Gwendolyn Claire and the Foxfield School Play, the second in the Gwendolyn Claire Series of middle grade chapter books, continues to follow Gwen through her school year. She no longer faces bullying by The Foxfield Four (Gwendolyn Claire vs. The Foxfield Four) after receiving the support of her peers and help from skillful, adult friends. It’s already late October and Foxfield is proving to be a very exciting town with not only the school’s Halloween party and parade at the end of the month, but also the possibility of a library ghost at the local Barnard Public Library. To add to the exciting mix, Gwen (and the rest of her class for that matter) is thrilled to learn that play tryouts are coming up at the beginning of November! Gwen loved acting at her “old school” and was very successful at it, but now she comes face-to-face with the green-eyed monster of jealousy and the very real “drama” that comes along with tryouts for a popular school activity.
