Tamen aches to see the stars, but none are visible in the light-polluted sky above the fire escape of his urban building. Even in the local park, the stars are hidden by city lights. Tamen’s mom, a nightshift nurse, takes him camping. For one magical night on the shore of a wilderness pond, the Milky Way in all its glory belongs to them.
