When sixteen-year-old Janie Myers' grades hit an all-time low, she is pulled from her blow-off class with her best friend and placed into a course the guidance counselor says will boost her confidence: theater. There, she meets a group of theater "misfits" who accept her into their troupe.  Armed with a full troupe of actors, the misfit theater company takes on a one act that will not only challenge Janie's shyness, but also her feelings for fellow misfit Thatcher.

If only we were presented with extra curricular activities like theatre in my previous school. To be real, I'd be timid to even be considered, and to even join
I have Theatre Arts class and it is AMAZING so I like that you decided to theme your book off of it.

Urgh! I can feel myself getting anxious for the character. This is probably my worst nightmare as well 😢😢😢
Here but I'm new to whole thing and I'm so nervous because next spring and winter I have a lead in both and I really don't want to mess up
