"Despite weeks of practicing diligently for her recital (and the fact that she's wearing her lucky underwear), the earnest young pianist who narrates this story finds herself struck with stage fright: she draws a complete blank when it's time to play the piece she'd memorised for the performance. But, having taken her teacher's lessons to heart, she musters the skill she's developed in "musical interpretation" to make the most out of the one note she can manage to play: middle C. Funny yet wholly sympathetic, this simply illustrated tale will ring true with any kid (or adult!) who's ever frozen during a performance... or is scared that they might."
