Ruby Parker Hits the Small Time by Rowan Coleman - OPTIONAL


Coleman, Rowan Ruby Parker Hits the Small Time, 223 p. Harper Tempest, 2005. Language- G; Sexual Content- G; Violence- G;

Ruby becomes a TV star when she is little. She becomes Angel on Kensing Heights. She gets nervous when she overhears her boss talking to other members of the cast about firing her because she is "off balance". Her best friend Nydia comes up with this crazy plan to stop her from getting fired. The next day at work, Ruby talks to her boss and her boss says that she will admit her love to her cousin who she absolutely adores! While all this is going on, Ruby's dad moved out of the house and she falls apart.

I think that Nydia was a cool character because she made parts of the story real.
