"I loved that the author captured the sights, sounds, and feel of the theatre. The characters are interesting and I became invested in them. The best friends, one changing, is classic and most middle school kids will identify with this. It felt real. The song parodies were amazing. I worked with a comedy troupe that did song parodies and these were spot on! I loved that Ms. Stevens recommend that you pull up the original songs on your computer, then you can sing along. They were 'brilliant'. This was a very well written novel. I enjoyed it!" - Writer's Digest Self-Published Book Award judge
"This was so entertaining. It reads just like a script, and includes links to music that goes with the book, read this in one sitting! This would be a great book to use a guide for high school theatre teachers, maybe they could use the story and get ideas for their own plays or just let the students read this and have discussions. I think young readers can relate to this story whether they are in theater or not, friends, bully's, and making it to end of high school, makes for a good story along with the play and music." - Shannon on goodreads
"[This] book entwines mystery with friendship, trust, confusion, love and overall drama. I thought this one was more Glee-like which didn't appeal to me as much, however I still greatly enjoyed the story and the mystery that the 'bully-storyline' created. The discrimination towards Foster is handled with dexterity and is very relevant in today's world...the book was a little short however for younger readers, it is the perfect length to keep the attention and to pull the reader along to the very last page! Brilliant, and definitely worth a read if you love theatre!" -mylittlebookblog

Like the first book, it entwines a plot of mystery and romance around the production of an original musical/play. The characters are developed further; they are so real.
I thought the connection between the bullying in the "real life" of the characters and its portrayal in the musical they were producing was brilliant and very relevant in today's world. Stevens tackles tough topics such as bullying and sexual orientation with finesse and without preaching to the readers. She presents these topics not only from the point of view of the student, but also the opinions (right or wrong) of teachers, parents and strangers.
As in the first book, I would have loved to read a longer story. The length and pace of the book is great for a teen audience.
PS- I hope that some day the original musical in this book makes it to our local stage.
