View all copies of this ISBN edition:
The Cruiser, the alternative newspaper published by Zander and his crew of middle school misfits, is alive and well. And now there’s plenty to report on when LaShonda, one of the Cruisers, steps into the spotlight with her costume designs for an upcoming play. LaShonda’s designs get rave reviews, but she soon learns that show business is filled with challenges and choices. LaShonda is forced to consider what’s more important — fame or loyalty to her autistic brother. Whether she gets a standing ovation or the curtain pulled down on her is up to LaShonda. And she can’t help but wonder if the Cruisers have got her back and will be there for her whether she’s center stage or waiting in the wings.

From A Star Is Born: A Cruisers Novel

"I don't want them to wear my costumes again," LaShonda said. "As far as I'm concerned, they can go on naked."

"You can't do that, LaShonda Powell!" Mr. Culpepper was already turning a fifth shade of red. "There will be NO nudity involved with any students from Da Vinci!"

"Then you better cancel the whole performance!" LaShonda was getting up close and personal, and Kambui was trying to get in between them.

"This is . . . this is . . . the chance of a lifetime, young lady." Our assistant principal was beginning to sputter, and Kambui was practically dragging LaShonda out of the door.

Bobbi McCall was in tears. Yes, tough-as-nails Bobbi was on the verge of a major boo-hoo.

"What's going on?" I asked Bobbi in the hallway. "I thought LaShonda was doing great."

"She was," Bobbi said. "Until they told her that if she took the scholarship they would have to separate her from her brother. No way she's doing that, Zander. And the Cruisers have to back her up!"

I knew the play we were going to put on again would put the Cruisers on the map big-time, especially with all the noise about LaShonda's costumes. But if we blew it after all the press coverage they wouldn't be able to dig a hole deep enough for us to crawl in!

I was getting nervous.
