Just Dance
by Patricia MacLachlan




Overview -
" A] memorable story." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

From Newbery Award-winning author Patricia MacLachlan comes a "quiet tale about finding your own voice" (Kirkus Reviews) while learning to understand the people you love the most.

Sylvie Bloom wants to find something new and exciting this summer--at least more exciting than the cows, goats, and chickens on her family's farm that she's become accustomed to. Luckily, Sylvie's teacher Mrs. Ludolf has the perfect idea. Sylvie can take over her husband Sheriff Ludolf's column in the newspaper for the summer, reporting on all the important events that happen in their small Wyoming town. Sylvie is thrilled to have a new challenge, but she's not sure she'll actually see anything amazing. At least nothing like the things her mother saw when she traveled the world as a famous opera singer.

Sylvie can't figure out why her mother would give up singing in front of thousands of people. Have she and her brother Nate been holding her mother back? And when her mother's old duet partner James Grayson writes that he's coming to perform nearby, will she be tempted to return to the stage, without them?
