Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that allows us to spotlight books we are eagerly anticipating to be released.
Yes, I'm a little late but I still wanted to get this out. I have known Tonja Drecker as a blogger for a while. She's fun, infection and a hard worker. Imagine my surprise finding out this month that she has a book coming out. Due to my health issues and personal stuff, I have fallen behind on blogging and news. Finding this out though makes me very happy. Tonja has reviewed and supported books for young readers for years. She's the perfect person to bring such a book to life. Congrats girl, I can't wait to read your book in 2019.
Release Date: February 5, 2019
Blurb: I only desire your talent. . .
Twelve-year-old Lindsey McKay's biggest dream is to be a famous ballerina. But after moving to New York, she ends up at the Community Center with a teacher who’s a burly bear in tights.
When she meets Madame Destinée, the teacher of a top dance school who offers her classes for free, Lindsey can't believe her luck. In exchange, she must perform in the school’s exclusive midnight shows, ones sure to make her a star. But something’s not right...
One by one, the other dancers disappear. Each time they do, a music box with a figurine just like the missing ballerina joins Madame Destinée’s growing collection. If Lindsey doesn’t discover the truth about the dance school, she might end up a tiny figurine herself.
