Tesstarosa avatar reviewed on + 151 more book reviews

At thirteen, Kaylee has advanced to a higher level of dancing and needs to spend more time training and practicing so she can continue on in dance. But something exciting has happened â her Aunt Kat, her mom's sister, has moved to town from Chicago. Her Aunt Kat is a marathon runner and really encourages Kaylee to train and be her best.

But Kaylee thinks her Grandma Birdsall must be getting worse, because she is spending her days over with her Aunt Kat while her mother is at work. Then Aunt Kat announces that she plans to take the whole family to Ireland for Christmas.

Kaylee is very excited about this. As an Irish dancer, going to Ireland to compete is a dream and Kaylee thinks that being able to go there for a vacation before she goes for a competition will help her be a better competitor in the future. Mostly because she will then be able to focus on the dancing and not what she going to get to see in Ireland.

Then Kaylee learns the truth about why her Aunt Kat has moved and it causes a major change in everyone's life.

Another great story in the continuing saga of Kaylee O'Shay. She still has the girls that pick on her, her good friends and is really starting to focus on what she needs to do to be her best.

*This is a young adult fiction book â I read it because I gave it to my nieces for Christmas 2009.
