Her mother is constantly pushing her to leave the safety of her room and be more social, but for Sara, being in public is a punishment worse than death.When Sara's teacher insists that everyone this year—shy or not—participate in the school play, Sara is filled with terror. To top it off, she finds out her best friend, the one person who understands her, might be moving away. More than ever, Sara wants to climb into her shell, but the play is looming and there's no place to hide.This ebook features an illustrated personal history of Ann M.
