Too Hot! #3
Authors: Lerangis, Peter
Publisher: Penguin Young Readers Group
Synopsis: New York Times Bestselling author Peter Lerangis delivers a well-cast drama with his third installment in the Drama Club series.
For the Spring production, the Drama Club decides to do something different, something meatier. So they convince Mr. Levin to let them do an independent production of a serious play—a play with issues—and raw language—and some controversy. (Just the thing to impress those college admissions boards.) When opening night comes around, the show has a piddling turnout. The audience is nearly silent, and the cast thinks it’s a flop. But the next night the place is packed. The second performance is electric. Great, right? Not exactly. A parent lodges a complaint, saying the play is inappropriate for high school. Then someone publishes a piece in the school paper that makes the rehearsal process appear to be rife with all kinds of sordid behavior. There is a huge outcry from the parents and from the school administration, and Mr. Levin is in real trouble. Now the Drama Club members have to band together to help save their advisor from being fired!
"Overall, a solid and well-cast production."—School Library Journal on The Big Production
