Stella the Unstoppable and the Talent Show Fiasco

by Richard Newsome

Hi! I’m Stella and yes, I’ll admit it. I sprayed the class guinea pig with fire extinguisher foam (who knew those things actually worked?). Now I’ve been forced to enter the school talent show as punishment. You know who usually wins? My arch rival, Ricky-Lee Ventura, who has the voice of an angel. But wait! If I can get help from my (sort-of crazy) dog and my (kind-of odd) friends, I have a brilliant idea…

P.S. Warning: this book is probably going to make you laugh till you cry. Yes. No. Really.
