About The Book

A brilliantly empowering gender-busting book about doing exactly what you love and being exactly who you are!

Sam and Olivia are VERY excited about the school play. They love singing, they love dancing, they love doing their own thing! But when the roles PERFECT for them go to someone else - they know they have to hatch a plan, while always remembering the most important thing: No matter what we look like: WE'VE GOT TALENT!
