--Terry Gamble, author of The Water Dancers From Diane Hammond, author of Hannah's Dream, comes Seeing Stars, a glorious new novel of hope, dreams, love, and ambition. Set in Hollywood--where every child wants to be a star and every grownup wants a piece of the action--Seeing Stars explores a not-so glamorous world of stage mothers, adolescent Tinsel Town wannabes, and desperate chances with warmth and wit.
Praise For Seeing Stars…
“With razor-sharp insight, Hammond grabs us by the wrist and dives into the child-actor world....[a]n untarnished look at the spoils of fame, the residue of unbridled longing and the lengths too many go to for those 15 minutes of marquee-made joy.”
-The Oregonian (Portland)
