This book made me feel happy. I could relate to the story because it felt like something that could really happen in my life. Penny is my favorite character because she pushes through tough times. I think other kids should read this book to see that it is okay to be nervous. I think people that love adventure would love this book.

I liked Penny the best in this story because I can relate to her. This book made me feel anxious and excited at the same time because there was a play coming up so I was anxious that it wouldn’t go right. I was also excited for Penny to go on stage. This was a very good book and it was a book of fun and you can relate to it because it’s about a normal family and their daughter.

Penny, a fifth grade girl, doesn’t want to be an actress, or move to a new house. When she did move, nothing really changed at the new house but when her friend Petra wrote a school play everything changed A LOT. She was going to be a fluttering bat, but now she’s the narrator! I recommend this book to anyone who loves a funny book!
