She did make a promise last year that she would try to break out of her shell, just a little. And she prayed that shed get the courage to do it. As her eleventh birthday draws near, she realizes time is running out. And when a secret recording of her singing leaks and catches the attention of her whole church, she needs to decide whats better: deceiving everyone by pretending it belongs to someone else, or finally stepping into the spotlight.
