Editors Note Jacob Freistens goal in life is to go about unnoticed. Hes perfect at gliding past the jocks lockers and sneaking into his English class. That was, until now. If Jacob wants to pass English, he must work for extra credit on the stage crew of the school production of The Wizard of Oz.Jacob, who is usually in a fog anyway, has the the job of running the fog machine. The problem is that Maria Tresser, the girl of his dreams, is cast as the Wicked Witch. Jacob's already made a fool of himself in front of Maria. How can he face her again?
Editors Note 1 Three-time Newbery Honor-winner Gary Paulsen delivers a fast-paced and hilarious story of a boy's awarkward adventures behind the scenes of the school play. "A comic, accessible novel".--Kirkus Reviews, pointered review.
