From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9 Forget the title: this is not a "Sweet Valley High" type story. This British import is sensitive, thought provoking, and poignant as it follows a 13 year old through the several months of rehearsal and performance of a play. Francie is one of six chosen from her all-girls school to participate in a production staged by a nearby boys school. The rivalries, jealousies, comraderies, and first loves that form among the members of the cast are compelling and believable in this nicely paced story. Francie deals with the triumphs and injustices of life with peers and parents. Two scenes involving the death of an old family dog are particularly striking and moving. One jarring note is the rather casual approach that Francie and her family seem to have about discipline. Francie's beer drinking and attendance at an unchaperoned party until 2 a.m. are accepted with very little question. This is a well crafted and rewarding story, but be prepared to "sell" it. It will book-talk very well. Trish Ebbatson, Delaware County District Library, Ohio
