RUBY PARKER HITS THE SMALL TIME
This fun, delightful story set in the world of British soap operas will delight daytime TV fans. Many behind-the-scenes peeks enrich the story and there are plenty of boys to crush on!
The kids at Ruby's London school think she has it all with a role on a top-rated daytime soap she started when was 6. But as the 13-year-old grows into her looks, the show might be dumping her for someone prettier. Meanwhile, her parents might be splitting up and worse, the biggest scene of her career is coming up -- a first kissing scene.
