Screen shot 2014-02-07 at 8.47.05 AMJust released — Bit Players, Bird Girls and Fake Break-Ups — the third novel in the Bit Players series. Seussical fans, take note!

Senior year is not going as planned. The drama club Sadie Perkins co-founded is being hijacked by the new director, college applications loom like a sinister unknown, and Sadie’s boyfriend Alex moves in with her family while his mother is in the hospital. That’s right, moves in. They eat every meal together, sleep across the hallway from each other, and share a bathroom. Can you say awkward?

Making it worse, they have to pretend to be broken up, or Sadie’s old-fashioned parents won’t let Alex stay. Acting and real life blur as Sadie and Alex struggle to maintain their roles. At least Sadie has theatre to keep her sane. She’s got a lead in Seussical, and satisfies her need to create with Whossical, a student-produced satire of the beloved Dr. Seuss-themed musical.

 If Sadie’s choosing and winning the roles she wants, why does she feel so out of control?

Bit Players, Bullies and Righteous Rebels is the second novel in the Bit Players series.

Sadie Perkins just wants the Crudup High drama club’s spring musical to go smoothly, but the original production of “Wuthering Heights: A Modern Tragedy” is threatened when an anonymous texter starts bullying Sadie’s gay friend Foster, the lead in the play. And Sadie’s boyfriend Alex is suddenly acting homophobic, making Sadie wonder if she really knows him at all. On top of that, she has to add a controversial, secret song-and-dance number to the show behind the director’s back, to impress the professor from the Yale School of Drama.

Find out what happens in this realistic, uplifting story in which teens battle the challenges of everyday life while putting on the show of a lifetime.

Bit Players, Has-Been Actors and Other Posers takes you deep into the heart of a high school drama program, with its creativity, camaraderie, politics and, well, drama.

If you love Glee and High School Musical, this is the book for you. Join Sadie Perkins in her quest for a lead role, as the Crudup High School drama club makes its own musical out of Twilight.

If you love Twilight, read Bit Players and watch Sadie Perkins and her friends bring Bella and Edward to life (pun intended) in a completely different way!

Intrigue abounds. Why does Sadie’s rival Lucey really get the role of Bella? What’s behind foreign exchange student Nigel’s interest in high school theatre? And where does the show’s director, Mr. Ellison, disappear to three days before opening night? With everything falling apart, can the cast even pull off the show?
