Overview

A teenage dancer is desperate to escape her small town—and her family’s past—in this “lively and absorbing story with all the drama of teen life” (Kirkus Reviews).

Magnolia Woodson’s mother didn’t just do a terrible thing. She also left Mags and her sister Rose to deal with it. Forced to put up with snide comments and hateful looks from the clamming-obsessed residents of Summerland, Oregon, the only time Mags feels free is when she’s in the dance studio.

But when a televised dance competition posts tryouts in nearby Portland, Mags’s best friend, George, insists they go audition. Winning the grand-prize might just be enough to get Mags and Rose out of Summerland for good. This is her chance to do the thing she loves most and show the town that she’s not a “no-good Woodson girl,” like her mother.

But will the competition prove too steep? And will Mags and George retain their friendship when they go head-to-head in tryouts? Mags will have to learn that following her dreams may mean changing her life forever.
