The promise of extra credit in English class pushes a nervous Julep to audition for the school play. But after flubbing her tryout, she ends up at the bottom of the list for stage crew. How humiliating! Just as she’s about to quit the play altogether, Julep suddenly finds herself promoted to assistant director. Finally, Julep has found something she’s really good at: leadership. Then, just weeks before the play is set to open, everything comes crashing down. Can Julep find a way to put her newly discovered talent to work?

Another hilarious and heartwarming adventure starring the spunky middle-grader Julep O’Toole!

A step above the typical tween series. Not as much fun as, say, Raisin Rodriguez or The Princess Diaries, but still an enjoyable read. Parts made me laugh out loud. Read full review
