School's out, but the drama never stops at the superposh Orion Academy. Hartley Blackstone — the famous director, producer, choreographer, and genuine Broadway icon — has chosen Orion to hold auditions for one lucky guy and girl to attend his summer theater program in New York City.

Naturally, every wannabe-It girl and boy at Orion is going mad,

The cast from Orion is back in a sequel to Paul Ruditis' first DRAMA! story, THE FOUR DOROTHYS. Bryan, Sam, Hope, Holly, Alexis, and Belinda are all prepared for their next "big scene."

The school year is over for those at Orion, but just because academics are done does not mean acting is. During summer break a yearly, mandatory two-week theater camp begins, but instead of establishing a play, something new comes along.

Hartley Blackstone, a Broadway director, is using the two weeks to test all theater majors for a summer apprenticeship. To get this apprenticeship could be two lucky Orion students' big break.

During week one, everyone studies their individual monologues and performs for Hartley. After the performances, Mr. Blackstone critiques everyone's work, leaving nothing but shattered spirits. Now no one wants to go on with auditions.

In week two, Hope and her boyfriend are broken up. Done. Over. Which leads Bryan and Sam to hatch a plan to get Hope and her (ex) boyfriend back together.

This plan will take a lot of time away from Bryan once group auditions start. Will they be prepared? Who will win the summer apprenticeship?

Paul Ruditis' second DRAMA! book is very good. The whole time I was reading I thought, "this is like American Idol meets The Real World" (due to the singing and all of the drama in the book). I felt the story lacked a little in the middle, but was overall interesting to the end.

An excellent sequal to the first book. Loved it!
