Purple Dragonfly
Award Winner!

"In addition to being a fun read, this story does what so much fine literature does--helps us to see that we are not alone"  
   Amazon reviewer 

What's a girl to do?

Beatrice thinks she has no talent, but that doesn't stop her from auditioning for the annual middle school play.  Easy! Except Michiko, a new girl from Japan, shows up and ruins everything.
So begins Beatrice's humorous and diabolical plan to scare away Michiko.  But Michiko has goals of her own with no plans to leave soon.  Then there's that "other" girl, Bumbling Bea, who is such a blabbermouth.
