    This is my favorite book!

    I received a new book (for a Christmas gift)from the Barnes & Noble store near here several years ago. Although I am "of a certain age", I thought it was wonderful, as I am a true theater lover. (The book is meant for middle school youth.) When my 11 year old granddaughter was in a school play recently, I wanted to buy a new copy for her but there were none left. So I went online and purchased a used copy for her. It was in excellent condition and she was thrilled with the book.
