Read full description of the books:
Beth Sondquist, age twelve and a half, dreams of playing the part of Juliet. For now she’s just the cat in Cinderella, but one day, she’s determined to become a real actress. But all her hopes for an acting career come crashing down when the Oakfield Children’s Theater is slated to be closed. Its new owner has decided to make it into an adult theater, a real theater. Beth and her best friend, Zandy, are willing to do whatever it takes to save the theater, but their plans quickly go awry. When Beth’s father catches her sneaking back into her bedroom window well past bedtime, Beth is in big, big trouble.
With eviction looming, the children’s theater director decides to close the theater with the same play the theater opened with fifty years ago—Romeo and Juliet. But Beth’s grounded for the next two weeks, and she won’t be able to try out. How will Beth pull off playing Juliet if she can’t even make tryouts?
Playing Juliet is funny and honest and celebrates bravery and doing the right thing even when it gets you into trouble. It’s about having the courage to go after what you want and making your dreams come true. It’s also about friendship and family. As an almost-thirteen-year-old, Beth has a unique bond with thirteen-year-old Juliet, and she eventually recognizes just how silly and immature Juliet’s decisions are. Only Beth can play Juliet as the kid that she is. With a little bit of luck, maybe she’ll get her chance.

Read information about the authorI grew up as an Air Force brat. I’ve lived in 11 states NY, SC, PA, AZ, WA, VA, NJ, AK, DE, CT, CA and on the Greek island of Crete. Wherever we moved, my parents looked for a house near the library and I soon found all my old friends on its shelves.
I still love to read and to travel. And I love stories: reading them, writing them, telling them, seeing them on stage.
My wonderful aunts, Dorothy and Eileen, took me to Broadway to see my first play, Peter Pan. There were pirates and Indians and a fairy but best of all, the children could fly. Ever since I was 7 years old, I’ve known something magical might happen at any moment in a theater.
Years later, I saw another magical production, Shakespeare’s play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. There was an actor with a donkey’s head stuck on his shoulders, feuding lovers, and fairies who battled with flowers that flew into my lap. That night I counted the plays in The Complete Works of Shakespeare, my college text, and vowed to see a production of every single one of the 37 plays it listed. In 2014, I flew to Hawaii to see my 39th Shakespearian play, Edward III.
Many of the jobs I’ve held have involved writing. I’ve worked in public relations, as a marketing writer for a student travel organization, and as a columnist for Gentry magazine. I’ve also taught on the elementary, high school and college level.
One of my favorite jobs was as a children’s librarian at the Redwood City Public Library. That’s where I began The Traveling Storytime, which sends volunteers to read to preschool children in day care facilities. So far the volunteers have made over 250,000 child visits.
One of my favorite volunteer positions was serving as the Regional Advisor for the San Francisco and South area of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI).
One of my favorite hobbies is finding castles and palaces to sleep in when I’m traveling. My next book is set in the most ancient European palace of all. A hint, it's somewhere I lived as a child.
