Book 14

Mallory in the Spotlight

Mallory is super excited when she tries out for the school musical and is cast as the lead! But not everyone shares her enthusiasm, especially her best friend Mary Ann. In fact, the more excited Mallory gets, the less excited Mary Ann becomes. Mallory can’t understand why her friend is acting so strange. Even though the lights are shining bright, is there something Mallory isn’t seeing? And can she find a way to play the roles of leading lady and best friend?

    When I got the part of Annie, I thought all of the drama would be onstage. But there’s even more offstage. Anger. Jealousy. Tears. One misunderstanding after another. Hopefully the curtain falls on this performance soon!   Mallory McDonald—Mallory in the Spotlight
