Play It Again, Mallory

To make matters worse, she is assigned to play the tuba which isn’t the instrument she wants. Everyone else seems to be having fun in music, dance and drama, but Mallory is dreading performing in the final showcase. And it’s coming up fast! Can her friends, family, and teacher help her find the “magic” that makes playing music fun?
