THE MAGNIFICENT ROLLING ROXIE

Roxie Parco has two hearing aids and a history of mishearing her cues. Classmate Carrie predicts Roxie will now mess up the fifth-grade play.

Roxie sets out to prove her classmate wrong with an amazing audition. It would’ve helped if she hadn’t been so distracted by Aidan’s new arm ink during her tryout! She misses directions and earns one of the smallest parts. Carrie’s negative focus on Roxie’s disability gathers steam.

A Magic 8-Ball doesn’t offer optimistic answers to Roxie’s problem, but Grandma has some solid advice. “Ya always gotta have a Plan B!”

Roxie’s lucky break materializes when rehearsals go haywire. She concocts a fractured version of the play in an attempt to save the production. Her goal is to skyrocket the class—and her own minor part—to glory. But Roxie had better watch out! If Miss French gets a whiff of the secret script and costume changes, she'll get thrown out of the production. Feeling empowered by her roller skates, she forges ahead.

Roxie soon discovers something her Magic 8-Ball didn't predict. Carrie has a secret of her own. And it's one that will force Roxie to make a life-changing decision.
