Amazing Book!

Review by Aliyah

Lauren Horowitz and Tara Buchanan have always been inseparable. When they decide to audition for the school play, Lauren wonders if for once, maybe she’ll get to outshine Tara, instead of the other way around. When Tara is cast as the lead, Lauren should be happy for her, right? But how can she be when the teacher told her she wasn’t cast as the lead because she didn’t look American enough? I loved this book about friendship, acceptance, being different, and one of my favorite things, music. I highly recommend this wonderful book to anyone who loves acting, singing, or is just looking for a great read that has heart, comedy, and just the right amount of a ghost story.

Review by ILoveNewBooks

This story is about a girl who doesn't get a good role in the school play because she doesn't look "American". Read this amazing book to find out what happens.
