Seventh grader Callie Marin loves drama. Ever since she saw her first play as a little girl, she's been crazy about the theater. And now she's in charge of set design for her school's spring production of Moon Over Mississippi!

But Callie's got tons to deal with before opening night. The boy she's been crushing on since second grade is on again/off again with the play's leading lady. She's become besties with identical twin brothers. One is kind of cute; the other has his own boy crush. And the cannon she's built for the play's big moment just won't fire. What's a girl to do?

With a focus on friendships, first crushes, and finding a place in the often confusing world of adolescence, this is a fast-paced and engaging story that will appeal to readers from all walks of middle-school life.
