Jessica Leigh is a Hollywood-bound actress—sure she’s only eight years old and she lives in the tiny historic city of New Bern, N.C. But Jessica’s been taking voice lessons since she was six, and she’s sure it’s her turn to get a lead in the kids’ musical at the local theater. If only other people would stop messing up her plans.
First Miss Roberson, the new director, doesn’t think she’s old enough for the role she wants, so she makes Jessica a co-director instead. Then her school friend gets the lead in the play, but her theater friend just gets a small part in the ensemble. To top it all off, mysterious things are happening in the old theater, and Jessica has to figure it out before her theater family gets hurt.
It’s going to take everything she’s got to get through this musical with her friendships intact, but Jessica is sure she can do it. Entirely.
