Publisher Comments:

For months, Cass has heard her best friend, Julia, whisper about a secret project. When Julia dies in a car accident, her drama friends decide to bring the project?a musical called Totally Sweet Ninja Death Squad?to fruition. But Cass isn't a drama person. She can?t take a summer of painting sets, and she won?t spend long hours with Heather, the girl who made her miserable all through middle school and has somehow landed the leading role. So Cass takes off. In alternating chapters, she spends the first part of summer on a cross-country bike trip and the rest swallowing her pride, making props, and?of all things?falling for Heather.

This is a story of the breadth of love. Of the depth of friendship. And of the most hilarious musical one quiet suburb has ever seen.

Synopsis:

For months, Cass has heard Julia talk about a secret project. But when Julia dies, her drama friends want to bring the project--a musical--to fruition, and they want Cass to help. Cass isn't a drama person, so she spends the summer on a journey of self-discovery.

Maybe I'm just a sucker for a good coming out story, but I was really charmed by this book. The characters, even the secondary ones, are well fleshed out, so even as they stand out as quirky individuals, they don't come across as weird for weirdness' sake. Cass' emotional journey was told in a nuanced and believable way that makes me really root for her, particularly in the interplay between her and her erstwhile nemesis, Heather. A recommended read, even for those beyond the Young Adult years.
