Description

How much things have changed in one short year for 11-year-old Callie Kent, her mom, Audra, and her twin brothers, Graham and Garrett. Her mom always liked to say that military families understand the risks, but understanding gives way to harsh reality when Callie's dad, Captain Daniel Kent, is killed in a helicopter accident. Leaving the familiarity of their home in the Florida Panhandle, the Kent family relocates to south Florida and the home of maternal grandparents, Mem Mem and Pep Pep McCallen. Faced all at once with the stinging loss of her beloved father, a new home, a new school and a new city, Callie throws herself into locating a new dance studio, the only element of her new existence over which she seems to have any control. None of the studios she and her mom visit seem to measure up to her old dance school, until she happens upon On Stage Dance Studio, which in addition to traditional classes, offers the allure of three dance companies, and the excitement of local and national competitions. Callie, who has studied ballet, tap and jazz since she was three years old, thinks herself well on her way to a professional career - that is until she meets Lori McKenna, a formidable dancer with a seemingly unnamed influence at On Stage and a penchant for making Callie's life miserable. Will Callie rise to the challenge of a life in a new city, a new dance studio, a new school and the irresistible draw of an 'audition only' dance company?show more
