Review quote

"Gail Sidonie Sobat is a writer of great dexterity, utilizing humour, sarcasm, wit, and tragedy, all to create a narrative that is flowing, energetic, and inspirational."?-- CM Magazine "Sobat. . . does an admirable job of sustaining an engaging authenticity in her narrative. . . " -- Resource Links "Chance to Dance is able to go where few LGBTQ teen novels have gone before: beyond the coming--out novel." -- Canadian Children's Book News ." . . read this very real and bittersweet story that juxtaposes love with prejudice, courage with fear, and sensitivity with harshness." -- Helen K, CanLit for Little Canadians "It is. . . wonderful to read a novel about a queer youth who is happily, unambivalently gay and is accepted by family and close friends." -- OUTVisions Magazineshow more

Back cover copy

Ian lives in a suburb where everything's the same. The houses are the same, the cars are the same, and their aspirations are the same. But Ian is different. Openly gay in his bigoted high school, Ian doesn't exactly fit in. But he's not worried -- he's been training in dance for a long time and soon he'll be able to leave town and train to become a professional. Then he falls in love with Jess, the high school quarterback. . .show more
