Gabrielle thought about it before she had the talk with her mom and said to herself that she would pick her best friend shelly for the star of the show. But her mom said, “It wouldn’t be nice to do that because there are other girls that have hidden talents and would want to be the star of the play.” Gabrielle said, “Ok,” and went to school.

One of the shyest girls in the school became the most popular girl because Gabrielle picked her for the lead role.
