Carrie has made a demo tape and wants to sing in her brother's band at an outdoor festival. Ernie lets her sing one song.
Full of confidence from her first public performance, Carrie goes off to her first day of school. All her friends are in another class and the girls in her homeroom make fun of her. When it's her turn to stand up and introduce herself, she is tongue-tied. How can it be that she can sing but she can't talk in front of a crowd? Her confidence crumbles.
Carrie Loses Her Nerve is a lively story that shows how we can do more than we know--if we only try.
