Excerpt

1. Friday, August 1 FRIDAY, AUGUST 1
Well, it looks like my FIFTEEN MINUTES OF FAME are finally over !

YES! It was a MIND-BLOWING experience to be the opening act for the BAD BOYZ, a world-famous BOY BAND! I was heartbroken (along with millions of their fans) when they ended their tour early to take a break.

Now I’m STUCK at home for the rest of the summer, and my life is pretty much back to normal. “Normal” meaning EXCRUCIATINGLY BORING! So, for a little excitement, my bandmates and I agreed to do a FREE concert tonight for our local Summer Fun Fest. Hey, the $100 gift cards they offered us from the CupCakery made it impossible to refuse !

We were performing after Pickles the Juggling Clown and before my neighbor Mrs. Wallabanger and her FIERCE squad of elderly belly dancers. We’re pros! Like, how hard could this GIG be?!…













OMG!

I COULD NOT BELIEVE THIS WAS HAPPENING TO ME !!

Unfortunately, my FRENEMY, MacKenzie Hollister, has a really bad habit of popping up at the WORST POSSIBLE TIME! Like a huge, pus-filled ZIT that magically appears on the end of your NOSE.

On your way to SCHOOL!

On PICTURE DAY!!

I quickly pulled the curtain back over my head.

All I wanted to do right then was dig a really deep hole, crawl into it, and…

DIE!!

I HAD A COMPLETE MELTDOWN!

My WORST NIGHTMARE had come true!

Or… HAD IT?!!

Whenever I get SUPERstressed out about something, I ALWAYS have a bad dream about it.

Like the time I had a HORRIBLE nightmare about my BIRTHDAY PARTY!…


I DREAMED THAT MACKENZIE “ACCIDENTALLY” PUSHED ME HEADFIRST INTO MY BIRTHDAY CAKE!!

So it was VERY possible that my CHAOTIC CONCERT CATASTROPHE was ONLY a NIGHTMARE!

And any second now I was going to WAKE UP in my bedroom, drenched in a cold sweat, totally RELIEVED that it was ALL just a figment of my imagination.

PLEASE! PLEEASE!!

PLEEEEASE!!!

LET ALL OF THIS BE A REALLY. BAD. DREAM!!

!
