Dani’s parents have just separated, and she moved with her
mom to a new town. Not only does she live with her grumpy
grandparents now, she also has to start at a new school. Dani
pretends that she was a popular drama club star at her old
school and starts to attract new, cool friends. Can she keep up
her lies forever, or will she totally blow her cover?
“Straight-forward narrative best suited to emerging chapter-book readers.” —Booklist
“The reading level will appeal to both younger readers and struggling older middle graders…This brief book’s pat message: Be yourself.” —Kirkus
About the Author:
J.M. Klein is a former journalist who has lived all around the country and moved half a dozen times. Like Dani, she learned how to make new friends and tried out for the school play. She didn’t make that play, but she did develop a lifelong love of theater and now has good friends in many states. She’s always written in diaries and journals, the contents of which are still totally secret.
