Description

It’s the start of a new season for Harrington High’s improv team—and Chloe is determined that this will be the year they make it all the way to the top. Her teammates (who also happen to be her closest friends) are a talented bunch, and she knows they can do it. They have to. Because getting to nationals is Chloe’s best chance to prove—to her parents, to the improv scouts and, most of all, to herself—that she has what it takes to succeed. Chloe is doing everything she can to help her teammates perform better. So why are they all mad at her?

Editorial Reviews

"Trudee Romanek sweetly illustrates the duality of competition and collaboration that exists in so many students of improv across the country. She offers a unique glimpse into the world of a high school improv team - a world inhabited by thousands of young Canadians year after year."

— AL Connors, National Director, Canadian Improv Games

"This novel deals very specifically with the skills of improvisation...Chloe learns that friendships and learning experiences can take you further than trophies."

— Resource Links

"The flow of this book is very smooth and transitions well between the various characters. Romanek provides great information through the characters on the subject of improv. While the reluctant reader will enjoy this book, it may attract other readers who are interested in this topic and may go the extra step in researching it."

— VOYA

"The author does a great job of describing the improv scenes and warm-up activities. This gives the reader a good understanding of how improv works and makes the story believable...If the reader is interested in performing arts, and in improv in particular, Raising the Stakes would be a good book to build background knowledge and introduce the world of improv."

— CM Magazine
