Ages: 8 to 12
Dara Palmer knows for a fact that she was meant to be on stage. But when The Sound of Music is selected for the school musical, Dara isn't cast as Maria—or at all. She can't help but wonder: is it because she's different? Maybe it's because she was adopted from Cambodia and doesn't look like a typical fraulein…
So irrepressible Dara comes up with a grand scheme to shake the school: write her own play about her own life. Then she'll have to be the star.
