How to Stage a Catastrophe by Rebecca Donnelly @CapstoneYR @CapstonePub
ACT 1: The Juicebox Theater is about ready for the recycling bin.
ACT 2: Sidney and Folly consider a crime. [You have to read it to see if we commit a crime, that's called suspense.]
ACT 3: Sidney and Folly save the Juicebox Children's Theater! [It's not giving anything away to tell you that. We don't want you to worry.] Sidney Camazzola plans to be the director of the Juicebox Theater when he grows up.
But the theater is in danger of closing, and he and his friends know they need a plan to save it - and fast. Hilarious and heartwarming, the mission to save a failing community theater unites a riotous cast of characters in this offbeat middle-grade novel.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's review- As an adult is was hard for me to enjoy the book, it was way past what I thought even a middle school child would really be entertained buy. The whole story is pretty much laid out on the back cover and that was not the best choice for a book. There are a few more things included but it will really capture the youngest kids, but only if they can read and understand the words. It is also written a bit like a play which throws the story into a different direction from a good paced full read.
