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?

Catherine Hapka has never dressed up as a Christmas Genie, but she always enjoys the holiday season nonetheless. She has written more than one hundred and fifty books for children and young adults. In addition to reading and writing, she enjoys horseback riding, animals of all kinds, gardening, music, and traveling. She lives on a small farm in Chester County, Pennsylvania, with a couple of horses, three goats, a small flock of chickens, and too many cats.From School Library Journal:
Grade 4-7–This new series about a 14-year-old pop star is candy-coated popcorn that some preteens will gobble up. Star, a former unknown who lived in Pennsylvania with her grandmother, has hit the top of the charts. She doesn't seem to practice much. She succeeds easily and has created a family from her adoring manager, her tutor, her bodyguard, her stylist, and her dog. She deals with her parents' and preschool brother's tragic disappearance with sunny optimism that they will be found. If only the detectives that Star has hired could find her family, if the evil media would go away and her jealous rivals wouldn't pull mean-spirited stunts, she could live happily ever after. In the first book, Eddie Urbane, one of her competitors, kidnaps her pug, Dudley Do Wrong. In the second book, the other top reigning pop princess, Jade, and her irascible manager bristle about a comment that Star makes that gets misquoted and media hell breaks loose. It leads to the publicizing of her family's disappearance and adds some necessary tension to these otherwise bland offerings. Readers who don't want to think too much will love these books.–Tina Zubak, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
