Kristen and her family have just moved to New York City, which is a good thing for her because she's always dreamed of being on Broadway!

But Kristen soon finds out that not everything is easy or glitzy in the Big Apple. She has to make new friends, get used to a new school, and become accustomed to a whole new way of life. And of course, there are the auditions. Kristen never had any trouble with them before, but with a higher level of competition, and a growing number of rejections, will she be able to live out her dream? Read on and find out!

~My Thoughts~
This is a positive upbeat story about a young girl and her dream to star on Broadway. I loved Kristen and how supportive her parents are of her. They packed up their family and moved closer to help her achieve her dream. What awesome parents! It was so beautiful how much they believed in her and how hard this young girl worked. She kept going on, audition after audition, losing various parts to her competition, yet never giving up. I rooted for her all the way. She's strong, hard-working, and inspiring no matter what your own goal may be. I really loved this story and the way it ended!

I received a copy of this story from the author in exchange for an honest review through the Making Connections group on Goodreads.
