Victor receives a journal from his dad on his thirteenth birthday (although he'd rather have gotten a skateboard). He also received a mysterious letter in the mail, which he then writes about in his new journal. He writes about everything that happens to him in his journal, including the mystery letters he keeps getting. Then one day while at the pool, Victor meets a girl named D, whom he becomes friends with. She helps him overcome his fear of jumping off the diving board. Together they try to figure out who is writing the mysterious letters, and while doing so they find out who killed Kaiser Wilhelm (Arnold's dog).

Shooting Stars Everywhere was pretty good but I would have preferred there not have been swearing used. This book was a pretty good mystery, and I thought the anonymous letters were pretty cool to read. I did not identify myself with Victor much since he was a boy and his parents were divorced, and I did not care for the swearing, but it was still an enjoyable book. I recommend Shooting Stars Everywhere to kids ten years old and up.
