Mixed emotions greet Miss Angel when she announces that the school will have its own newspaper. When Stacey Stone inadvertently volunteers to be a writer, she must think fast to come up with a hook--she declares herself the school's Agony Aunt (advice columnist). When she misunderstands one of her letters, the UN and police show up in force. Kate Sachs perfectly portrays students, faculty, and parents, including a dad who sports a tattoo that reads "hat"; the "e" is missing. Her joyous delivery takes listeners on an eventful journey that closes with a moving message. Rich entertainment for impressionable listeners. S.G.B.
