Shira Gordon doesn’t think she has the courage to be in her school musical, especially when she’s cast as Mr. Jacey Squires, first tenor in the barbershop quartet. But singing arm in arm with three sweaty boys turns out to be the easy part, after she agrees to be the understudy for the show’s leading lady, school diva, Monica Manley.


Joseph Friedman is no good at sports. His ADD makes school a struggle and his fears range from gargoyles to stewed prunes. And add worms and the starting gun, when he joins the cross country team. But with help of a new team and a new friend, he finds out that coming in first isn’t the only way to win.
