When you have to sing your heart out, it's best to know how....

Maggie Tannery is a true theater girl and a total shoo-in for the lead in this year's school production of Romeo and Juliet. She's seriously psyched because it looks like her crush, Daniel, might be playing her Romeo both on- and offstage -- if all goes as planned.

But when her school decides to perform a m

This book is really tremendous. I really enjoyed it. This book is about how this girl Maggie who loved to act. She is typically a shy girl, but when acts, she lets out of her comfort zone and becomes a star. Maggie also has a huge crush on the most popular guy in the school. His name is Derick. When the theater teacher had a heart attack, it made him to retired. One day when Maggie and her friends got to the drama club meeting, they saw their new teacher. Instead of doing Romeo and Juliet, the t ...more

Another hilarious read from the Simon Pulse RoCom series!

Love on Cue is great for those who like light comedy and easy romance but personally, I don't think it's all that great. To me, Maggie seemed WAY too desperate to be Derek's girlfriend. And the way she gets all tongue-tied around Derek got old. It happens way to commonly in books. I mean seriously!? In Love on Cue, she can't even form a coherent sentence. In real life, I don't think that would happen or if it does, then it wouldn't be comm

Love on Cue by Catherine Hapka focuses around Maggie Tannery, a theater-obsessed girl whose acting prowess doesn’t extend to self-confidence in singing, or in relation to cute guys. When her drama teacher ends up retiring early, the high school drama production ends up changing from Romeo and Juliet to Cabaret. After looking forward to playing Juliet, Maggie’s stage fright when it comes to singing almost prevents her auditioning for Cabaret at all, but of course she couldn’t pass up the opportun ...more

Maggie had always been a shy girl until it comes to acting. She had signed up for the Romeo and Juliet play and was looking forward to it. Couple days later, she figured out that her teacher had a heart attack and they got a substitute teacher. Maggie and her classmates were depressed that their teacher was absent not only because he was a good teacher but because their new teacher had decided to do a musical instead of a play. Maggie has stage fright because she could not sing. When she figure ...more

My Thoughts: I had this one sitting here for a while. I bought it when it first came out at the beginning of summer but never got around to reading it yet. I read it in one sitting! I really enjoyed the concept of the play and how it got turned into a musical. We meet Maggie who gets to play opposite of her crush Derek. She wants to take this opportunity to get close to him, but when the heart is involved things don't always go as planned. Yes, it was predictable but its one you still want to re ...more

Maggie Tannery is very shy. However, when on stage and transformed into a character, Maggie easily finds her voice.

Now though, with a new drama teacher in the mix, Maggie has a bigger problem -- she has to find her singing voice! That can be difficult when Maggie has convinced herself she absolutely cannot sing. Thankfully, music genius and cutie Nico decides to help out. After all, his musical is on the line.

Then there's Derek, the most popular and cutest g

The only place Maggie Tannery isn’t shy is on the stage, and thanks to years to working her way up the theater system, she is the most likely candidate for the lead in Romeo and Juliet. She’s psyched for a little Shakespeare to let her shine, especially when she finds out that her crust Derek might also be auditioning for the school play. But a switch from performing a play to a musical catches Maggie off guard. How is she supposed to land the lead opposite Derek when she can’t sing? To remedy t ...more

Normally Maggie Tannery is a shy and self-conscious high school girl, but she completely transforms when she is put on stage. When it’s time for auditions for the school’s annual production Maggie is sure to be a shoe in. Better yet, her long time crush Daniel might just be playing the lead along side her, and hopefully not just in the play if Maggie has things her way!

Then the unthinkable happens. A new drama teacher comes into the picture and instead of performing Romeo and Juliet, she’s think

Finished this book today. It was REALLY cute. 3.5 stars, I'd say. Quite cheesy, but really cute nonetheless. The first 50 pages or so really reminded me of How to Kiss a Guy... (WOW, don't even ask why I KNOW that... Let's just call it a phase and move on, okay?) but after the beginning it was different. :) I'm glad Maggie came to her freaking senses and decided to date a guy she could have an intelligent conversation with... *snorts* She was a bit of a Bella (except WAAAAY worse) around the oth ...more

Really cute! But in real life, that would never happen

SO cute and completely hilarious.

A really cute read. I could identify with Maggie's shyness, and I liked how despite the fact Derek wasn't the one for Maggie he was still a good guy. It wasn't the typical "the guy you like is a jerk, why don't you see the guy right in front of you?!" scenario. Both Derek and Nico were good guys, and it was just a matter of who really fit with Maggie. I would say this is definitely one of the better rom-com titles I've read.

I started out reading this booking thoroughly enjoying it and soon it just sort of sizzled out for me. It could have been more. It was missing a few details that shouldn't have been missed. Like exactly what did he say in the song? Why didn't Calla talk to her about what he said in the song? There were other things I think that would have added to the story to make it more adorable.

Loved the ending!!!!
Chloe
This book was pretty good. I didn't know if i was going to like it because she is so shy(not like me) but i ended up liking her because of her little mini plays. I thought that was cool. It was very good overall.
Adriana
loved it.....nice and romantic and it goes to prove the guy that you want is not always the guy that is right for you and the one that is right in front of you the whole time is...
Hillary Hernandez
LOVED IT!!!! I could totally relate. And I actually finished reading during opening night of a musical I was in. It was really great and I loved reading it. Love is blind and tone deaf. ;P
Mirela
Completely cute. The romantic interest in Derek has blinded her of possible chance with Nico. He is more then just the wierd quiet music manager of the school plays.
Emily
This book is more of a 4.5 but it's still darn good. It had some great moments and other times it's kinda boring but most of the book is really good!
Dennis
This was a cute book, funny in how the characters think, realizing who likes them and is willing to put the extra effort to help.
T.M. Carper
Cute teen romance set behind the scenes of a musical. Very great details about acting and performing on stage.
Spring Clark
Another fun teeny bopper romance. This one had some edge to it, but still not bad. A nice, easy read.
