Stars in Their Eyes
Jessica Walton and Aśka
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?
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.
Give me all the nerdiness, all the love, and all the cracking visuals.
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.
