Synopses & Reviews
Stereotypes, sexuality, and destructive rumors collide in this smart YA novel for fans of Sara Zarrs Story of a Girl, Siobhan Vivians The List, and E. Lockharts The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks.
When Rebecca Rivers lands the lead in her schools production of The Crucible, she gets to change roles in real life, too. She casts off her old reputation, grows close with her four rowdy cast-mates, and kisses the extremely handsome Charlie Lamb onstage. Even Mr. McFadden, the plays critical director, can find no fault with Rebecca.
Though The Essential Five” vow never to date each other, Rebecca cant help her feelings for Charlie, leaving her both conflicted and lovestruck. But the on and off-stage drama of the cast is eclipsed by a life-altering accusation that threatens to destroy everything
even if some of it is just make believe.
