About the Author

One of the most popular authors of all time, V.C. Andrews has been a bestselling phenomenon since the publication of her spellbinding classic Flowers in the Attic. That blockbuster novel began her thrilling Dollanganger family saga, which includes Petals on the Wind, If There Be Thorns, Seeds of Yesterday, and Garden of Shadows. Since then, readers have been captivated by more than forty novels in V.C. Andrews' bestselling series. Shooting Stars, the newest V.C. Andrews series, features Cinnamon, Ice, Rose, Honey, and Falling Stars. V.C. Andrews' novels have sold more than ninety million copies and been translated into sixteen foreign languages.

From AudioFile

In the fifth of Andrews's Shooting Stars series, two actors, two musicians, a dancer, and a singer meet as new students at Senetsky's School of the Performing Arts, located in a gothic mansion in New York City. Former stage star Madame S. is a wizard at turning the merely gifted into the fabulously famous, using iron discipline. But when Honey Forman, a violinist who serves as the story's narrator, sees what she thinks is a Peeping Tom outside her window and investigates, she uncovers glamorous deceit. Laurel Lefkow's range of accents adds color to the story and raises the listener's anticipation as the voices of young innocence clash shatteringly with those of adult arrogance and ambition.

Just be warned that many irrelevant events happen that'll put question marks on your head when you're done with the book.

The ending is a bit anti-climactic, which is annoying, but since the rest of the story is brilliant I won't nit-pick.

I really love the old series, but the newer ones have been disappointments, with the 'stars' series being the biggest disappointment. The story was predictable, uninteresting and shallow. It was written like a scooby-doo episode.

This book is very cheesy. If you don't like cheesy books, I'd avoid this one if I were you. Like many Virginia Andrews books (the originals and the new ones), it is pure cheddar.
Personally, I don't mind cheese as long as it's well-plotted cheese with interesting characters, and this book definitely doesn't let me down here (on the character front, Cinnamon has become a goth, which is funny). It has a plot that, generally speaking, isn't lifted from one of the other books (they do that sometimes when they think you aren't looking), and although the narrator can be a bit of a whinger at times, the other characters more than make up for that.
If you've read the other mini-series, you will know that it might be best to skip the first four books (which are mainly about introducing characters rather than having a plot) and go onto the main book. For all three miniseries, I bought all five books. Learn from my mistakes.
This isn't exactly as good as the main books from "Orphans" and "Wildflowers," but it's nearly there. The ending is a bit anti-climactic, which is annoying, but since the rest of the story is brilliant I won't nit-pick. Read this book and bask in the glory of cheese.

It ended too suddenly; there's not even a "what happened to everyone" epilogue as in the other miniseries finalies. And what's with the GW and the artist? Can they not decide what these girls look like? Cinnamon now has coal-black hair? Most of the girls' characters are pretty blah, with the exception of Cinnamon. There's the gratuitous near-rape scene, and an almost-incest scene (the GW usually finds a way to make sure the participants aren't blood-related). It did keep me reading until the end, and then it was just...over. All in all, another disappointing effort. When will I learn?

Ok. The whole shooting stars miniseries has been the worst one yet. And I thought it couldn't get worse than the Orphans. This book was so shallow and predictable. The characters were flat and immature. I thought that there would be more romance but Honey only sees her boyfriend once.
This story had so much potential but when I found out who the person upstairs really was and what had happened to her I couldn't beleive what cheap material they were using! I can't beleive the family allowed this to be printed. Better luck next time.

I hated this book. I miss the old V.C. Andrews books, sure the pattern was getting old, but at least they were interesting. This series isn't even up to the usual miniseries standard, much less the regular standard. All of the characters were boring and the ending was fake and unreal when usually at the end of the last book of a series is so sweet and/or sad that it makes me cry. Avoid this at all cost!!!!!

I loved The Orphans. I liked The Wildflowers. But Shooting Stars were the weakest of the miniseries. I usually turn to these V.C. Andrews GW because they're cliched and sappy with a tang of mystery - a guilty pleasure book. I could've guessed everything that happened pages before the ending but "Falling Stars" was slow. How many times do we have to hear how Honey picks up her violin and "escapes" thinking of her Uncles and family and how much she's loved and then - viola! Beautiful music! From how the book described the girls' lessons and living accomidations, one would've thought it was a fun gala. There was NO pressure in the Senetsky school as the back of the book describes. Maybe Honey wasn't complimented each time she played her violin and couldn't see her boyfriend each day, but that's the price of for fame! The ending was a waste and there was unclarity about Madame Senetsky's mystery. There wasn't even a good epilouge on what happened to each of the girls as a reviewer said earlier. Overall, the girls' personality were one-dimensional and boring, the boys in the school were stretched to be annoying to the limits, but it's a breezy read nonetheless. Nothing too interesting, nothing too boring to put you to sleep. Just be warned that many irrelevant events happen that'll put question marks on your head when you're done with the book.

I liked the book Falling Stars. I liked the way it brought all types of backgrounds together as one family setting. If you had read Cinnamon, Ice, Rose, and Honey you would know how different all of the charaters really were. They all had to go through, or had gone through some rough times to get to the point where they were.I think V.C. Andrews gave everyone a type of situtation that they could relate to in one way or another. I liked the fact that the students all except one of course, {Howard} stayed together as one. I got the feeling that the students were telling Ms.Senetsky that no matter how bad you think things are if you are open and honest with people you can make things right. I really liked the feeling that I got when I finished this book.I felt that you can make a difference no matter how small people may make you feel. No doubt Ms. Senestky had alot to try and hide, but if she had just been open from the start there would be no reason to try to hide her daughter from the world in which she lived. Gerta did nothing wrong and if the public could not accept her I would not want to be in their spotlight.
