Julia is short for her age and does not like to be reminded about it. She is irritated that her mother is making her try out for a summer play in the Wizard of Oz as a munchkin. Typecast much? But as the summer progresses she learns a lot about the theater, stereotypes, friendships, and herself. In the end she comes to terms with her height and ends up loving the theater.
I listened to this on audio. I loved Julia's voice although I must admit that by the end of the recording I was getting a bit "over it". Not sure if I would have had the same reaction to the physical book. I also felted it lagged a bit in the middle but that may also be because my listening was interrupted several times. Overall an enjoyable book.
