Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Summer Whiting
Ruby cannot wait to for the show to begin. The Wallace Park Spirit Drill Team, led by Ruby's older cousin, Keeva, is about to start. Excitement whips through the gym as the girls begin to dance. Ruby is fixated on becoming just like Keeva and puts a plan into motion to start a drill team at her very own elementary school. Later Ruby calls a meeting to order regarding the Chill Brook Steppers. She has set out to recruit the best of the best. The only problem is there are only two girls buying into the plan: Ruby and her best friend, Teresa. Marcellus, Ruby's big brother, takes it upon himself to coach the new team. Unfortunately, his coaching skills are not up to par. Ruby fractures her wrist while learning to flip. She will spend the next several weeks in a cast. Ruby wants to spend time with Keeva and her drill team. She arrives one afternoon to find that no one is dressed to flip or perform. There is no music. Ruby is confused. Keeva explains that occasionally they are cheerleaders for those who are in need of a boost. They help out those who are less fortunate and feed the homeless when they are not practicing. This is the type of team Ruby can be a part of, with or without a cast. She calls the girls together again and this time they put their plan into action. The Chill Brook Steppers have arrived, ready to help those in need. Ruby couldn't be happier with her new role. This charming story is a great way to show children that they can make a difference in the community, no matter how young. Reviewer: Summer Whiting
