Dara Palmer's Major Drama
Dara was adopted as a baby from Cambodia. She looks nothing like her adopted family or even her adopted sister, Georgia who is from Russia. She is also a future star and a drama queen. When she tries out for the lead in The Sound of Music she is devastated when she doesn't even get a part. Why? She made all the right faces, sang loudly - what's up?
In this coming of age book Dara learns more about herself by learning to step into another person's shoes. She finds out that she is actually overdramatic and selfish. Soon she embarks on a mission to learn more about herself - her Cambodian roots and where she fits in now.
A fun book. Dara is quite the character.
