Maisie has always dreamed of meeting her hero, Kara Bufano, an amputee actor who plays a kick-arse amputee character in her favourite show. Fancon is big and exciting and exhausting. Then she meets Ollie, a cute volunteer who she has a lot in common with. Could this be the start of something, or will her mum, who doesn’t seem to know what boundaries are, embarrass her before she and Ollie have a chance?

PRAISE FOR THE BOOK

‘Stars in Their Eyes is a captivating graphic novel with a beautiful art style, a diverse and inclusive cast and a fluffy like-at-first-sight romance that will have fans miss conventions and meet cutes to boot.’ Nerd Daily

‘Give me all the nerdiness, all the love, and all the cracking visuals.’ AU Review

‘I really enjoyed reading Stars in Their Eyes. I found it really sweet, fun, and relatable, especially as a queer and neurodivergent con-goer and nerd (with an embarrassing mum!), and I think others will too.’ Clare, age 15, Kids’ Reading Guide

Stars in Their Eyes is a very necessary story, representing the various ways we love each other and the diversity of the bodies we inhabit. As storytellers, Jessica Walton and Aśka invite us to see that it’s our daily interactions, and our ways of communicating with each other, that will create a more accessible future.’ Reading Time
