Fans of Canadian Idol, Camp Rock, and High School Musical will delight in reading this super funny story of eleven-year-old Libby Meek and her plans for superstardom!

The only thing standing in Libby's way is her school's low provincial test results. With all extra-curricular activities put on hold so the students can retake the test, Libby and her friends set out to prove the value of staging a concert by applying real-life situations to classroom learning.
