Wonder Blake is an unpopular teenager who's working at the Dairy Queen when she is "discovered" by the former music manager of her late sister. Suddenly, Wonder finds herself with a recording contract that rockets her to stardom with a hit single. What she learns is that being a pop princess is not all it's cracked up to be. Christy Carlson Romano gives Wonder's voice the exasperated tone often heard from teenagers. Her tone is clear and strong, and her reading picks up speed when Wonder encounters frustrating situations. The production, light, fun, and easy to listen to, is sure to entice fantasy- seeking teenagers who like to dream. J.F.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
