ABOUT THE BOOK: A contemporary “clean teen” coming-of-age story about a small-town girl who opens her eyes to life’s endless possibilities

When Penny wins a scholarship to a prestigious theater camp, she thinks it’s the start of a perfect summer. But when she arrives at camp, Penny is thrust into a world of competition and self-doubt. And as she meets new friends, including Chase, a talented young actor with big-city dreams, she begins to realize that her own dreams may be bigger than she ever imagined.
“Theater buffs will enjoy the descriptions of Penny’s acting classes and her audition scenes. A worthy recommendation for fans of Sarah Dessen’s The Moon and More (2013).” -Booklist
“Engaging and enjoyable.” -School Library Journal
