AN AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION POPULAR PAPERBACK FOR YOUNG ADULTS! Now a major motion picture! Melodramatic, yet lovable Lola vies with her archrival for the chance to stand center stage at Dellwood High (ages 12 and up).
Mary Elizabeth Cep (or Lola, as she prefers to be called) longs to be in the spotlight. But when she moves to New Jersey with her family and becomes a student at Dellwood "Deadwood" High, Lola finds the role of resident drama queen already filled, by the Born-to-Win, Born-to-Run-Everything Carla Santini. Carla has always gotten everything she wants -- until Lola comes along and snags the lead in the school play. Can Lola survive Carla's attempts at retaliation? Once the curtain goes up on the school play, which drama queen will take center stage?
