"The short stories themselves, each of which is memorable for unique characters and situations, spotlight the importance of the arts in the growth and developmentand even the survival!of a large portion of the teenage population. Complex and focused on far more than art as a high-school extracurricular. Starry-Eyed breaks a leg' in the finest sense of the word.”
Booklist starred review
"Under the hubbub of the theater world are themes that deal with common teenage issues such as insecurity, jealousy, the fear of coming out and young love. Definitely worthy of applause."
"...especially appealing to teens with a personal interest in the performance arts, and those who enjoy stories of teen romance, which are prominent in the collection."
