Charlie Peterson feels like a nobody. Tyler, Charlie's younger brother, and his new baby sister get all the attention. Even at Charlie's twelfth birthday party. Worst of all, Charlie's parents are forcing him to join an after school activity and he's plumb out of ideas. Luckily, Charlie's grandfather (a local actor known as Freedom Man) and his inspirational language arts teacher point him in the right direction. Charlie finds himself cast as Goose Boy in the community production of Scrooge, despite a bad case of stage fright. He must now sing, dance and act in front of hundreds of people-all while trying not to make a fool of himself. If all goes well, he may earn the admiration of the girl of his dreams and finally start to feel like a somebody. STAGE SHY captures the humor, stress and excitement of performing live in this heartwarming story.
"Stage Shy" Reviews
For the past month I have picked the book "Stage Shy" by Michael Foy. This book took me through the twists and turns of Charlie's life.
I love the foreshadowing in this book especially in the beginning where he does not take part in any activities that involve him with the center of attention but at the end of the book he takes part in all the embarrassing fun activities.
I also loved reading about the friendship/love interest Sandy and Charlie have with each other. The dancing scene at the end of the book gave me the chills for some reason I really don’t know why but you really felt like you were feeling the emotions that Charlie was feeling.
I overall love this book.
I read a book called Stage Shy which as the description says is about a boy named Charlie Peterson who ends up joining a play in which the story then talks about how he didn't want to go and how he ends up going and doing it anyway and he ends up enjoying it. I really didn't think was all that good in fact it was quite 2/5 there are many factors in which I don't like the book. I have read books like Flowers For Algernon which I personally thought was 5/5 and this was a poor compition. All in all a few good things and a few bad things 2/5.
Never actually read this book, just heard it's really good. (And it probably is)
