A Part To Play

By Jennifer L. Fry


When fifteen-year-old actress Lucy Carter loses her older sister in a car accident, her mother shuts down and her father can’t hold the family together. Their only choice is to ship Lucy off to the Edmond School for Performing Arts. But boarding school is no cure for Lucy’s grief. With failing grades, wooden stage performances, and curfew violations, Lucy is threatened with expulsion. For the once talented Lucy, it feels as though she has nowhere to turn. One night, Lucy hears mysterious music drifting through the school’s old heating system. The music leads her to a troubled but passionate songwriter whose brilliance gives her the strength to perform like never before. Yet their intense relationship puts Lucy in a precarious position: if she follows her muse, will she lose herself? And if she breaks it off, can she stand on her own again?

  1. Avatar Lyn Fairchild Hawks says:

    Great voice over on this trailer–well spoken, and powerful emotion and tone. It’s also a very well-written script, which makes you want to try the book. The character voice is strong and her problems and burden, big, which draws us in.
    The main issue is the images; there aren’t enough variety to match a strong script and strong soundtrack (sirens, sounds of the accident, sounds of the new school).
