Synopsis

I am a Tree by Kaye Umansky

Tim is an ace actor and keen member of the school drama club. So of course he expects to be the star of the end of year school play. But to his horror he finds he's been cast as a tree. And not just that - his only lines are in verse. Is there anything he can do to save his reputation? A brilliantly funny, hugely readable story, about how to make the most of a supporting role.
