Allen Zadoff‘s terrific new book is My Life, the Theater, and Other Tragedies, about a high school theater techie (he works lights in a production of “Midsummer Night’s Dream”) who likes to stay behind the scenes until he meets a pretty transfer student who is suddenly put into one of the starring roles. It is funny, smart, and filled with authentic details and a lot of heart. You can win prizes for your own school theater group by uploading a picture of the book in a theatrical setting to the contest page. You might find yourself in the paperback edition! Stay tuned for an interview with Zadoff coming soon.
