Molly’s Cue is a story of growing up only to discover that things aren’t the way you always thought they were, but that, with persistence, there’s more than one way to reach for the stars.

For always and EVER, Molly Gumley has wanted to be on stage, has imagined and dreamed of life as an actor. That’s because Grand, her grandmother, filled Molly with colourful stories of theatre life, and with her faith in what she saw as Molly’s destiny. But as Molly enters high school, Grand is no longer in her life. She’s left to pursue the dream on her own.

High school, with a real stage and a real drama teacher, is the next step to Molly and Grand’s shared dream -- life is finally going to begin. Molly auditions for a school play, certain of the lead role. She is going to shine! But then she runs into a roadblock that threatens everything, making her question her lifelong dream.

With a cast of interesting and unforgettable supporting characters, Molly’s Cue will appeal to all young adults trying to find their place in life’s stage. Humourous and poignant, Alison has created a compelling novel that will appeal to many.
