credit!

SO....this is a little gift that his fan club came up with for both David and Adele!!!

Because you both shine so bright, for each other and everyone to see, we have named a star for you!

David's Adele

Where it is located



Message from Karen:

David and Adele, I hope you know how much your friendship means to me...! To all of us, actually! Every time you look up at the stars, and you happen to gaze over towards Orion's belt, KNOW... Know that you are loved by each other... and by all of us! Thank you for everything you have given to us! You. Are. Our. Star!

Message from Jenny:

David and Adele, I feel so blessed to have you both as friends in my life!  You are both amazing people, and this is just a small token to let you know how much all of us love you!  Keep on shining!

Message from Tessa:

Hi David and Adele! It would be awesome if you guys lived in Hawaii!  If I visited you, we could go surfing together and look for your star at night!  Toodles!

Message from Dre:

Message from Kelly:

David, it's only a matter of time before the world realises how brightly your star shines. We're all so proud of you.

We love you guys!

Gifted from Jenny, Karen, Dre, Cheer, Alana, Nelly, Terri, Kelly, Lola, Rachel, Meaghan, Michael, Jen, Brooke, Linn, Tana, Jeann, Ruby, Think, Tracy, Redfox, Kayleigh, Dnicole, Madison, Gretchen, and Martha
