“Third-grader Marty McGuire prefers fishing in the creek to putting on pink frilly dresses and acting ladylike. When she is chosen for the lead in her class play and must wear a tiara, Marty determines to put her own twist on the production, with hilarious results. Messner has introduced a spunky new character that young readers will take to their hearts and eagerly await her next adventure.”
