Praise for THE PERFECT STAR: "Buyea's inspirational style is in
full force . . . lots to enjoy here." --Booklist "Topics of
varying seriousness are addressed through various characters' point
of view . . . . all are eventually open to reconciliation,
difference is ultimately celebrated, and effort determines the
ability to bring about positive change." -- Kirkus
