Child Star

Author(s): Brian "Box" Brown

Young Adult Graphic Novels

Child star Owen Eugene had it all: a hit sitcom on prime time, a Saturday morning cartoon, and a memoir on the bestseller list. The secret to his success was his talent for improvisation . . . and his small size. But Hollywood ate him alive. On screen he made the whole world laugh, even as his life fell apart behind the scenes.Inspired by real-life child stars, Box Brown created Owen Eugene, a composite character whose tragic life is an amalgam of 1980s pop culture. In this fictional documentary-style graphic novel, we see how growing up in the spotlight robs young actors of a true childhood.
