Leo's papa stood in the doorway, gazing down at him. Leo, you make gold from pebbles, and the way he said it, Leo could tell that this was a good thing.

He may have been given a bit part in the school play, but Leo dreams he is the biggest star on Broadway.

Sure, his big, noisy family makes him feel like a sardine squashed in a tin, but in his fantasy he gets all the attention he wants.

Yes, his papa seems sad and distracted, but Leo imagines him as a boy, tap-dancing and singing with delight.

That's why they call Leo fog boy. He's always dreaming, always replaying things in his brain. He fantasizes about who he is in order to discover who he will become. As an actor in the school play, he is poised and ready for the curtain to open. But in the play that is his life, Leo is eager to discover what part will be his.

    " Replay, by Sharon Creech, is the story of Leonardo or Sardine, which is what everyone in his family calls him. This quiet, introspective twelve-year old often finds himself sardined in between his more boisterous and outgoing siblings. When Leo exploring the attic he finds an old diary entitled, Age of Thirteen written by his father when he was young. There is also a mysterious Rosaria who appears in pictures and in the diary that Leo has never even heard of. When Leo gets the part of the Old Crone in the school play, Rumpopo's Porch, he is disappointed at not getting the lead role, however in the end he embraces the part. Through the parallel dramas of the play and his chaotic home life, Leo begins to understand the importance of stories and our need to share them, whether they are treasured memories or future dreams. Read this book to find out how Leo deals with loss, truth, change, and forgiveness. "

    " I thought this was yet another charming book by Sharon Creech. She's become one of my favorite authors. Refreshing and tender. She makes me evaluate how I look at the tween generation and my own methods of parenting a bit. "
