  • Lauren Duncan

    This is just a book I read when I was a child, which fueled many romantic notions of fame and foreign romance. It's fun to revisit once in a while. :)

    Stage-struck but awkward Maggie has to grow up before she can take what she hopes is her rightful place in her father's TV worldFinally found the cover that was on the copy I read from the John Ward School Library, she noted with satisfaction.

    This book is about a young woman who has dreams and strives to make them come true. Nice story.
