“Review. A Shining Star gives an inside look into a suburban high school. The political misogyny and petty jealousies are behind the scenes in a place we are all familiar with but actually know little about. What at first seems benign can actually be dangerous.

Well rounded background and peopled with interesting characters this book is absorbing and engaging. It will keep you guessing until the final reveal.” .
