Ruetz blends history and legend with art and the natural world to give us a coming-of-age tale that will engage the youngest of audiences. It's unique, filled with surprise, and crafted with care. The design elements are rich with possibilities. It's a lovely addition to the TYA canon.

There's never been a ZOOM DUMP quite like this comedy from Karen Ruetz. And just when you think you know where it's going, it takes an even bigger turn! The writing here is both sensitive and funny, giving depth to a situation that feels both heightened and real. And the characters are explored with such compelling detail that you'll be thinking about them and what comes next long after the curtain closes.
Ms. Ruetz has masterfully used dramatic irony to great effect. The fun in this piece- and it is great fun- is watching the realization unfold for both women and seeing where they take it from there. A tale of inter generational female bonding. Read it, produce it!
