Yara loves ballet more than anything, ever since she first stumbled into a ballet class by mistake age four. Her family move a lot because of her dad’s job but now at last they’re staying put which means she can attend Miss Diamond’s ballet school.

It’s bliss, everything Yara has dreamed off. She makes friends and learns all the major ballet positions, but then her newfound ballet class is threatened when Miss Diamond’s grumpy landlady threatens to close the studio. Yara comes up with a rescue plan, with everything resting on a performance of The Sleeping Beauty.

With an irresistible cast of characters – keen and not-so-keen ballerinas – and the insight into dancing and the camaraderie of performance that only a professional can bring (author Yasmine Naghdi is principal dancer of the Royal Ballet), this is a must-buy for young ballet fans but will appeal just as much to readers who love friendship stories and stories about putting on a show.
