The unexpected divorce of Madison’s parents relocated her to New York City—a place that she has vowed to loathe. Through incredible coincidence, Madison finds a shoebox full of letters belonging to a young woman named Jessica. A connection is formed that will forever change the course of Madison’s life. Narrated by Madison’s older self, Back Cover is a story of loss, courage, humanity, and the painful—but wonderful—experience of growing up.

If I wanted to do this for UIL One Act Play Competition, is it possible to do scenes from it in 40minutes? Also if it is possible to do for competition, how can I order a hard copy to send to state for approval?
