How to Stage a Catastrophe by Rebecca Donnelly

What a fun little book! The narration is witty and the staging dynamic in this adorable Middle Grade read that’s set up like a play. Perfect for budding theater-geeks who want to learn more about the innerworkings of theater while also enjoying a hilarious tale of friendship and ingenuity. The cast is witty (Folly was by far my favorite) and their plan to save their local theater is just so adorable.

I definitely loved being able to follow along with their antics and revel in their mission, and I think this is a great choice for younger readers. The story is a bit slow at times, but the charms are plentiful enough that I think it will easily keep young readers engaged.

Rating: 3.5/5 stars
