Overview

Jessica is worse than worried when she learns that the Nutcracker School of Ballet might lose its lease! Life just wouldn't be the same without the ballet classes she shares with her Sugar Plum sisters. Her problems mount when she rescues an adorable stray kitty on her way home from class. The animal shelters can't take the cat for weeks, so Jessica hopes the cat can live at the Nutcracker School in the meantime. But the school is already in trouble, and a cat could be just what the landlord needs to bring down the curtain on the ballerinas-permanently.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Heidi Hauser Green
Triplets Jessica, Jerzey Mae, and JoAnn are upset when they find out that the Nutcracker School of Ballet, run by their beloved Ms. Debbe may have to close. The original leaseholder has died, and the new owner is eager to find a violation of the school's lease agreement so that he can have the building razed for condos. Unfortunately, Jessica finds this out when she brings a stray kitten into the school—a clear violation! The school is going to have to close, unless the girls can find a way to save it. At the same time, Jessica is trying to take care of the kitten without her parents finding out. Her feline-allergic father is out of town for business, thankfully, but there are three weeks until a no-kill shelter can take it. Tension mounts as what looks to be the school's final recital draws near. Will the Sugar Plum sisters and friends be able to save the kitten, the school, and their futures in dance? An unexpected surprise just might help. As characters, the triplets seem flat but likeable. Secondary characters are peripheral and cartoonish. Still, readers of the "Sugar Plum Ballerinas" series will cheer at the girls' success. Reviewer: Heidi Hauser Green
