"Will hit all the high notes for theater and mystery fans alike." -- Kirkus Reviews

Better Nate than Ever meets Love Sugar Magic in this spooky middle grade novel from Hamilton and Broadway star Mandy Gonzalez about a group of young thespians who must face the ghost haunting their theater.

Twelve-year-old Monica Garcia has arrived in NYC with her grandmother and a few suitcases to live her dream on Broadway. She's been chosen as understudy to the star of Our Time , the famed Ethel Merman Theater's last chance to produce a hit before it shutters its doors for good. Along with her fellow castmates--a.k.a. "the squad"--Monica has a big and very personal reason to want this show to succeed.

But rumors of a long-running curse plague the theater. And when strange and terrible things start to threaten their hopes for a successful opening night, Monica and the rest of the squad must figure out how to reverse the curse before their big Broadway debuts.

With the help of her new friends, her family, and a little magic, can Monica help save the show--and save their dreams? From Broadway and television star Mandy Gonzalez comes a story about what it means to dream, be yourself, and be fearless.

Booklist Review: "Gonzalez, a Broadway star and creator of #FearlessSquad, a group fostering inclusivity, aspiration, and camaraderie, brings drama, mystery, and more in her thrilling love letter to Broadway theater. Pulling from her own experiences, she offers here an adventure in which Monica, a young Latinx kid with a passion for singing, gets a call to be the understudy for one of the leads in Our Time. When she arrives in New York City, she is dazzled, right up until she learns about the curse on the theater where she's working. After receiving an odd key and some cryptic messages, she embarks on a journey to break the curse on the theater forever. More than just a mystery, this is about all the magic of theater, written by someone with a deep appreciate for the art form. Readers will learn about different shows and people, all the while easily relating to the main characters, who are vividly fleshed out on the page. The kids, especially Monica, are easy to root for, and the author delivers a very satisfying ending."
