"Lester's first-person narrative is honest and pure." Kirkus (starred review)

Perfect for fans of Fish in a Tree and Wonder, this uplifting debut novel from Mandy David follows space-obsessed Lester Musselbaum as he experiences the challenges of his first days of public 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 elementary school, Superstar testifies that what you can do isn't nearly as important as who you are.

"A lovely, heartfelt narrative about the things we've lost, and the things we've found again." Gary D. Schmidt, Newbery Honor winner for The Wednesday Wars

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