The fourth grade puts on a play written by Mrs. Hunter! Allie is sure she will walk away with the most coveted role — that of the princess, naturally — but one of her friends gets the part! What Allie doesn't realize is that the part she does get — that of the evil queen — is actually the starring role.
But Allie isn't content with just starring in the play. She goes full-on method and borrows some false eyelashes to wear for the play, which (what else is new?) causes a great deal of excited controversy. Allie learns it's not the size of the part, it's the size of the heart that matters.
