Callie loves theater. And while she would totally try out for her middle school’s production of Moon Over Mississippi, she’s a terrible singer. Instead she’s the set designer for the stage crew, and this year she’s determined to create a set worthy of Broadway on a middle-school budget. But how can she, when she doesn’t know much about carpentry, ticket sales are down, and the crew members are having trouble working together? Not to mention the onstage AND offstage drama that occurs once the actors are chosen, and when two cute brothers enter the picture, things get even crazier!
Ok, so one of the best parts of this book is the illustrations. But... I also just LOVE the characters! They are all so different and fun: not the most popular people at school, but the most interesting.
There isn't much else to say except that I highly recommend this book! It's a bit different from normal all-text books, and if you just want a quick read that is actually quite nice, this is the way to go.
