Props are important, and so is making thunder and closing curtains. Junebug takes these jobs very seriously: The Blue Moon is a serious playhouse, and her parents’ pride and joy. But lately the stagehand mindset—go unnoticed, don’t say a word, be as invisible as you can—is applying to Junebug’s life offstage as well. And that’s not a role she’s happy with.

As Junebug starts speaking up—about her sister’s ego, about the weird kid on staff, about her mom’s abrupt departure, and about her father’s new leading lady—she begins to realize that it’s hard to work without a script...and that sometimes scenes play out in ways that aren’t intended.

About the Author:

Heather Henson lives on a farm in Kentucky with her husband and three children, and is the author of several critically acclaimed picture books and novels, including the Christopher Award–winning That Book Woman and Dream of Night.

From Booklist:

Junebug loves theatrical tragedy and dreams of being a revered stage actress one day. But the lineup at her parents’ summer stock theater falls well short of her expectations. June is replaced as prop woman by an awkward boy, her ingénue older sister leaves her with all the grunt work, her mother moves out, and her dad seems overly interested in the new leading lady. June embraces the line “I am in mourning for my life” as her mantra, and mopes about the theater trying to figure out where exactly she fits in. Each chapter begins with an account of how June wishes things were, before telling the reader “how it is.” By the book’s end, though, June finds that she wasn’t really seeing things as clearly as she thought after all. Readers unfamiliar with theater conventions will need to adjust to how plays appear in print (including stage directions, and names appearing in all capital letters), but June’s narration is heartfelt, and the many theatrical details provide a unique frame for this gentle story about family and personal growth. Grades 5-7. --Heather Booth
