Great book from the American Girl of Today series about a girl from Chicago who loves to dance. When she is forced to move to an area that doesn't have anyplace to take lessons, she becomes sad but with the help of some friends in the neighborhood and her teacher, she finds new options. A good story that encourages friendship, hope, and perseverance.
