Midwest Book Review (3rd review)

 "A. Kidd cultivates a special sense of magic  in chronicling Julia's struggles against the odds. To call it a fantasy alone would be to do it an injustice: The Healing Star is as much a story of a young girl's efforts to achieve the impossible as it is the tale of a town steeped in the magic and legend of stardust and the potentials and consequences of seemingly unreachable dreams." –D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer
