In her seventh drama book for teens, Rebecca Young demonstrates her wonderful ability to write in the voice of teenage characters and emphasize believable experiences that appeal to young actors. Boyfriend issues, girlfriend issues. Teacher issues, parent issues. Sports issues, band issues. Love, hate, jealousy, betrayal, and so much more. Middle school years are some of the best and hardest times a student can go through, and Young captures both the drama and especially the humor of this unique age. The book is fairly even divided between monologues for girls, for guys, or for either, and the wide variety of topics ensures a good fit with any student's personality. All monologues are between one and two minutes and are suitable for auditions, classroom performance, speech competitions, or acting practice.
