“I LOVE LESTER.”—Linda Urban, author of Milo Speck, Accidental Agent and A Crooked Kind of Perfect

For fans of Fish in a Tree and Wonder, Mandy Davis’s uplifting debut follows space-obsessed Lester Musselbaum as he experiences the challenges of his first days of public middle school: making friends, facing bullies, finding his "thing," and accidentally learning of his autism-spectrum diagnosis.

Lester’s first days as a fifth grader at Quarry elementary school are not even a little bit like he thought they would bethe cafeteria is too loud for Lester's ears, there are too many kids, and then there's the bully.

Lester was always home-schooled, and now he’s shocked to be stuck in a school where everything just seems wrong. That's until he hears about the science fair, which goes really well for Lester! This is it. The moment where I find out for 100 percent sure that I won.

But then things go a bit sideways, and Lester has to find his way back. A touching peek into the life of a sensitive autism-spectrum boy facing the everydayness of middle school, Superstar testifies that success is the combination of passion, determination, and hard work.
