Frenchy plans on spending senior year hanging out at the Smoking Rock with his best friend, Stewart. What he did not plan was Stewart landing the lead role in the school play, Man of La Manche. And it is not for a prank; Stewart is very serious about getting the role and becoming the role. As always, Frenchy is Stewart’s loyal “Sancho” (literally, he is cast as Quixote’s faithful sidekick) and is right beside him. However, when Stewart seems to be unable to distinguish reality from the character of Don Quixote, it brings memories flooding back of Frenchy’s father. Memories he rather not face. It is up to Frenchy to decide, does he try and help Stewart fight his windmills or should he let him face them alone? Teens (13 up) and adults will cheer, laugh and cry right along with these amazing people ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
