Many thanks to Russ Brown for his expert illustration of the front cover.

Beatrice thinks she has no acting talent but that doesn’t stop her from auditioning for the annual middle school play. She has two missions-winning the role of Pocahontas (which guarantees her popularity with the cool kids, at least in her mind) and grabbing the attention of her estranged father. Easy! Except a new girl from Japan shows up and ruins everything! So begins Beatrice’s diabolical and hilarious plan to scare away the visitor. Beatrice is sometimes sarcastic, sometimes very funny and always honest. This is a great book for those who love theater and every part of it–the good, the bad and the crazy!
