"Liza of Green Gables" by Renee Riva

About this book:

  “When Liza Braun tries out for the Rainier Theater Production of Anne of Green Gables, she has no idea that the assistant director is going to do everything she can to make sure her daughter, Charlotte, is the star of the show. But when Liza wins the lead role, the play is suddenly revised so the character of Diana Berry upstages Anne Shirley in every scene---until Dillon Derry gets the part of Gilbert Blithe and decides two people can play that game.
  Knowing the kind of pranks Dillon was capable of, Liza could only imagine what he had in store for OPENING NIGHT.
  Join the chaos as Liza and Dillon have the time of their life adding a little creative license to help spice things up.”

My personal Rating-
Starting soon after “Happy Camper” left off, “Liza of Green Gables” picks up in Liza’s point of view. Trying to audition for the part of Anne in a play, Liza also has to deal with her trouble-making next-door neighbor boy. Overall, it was a cute read!

See y’all on Monday with a new review!
