Description

Acclaimed author Holly Schindler writes a compelling contemporary tale with a dash of magic. The theater comes to life in this story of family ties, fate, love, and one girl's quest to rewrite history.

The local Avery Theater was just a run-down building to Quin--until her mother told her about the tragic love that played out on the theater's stage many years ago. Quin is convinced it's the perfect story to re-create for her drama class. And when she does, the Avery begins to magically regain its former splendor, clearly setting the stage for her classmates Dylan and Cass to relive the romance from a time before. Quin can see the spark between them, but it's up to her to make sure her friends--and the Avery--can both be saved this time around.

Review quote

"Rooted in magic realism, this sweet story faintly echoes Romeo and Juliet as it explores what it means to be a survivor, a bystander, and a member of a small community. Schindler's story casts a shimmering spell."--Booklist "An innocent, hopeful, lightly magical romance, ideal for teens looking for "clean reads" and historical nostalgia."--School Library Journal "Scenes set in the past are rich with authentic voices and period detail, and crisp prose flows easily between the past and the present. A tale of love, family, and friendship, tailor-made for readers who believe in the mystery and magic of the theater."--Kirkus Reviews
