After saving the show in DUSTIN GRUBBS: ONE-MAN SHOW, Dustin is back in DUSTIN GRUBBS: TAKE TWO! In this lively sequel he's trying out for the lead in Oliver. But this time, it won't be so easy. This time he has to sing. And dance. The only place he ever sings is in the shower. But he counts on his sense of humor to get him the part. And the fact that he's the only boy trying out.

What he doesn't expect is an all-out war between the arts committee and the athletic department. He doesn't expect his best friend to find a new best friend. He doesn't expect plain girls to blossom over the summer, beautiful frogs that can be poisonous. And he never expects to attend a casting call for a national commercial with his dad on his first trip to see him in three years.

Plus, his brother is keeping secrets behind his back. And his aunt springs a huge announcement that results in an enormous dilemma for Dustin. Dustin handles disappointments with humor and style. And, once again, without meaning to, he ends up being the hero.

John J. Bonk has another winner on his hands. The bad puns, Dustin's hilarious sarcastic voice, and the author's incredible imagination are irresistible. I guarantee that once you pick this book up, you won't be able to put it down until you have finished it.
