Overview

"Dara's larger-than-life personality and true-to-life middle grade issues command center stage until the curtain falls." --School Library Journal, Starred Review

Dara Palmer is destined to be a star, and she's writing herself the role of a lifetime.

Dara longs for stardom--but when she isn't cast in her middle school's production of The Sound of Music, she get suspicious. It can't be because she's not the best. She was born to be a famous movie star. It must because she's adopted from Cambodia and doesn't look like a typical fraulein. (That's German for girl.)

So irrepressible Dara comes up with a genius plan to shake up the school: write a play about her own life. Then she'll have to be the star.
