"Dancers will find this book enjoyable and non-dancers will learn about the finesse of the art...Jasmine's character shows great inner strength under adversity and is a positive model for teen girls on how to handle bullying."

"A sweet, feel-good story."
Booklist - February 14, 2014
"Leach provides a compelling story of emotional growth while giving readers an authentic view of contemporary dance and competition...The smooth, graceful writing matches the subject nicely...The plot is heartily centered on learning social and emotional confidence, but Jasmine’s relationship with Will adds a nice fillip without detracting from the core message. As with most books from this publisher, its brevity never takes away from good storytelling. Dedicated dancers would
appreciate this paired with Siena Cherson Siegel’s nonfiction graphic novel, To Dance (2006)."

"A fast-paced, enjoyable read that [will have] you simultaneously resenting Jasmine’s teammates as well as cheering for the team to come together. Demonstrating perseverance and sportsmanship, this is a great read for girls interested in dance."

"A sweet story that will surely leave a smile on your face. Not only does it capture the beauty and emotion of dance, but also the power of friendship. Jasmine is a girl who you cannot help but love and cheer for. She brings out happiness in herself and her teammates, as well as her straight-laced dance instructor. You will not want to put the book down as you wait for the characters in the book to come together as a true team. This book is simply a sweet, refreshing breath of fresh air."
