The Silver Secret

The Silver Secret

Series: Sassy
by Sharon M. Draper

Sassy's got a secret, and she's bursting to tell someone. But sometimes even the juiciest secrets must wait to be shared. The thing that is NOT secret at all is that Sassy can't sing, not even a little bit. She dreams of being in the school choir concert in which all the girls will wear awesome sparkly dresses.

Sassy is given the job of stage manager, but it's backstage, behind the scenes, and Sassy longs to be in the spotlight. To make matters worse, Sassy's sparkle sack goes missing! In her sack is her secret — a shiny silver piccolo.

Readers will cheer when the sack is found, and Sassy's talent on the piccolo comes out of hiding.
