Mia the Melodramatic
Summer has finally arrived, but Mia Fullerton doesn't have much to celebrate. Her best friend, Lisa, is spending the summer at a MENSA camp, and her boyfriend, Tim, will be at his grandparents' house in Maine. Stuck with a choice of spending the next two months hanging out with her annoying brother or taking a job at a local children's theatre group, Mia chooses the lesser of two evils and begins working at Little Tyke's Theatre.
During the summer, Mia is forced to perform kids' songs while dressed as a clown, sing in a punk rock band, and work with Zoë—a girl with fifteen piercings in her face. As the summer progresses, Mia discovers she enjoys being on stage. When the summer ends, Mia has an important decision to make. Should she return to her old friends and shy ways or let the new Mia grab some limelight of her own?
