Miranda and the Moviesby Jane F. Kendall, Jane Kendall
Nothing exciting ever happens in Leewood Heights, New Jersey, home of Miranda Gaines. But in 1914 an unusual troupe of characters rents the house next door, and Miranda falls into a scene straight out of silent movie comedies. In fact, her fall from a tree lands her in the middle of the fledgling movie industry and opens up a whole new world to the headstrong preteen. Miranda and the Movies introduces Miranda Gaines, an endearing and funny heroine-and offers a colorful look at the early days of American filmmaking. 4-1/2 X 7.

This book is soooo great. I found it in my local library and had my nose stuck in it the rest of the day! I really like the part where she falls out of the tree! This shows the problems of trying to film a movie in the early 19 hundres.
