“Zadoff captures the confusion, torn loyalties, and overwrought drama of high school life–not to mention student theater. All the world’s a stage indeed, and these players earn their applause.” –Publishers Weekly
There’s life and death. And then there’s theater.
High school sophomore Adam Zeigler thought the best way to live life was behind the spotlight. When his father died two years ago, Adam retreated into the world of the theater, ultimately winning a coveted place on the theater crew and finding (what he thought) was his place in the world, high above the theater floor in the lighting grid.
But then a young actress, Summer, appeared in his view. Instantly smitten, Adam is determined to win her over. But to do so, he’ll have to defy his best friend and break the golden rule of his school: techies and actors don’t mix.
Set against the backdrop of a high school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the book is a theater story, a love story, and a bromance in one. The complexities of life, death, and high school are revealed as Adam struggles to find the courage to step out of the shadows and into the light.
A classic tale of love, loss, and theater--for drama lovers and non-drama lovers alike.
