Today, I'm happy to announce that Wrenn Scott, the star of Leigh Brescia's's One Wish. Ok, let's start with how much I judge this book by its cover. And I judge it as AWESOME. But then I met Wrenn (and Leigh) and I judge it also by its author and main character. That's acceptable, right?
Overweight Wrenn Scott desperately wants to be popular and snag a hot boyfriend. Her amazing voice (for once) overshadows her weight when she lands a lead role in the high school musical. Pushing to get thinner by opening night, Wrenn's waistline shrinks as she learns all the wrong ways to lose weight from a new "it-girl" friend in the show. By opening night, the old Wrenn has almost disappeared. After a crisis reveals her weight-loss tricks, Wrenn realizes there are much more important things than being thin, popular, or even dating a hunk.

Popularity (and everything that comes with it)
What is your least favorite word?
Terrific! Ugh! It’s so overused. I hate it!

What turns you off?
Phil in his boxers. I’m serious. I’m actually throwing up a little bit in my mouth like, right this moment.
What is your favorite curse word?
I don’t really curse. My mom used to (enough for all of us), but ever since Phil came along she’s choosing her words more wisely. It’s annoying, actually.

The click of the “on” button of my electric piano
What sound or noise do you hate?
Mr. Pike when he yells: “No! No! No! Cut!”
What profession would you like to attempt?
I might like to be a Broadway singer, but I have to get over the stage fright first.
What profession would you not like to do?
Work for Mitzi Monroe at Channel 8. She’s wicked.
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the Pearly Gates?
We’re needing a lead soprano for the angelic choir. You interested?
