I read this one as part of an idea I had for new_atalanta. And it was cheap. And not quite as painful as listening to a Nikki Webster album.

Star Calloway is a 14 year old mega pop star with a secret. Her family disappeared on a boat trip just before Star became famous. But life is okay now. She has lots of money that she can lavish on her grandmother, and she's about to head out on her first tour. But there's evil press and adoring fans to deal with, not to mention her nasty rival, and the way everything keeps going wrong.

This book might appeal to some 8 year olds, who are standing in front of their mirrors and singing into hairbrushes. Star's life seems pretty good, there's no real hard work, and everyone she works with is so nice. Parents would like it too - Star's got a crush on a boy, but it's all very sweet. And there's a big emphais on Star acting like a girl, rather than a Britney look-alike (just wait until she grows up and gets married to one of her back up dancers.)

Basically the book is good for snarkiness for adults, and might appeal to some young girls. But it is fairly well written, though I could see the villian a mile away. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689867875, Paperback)

When you're reaching for the stars, nothing can hold you back.

Star Calloway is fourteen years old, and she's the most famous pop star in the world. Her album has topped the charts, her video is all the rage, and she's about to start her world tour. There's only one thing that keeps her life from being perfect: Star's parents and baby brother have been missing for two years, and no one knows what happened to them.

Still, Star knows her family would want her to be happy, and performing means everything to her. But with so many mysterious things going wrong in preparation for the tour, could the show be over before it begins?
