Description
Bestselling award-winning author Walter Dean Myers is back with his acclaimed Cruisers series.

The Cruiser, an alternative newspaper published by Zander and his crew of middle school misfits, is alive and well. And now there's plenty to report on when LaShonda, one of the Cruisers, steps into the spotlight with her costume designs for an upcoming play.

LaShonda's designs get rave reviews, but she soon learns that show business is filled with challenges and choices. LaShonda is forced to consider what's more important-fame or loyalty to her autistic brother. Whether she gets a standing ovation or the curtain pulled down on her is up to LaShonda. And she can't help but wonder if the Cruisers have her back and will be there for her whether she's center stage or waiting in the wings.

With signature humor and thought-provoking questions, Walter Dean Myers once again delivers a Cruisers novel that will keep readers in their seats and have them applauding after the drama ends on the book's last page.
