Aspiring ballerina-slash-amateur detective Dani Spevak is back in this humorous short story!
Dani and her friends are spending spring break in beautiful Sedona, Arizona for the annual Southwest Teen Arts Festival. But how can she concentrate on performing when her not-quite-boyfriend is in town filming the lead in a hot new vampire movie... and he was seen kissing his costar?
“I really dug Amanda Brice’s Twilight parody. So awesome!”
—Mari Mancusi, author of Skater Boy
"The best things don't only happen when you're dancing...they also happen when you're reading Amanda Brice!"
—NY Times Bestselling Author Gemma Halliday

As a little girl, Amanda Brice dreamed of being either a ballerina or the author of a mystery series featuring a cool crime-solving chick named Nancy Flew, but her father urged her to "do something practical," so she went to law school and spent her days writing briefs and pleadings instead of fiction.
But dance and writing have remained a part of her life. Amanda was a member of the ballroom dance team at Duke University, and continues this interest by her obsession with Dancing with the Stars, so it was only natural for her to set a teen mystery series at a dance school.
