I loved this book and I ordered it as a perfect Christmas gift for my nieces (ages 10, 11, 12 and 14). Not only is the cover beautiful, but the inside showcases an entertaining dance competition involving love, family, friends and the angst of growing up. I look forward to a sequel!  see moreof Nicole's review
