    For some strange reason I suddenly remembered this book today, and how much I loved it As a drama kid, I enjoyed reading about the whole putting on a show thing It was also likely the first book I read with gay characters I distinctly remember a scene with a sleeping bag which I found terribly romantic I checked to see if it was in our library system so I could re read it, but sadly, it wasn t.

    A long time favorite of mine Written in 1983, taking place in the MC s junior year of high school, and revolving around her high school s production of A Midsummer Night s Dream Despite the age, this doesn t feel dated, despite the lack of anymodern technology A fairly diverse and relatable collection of characters.

    This is one of those 10 5 star books for me A little known book, which is a pity because it s brilliantly written, I discovered this book when I was in high school and have read it several times a year since then Wish it would come back in to print.
