"Talent played a part, obviously, but talent was never enough without the will and discipline to really work."
Twins Max and Emily at the top of their class and love absolutely everything to do with dancing. All of their hopes and dreams hinge on becoming professional ballet dancers.
Then, the unthinkable happens. They lose their parents and their whole lives are turned upside down. Their new guardian absolutely refuses to allow the twins to dance. For the first time, Max and Emily will have to fight for their aspirations.
This is the first time in which I read a book about a boy dancing where the main conflict wasn't "boys don't dance." Talk about refreshing. Max is never told that dancing is lame, or girly, or gay, or whatever easy argument is thrown at boys who like to dance.
His sister and family are encouraging, and even evil Aunt Kimberly doesn't belittling Max's male-ness by making fun of dancing. Despite all her faults,she is at least equally cruel to both children.
I thought this book dealt with grief in a thoughtful and age-appropriate manner. And the book didn't dwell too long on the sorrow, there were plenty of happy and inspirational moments to balance it out.
I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to the sequel!
This story surrounds twins Max and Emily Cooper. It starts at the beginning of their discovery of ballet and their shared passion for dance. They are highly competitive with each other while encouraging the best from the other sibling while they grow in brilliance. Everything comes to a sudden halt after a devastating accident leaves them feeling hopeless. Watch as their support and love for each other shines while learning to live with loss under unfavorable circumstances.
It really upset me that they were not allowed to dance and had to fight to be able to do so but it did show how important dance was to them.
Max is never told that dancing is not for boys which you don't find much of that these days.
I will be recommending this book to others!
