Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
For her 10th birthday, Rebecca receives a brand-new hat and an exciting opportunity—the chance to visit a real movie studio set with her cousin, Max. Although her parents do not approve of actors or movies, Mama finally gives Rebecca permission to go. At the movie studio, Rebecca steps behind the scenes and learns exactly how movies are produced. Best of all, Rebecca meets the beautiful and glamorous Lily Armstrong, a famous actress whose movie, "Cleopatra," is showing in theaters around the United States, but as the cameras roll, Rebecca seems destined to remain on the sidelines. Suddenly, the director needs a young girl for an upcoming scene. Will Rebecca finally step into the spotlight? Could this be her chance to become a star? While Rebecca wants to step into the film, she is not sure that her parents will approve of her aspirations to be a movie star. After all, Papa and Mama see Rebecca as a future teacher. Rebecca realizes the importance of taking her fate into her own hands and decides to step into the spotlight. In this upbeat story, young readers will explore a film studio of the early 1900s through the eyes of a character, Rebecca, who is destined to win the hearts of "American Girl" series fans around the country.
