From 'Dancing with the Stars' winner Emma Freedman, a coming-of-age story that draws on Emma's childhood dance experience. Ages: 9+ April Franklin is 13 years of age and has just started high school. April has also been dancing half her life and while she loves ballet, she's not sure if classical is right for her, particularly since she doesn't have the perfect ballet body - and of course all of the mean girls at her ballet school do ... There are, however, many ways to dance, and when April has the opportunity to explore them she leaps at the chance, even though she is very aware that her mother has high hopes for her as a classical dancer. New school, mean girls, stage mothers, big dreams ... sometimes finding your feet can be hard. Age: 9+
