Zoe is seventeen years old. She works in a bookstore, in the little town of Newport. Zoe likes books and she likes her work. But after work she likes to act in plays with the Newport Players.
The Newport Players do six plays every year, and Zoe is in most of them. Some plays are exciting, and some plays are famous. This week, the play is Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare.
'A lot of people are coming to see it,' Zoe thinks. 'I must act well.'
Mike is eighteen years old. He is a student at Newport College and he likes writing. One day he wants to write plays for the theatre and for television.
'One day I want to be famous,' he thinks.
Newport has a newspaper. The Newport Weekly News is its name, and Mike's Aunt Peggy is the editor. One morning, she phones Mike.
'Do you want to write a review of Romeo and Juliet for the newspaper, Mike?' she asks him. 'The Newport Players are doing the play tonight at the Little Theatre.'
'Yes, please, Aunt Peggy!' Mike says. 'Thanks for asking me.'
That evening, he goes to Newport's Little Theatre to see the play.
Mike goes into the theatre and sits at the front. He gets out his notebook and pen, ready to write notes for his review. There are a lot of people in the audience.
Five minutes later, the play begins.
Zoe acts the part of Juliet's mother. She knows all her words and speaks them well.
Mike is watching her.
'She's very pretty and she's doing her best,' he thinks. 'But it's not easy to act the part of an older woman. She's only sixteen or seventeen years old, and we all know it.'
He begins to write in his notebook.
Two hours later, the play ends and the audience leaves the theatre. Mike goes home and writes his review for the newspaper. He doesn't feel very happy.
'It was a good play, but what can I say about the girl acting the part of Juliet's mother?' he thinks. 'I want to be kind but I must be honest, too.'
At the bookstore on Friday, Zoe reads Mike's review of the play in the Newport Weekly News.and Zoe Baker acts the part of Juliet's mother. She has a pretty face and she speaks her words well. But she is a young girl in an older woman's costume, and we all know it. She can never make me believe differently.
Zoe is angry. She looks at the name under the review: Mike Morrison.
'Who is this Mike Morrison?' she thinks. 'What does he know about acting?'

On Tuesday evening the next week, Zoe and her friend Annie are drinking coffee in the Newport Café. Annie is a student at Newport College and sometimes in the evenings she and Zoe meet at the café.
Suddenly, Zoe sees a boy sitting at a table across the room. 'Who's that boy?' she asks Annie.
Annie laughs. 'Do you like him? He has a nice face,' she says. 'His name's Mike. I often see him at the college.'
'Mike?' Zoe says. 'Mike who?'
'Mike Morrison,' Annie says.
'That's Mike Morrison?' Zoe says. She is furious.
'Yes, why?' Annie asks.
'He writes reviews for the Newport Weekly News,' Zoe says.
'That's right,' Annie says. 'His aunt is the editor. He... oh!' She stops suddenly and looks at Zoe. 'The review of Romeo and Juliet—'
'Right!' Zoe says.' Do you remember it? "Zoe Baker acts the part of Juliet's mother. She has a pretty face and she speaks her words well. But she is a young girl in an older woman's costume, and we all know it." Nice face or no nice face, I hate him!'
Annie laughs. 'OK, go and tell him,' she says. 'Go and say, "I hate you, Mike Morrison. You write stupid reviews for the newspaper." Go on.'
But Zoe isn't laughing. 'Yes, all right!' she says furiously, and she begins to get up from her chair. Then she stops, suddenly.
'What's wrong?' Annie asks. 'Are you afraid?'
'No,' Zoe says. 'I have a better idea. Does he come into this café often?'
'Every Tuesday and Thursday evening, I think,' Annie says. 'He has a writing class at the college, and he comes here after it finishes.'
Zoe thinks for a minute or two. 'That's very interesting,' she says at last.
'Is it?' Annie says. She looks across at Mike Morrison, then at Zoe. 'Why is it interesting? What are you thinking of doing?'
'Tell me, am I a good actress?' Zoe asks.
'Yes, you are,' Annie says. 'But—'
'OK,' Zoe says. 'I'm a good actress and I want to prove it to Mr Mike-Nice-Face-Morrison.'
'How do you want to do that?' Annie asks.
Zoe smiles and begins to tell Annie about her idea...
