244 pgs., Paperback
Tour Copy from author and Teen {Book} Scene
First in the Dancing Dream Series
Young Adult Fiction

From Goodreads:

When fifteen-year-old Sonya Garrison is accepted into the prestigious Bridgeton Academy, she soon discovers that rich girls are just as dangerous as the thugs in her home of Venton Heights. Maybe more so. After catching the eye of the star, white basketball player and unwittingly becoming the most popular girl in school, she earns the hatred of the three most ruthless and vindictive girls at Bridgeton. Can she defeat the reigning high school royalty? Or will they succeed in ruining her lifelong dream of becoming a world class dancer?

Opinion:

This is so far from my usual genre I wasn’t sure I would enjoy it. What I found was a book, that I not only enjoyed, but truly loved..

Sonya is such a sweet girl with her eyes set on one goal. To be a dancer, not for the money that would help get her out of the horrible surroundings, but because of the love of dance.
She is loyal to a fault and is truly courageous, which not only makes her likable but relatable when she takes revenge on those who have damaged her reputation.

Will is an amazing partner to her internal gracefulness. He is consistently kind and doesn’t care about the poverty she was raised in. The most telling scene of his goodness involves a cow roaming the halls of the school.

I can’t wait to read the next in the series.

Rating: 4.5/5
