Nat Beacon has been in a wheelchair since a car accident when she was two, and now her parents are moving her across the country, from California (and her best friend since preschool, Chloe) to New Jersey. Nat misses California and Chloe, but when she sees a flyer for a youth production of Wicked - her favorite-ever musical - she auditions and gets a part. (Then, she has to tell her parents she skipped racing practice to get into a play instead.)

Nat finds an instant group of friends with the tween theater kids, but she faces her parents' overprotectiveness, accessibility obstacles, and the loss of their venue. Nat inspires the other kids to go on with the show anyway.

Quotes

"I don't want to be the next anyone," she explained. "I want people to want to be the next me." (4)

Of course the only disabled character I know of in a musical gets magically abled. In theater, anything is possible unless, of course, you're me. (42)

Her parents were smothering her so hard they'd basically forced her to lie. (62)

"I just feel like theater is the one place where we can try on different roles and show the world that there's more to us than what people might see." (108)

Confirming once meant nothing. Confirming twice meant something. Confirming three times was the only way to get what you wanted when it came to accessibility. (112)

"It's not just a hiccup! This is my life!" (Nat to her dad when the bus to the retreat doesn't have a lift, 115)

"Adults are in charge of our lives, but that doesn't mean they're always right." (171)

The fairy tales, the romantic comedies, the books, the TV episodes about love - nobody looked like her. No love interest was in a chair. She didn't exist. (196)

"I depend on you both for a lot of stuff. And I get that I'll need help forever. But that means you need to let me try out independence whenever I can. I need to test the limits, and I want your support." (234) ( )
