Shai Williams was born to be a star (or a veterinarian - and maybe a dentist). She attends a special elementary school for the performing arts, and her grandma Rosa and aunt Mac-N-Cheese are both actresses. So Shai is shocked when she doesn't get the lead role in the third grade musical. Instead the part goes to the new girl, Gabby Supreme, who thinks she is better than everyone else.
To add insult to injury, Ms. Gremillion has now asked Shai to help Gabby with the role. Shai reluctantly agrees and enlists Emmie to help, but Gabby isn't going to make it easy. As opening night draws near, Shai discovers that making a new friend is sometimes like putting on a show - it requires dedication, patience, and lots and lots of practice.

Quvenzhane Wallis adds another talent to her CV
Good 1st book aimed at 8-12 year olds by the multi talented teenage role model that is Quvenzhane Wallis (she also narrates the audio book version in a clear, confident and pleasant manner). A good genuine story of friendship and family as a Shai copes with the ups and downs of school life whilst trying to attain her own dreams and goals.
