Fans of Canadian Idol, Camp Rock, and High School Musical will delight in reading this super funny story of eleven-year-old Libby Meek and her plans for superstardom!

The only thing standing in Libby's way is her school's low provincial test results. With all extra-curricular activities put on hold so the students can retake the test, Libby and her friends set out to prove the value of staging a concert by applying real-life situations to classroom learning.

"Light, easy to read, and filled with humour."

"Libby's Got the Beat is an impressive novel ... Rayner's characters are well described and are believable, typical middle grade students... The dialogue is also realistic." Highly Recommended.
