Reviews for Stage Fright

Booklist Reviews 2009 October #1
"Allie initially longs for the lead in the fourth-grade class play, Princess Penelope in the Realm of Recycling, but soon wonders whether the conventional princess role is what she really wants. Coaching from Uncle Jay helps her shine onstage, while dealing with classmates helps her discover a few new "rules for girls." Written in a convincingly childlike voice, Allie's appealing first-person narrative features wry observations of the foibles, actions, emotions, and relationships of both the children and the adults in her life. Another entertaining entry in the Allie Finkle's Rules for Girls series." Copyright 2009 Booklist Reviews.
