Another Way to Dance by Martha Southgate

Fourteen-year-old Vicki Harris's dream has come true. She has been accepted into the summer program at New York City's prestigious School of American Ballet. It will be hard work and highly competitive, but Vicki feels ready. She is totally committed to dancing.

Vicki isn't prepared to be one of only two African-American students in the program. Nor is she expecting the racism she finds within the school. And Michael, from Harlem, takes Vicki completely by surprise. He shakes up her dream world—where Baryshnikov is her idol, her parents never really got divorced, and every pirouette is perfect—and shows her that the real world is bigger than a stage.

This book was about a young African American girl who moves to New York to join a summer dance school. In New York, she lives with her Aunt Hannah who is an actress. She meets a friend named Stacey and they are the only to black girls in the company. She was in love with a dancer whose name was Misha. He would be at Macy¿s on Monday morning and she was going to go meet him. She stood in line for hours and when she got up to him he didn¿t even look at her when he was signing her poster. She would be tuning 15 in a week so her aunt thew a party for her and had her divorced parents come up and not fight with each other. She ended up loving her party and all the presents everyone got her. On the last day of class her Stacey and their friend Debbie were all stretching together and discussing whether or not they think they would be invited back in the fall. They all had a good class so when they were done, they went up to Stacey¿s dorm room and waited for them to post the list of who was invited back. You should read this book and find out who got invited back to join the company!

I really liked this book. I have slient reading time on day 3 and I forgot my book, so I went to my Language Arts teacher and asked her for a book and she gave me 'Another Way to Dance'. I started to read it and I really enjoyed it. I asked her if I could keep it to read the rest. I read it about 4 billion times before I gave it back.

I loved this book! It kinda gave a description of what life at SAB is, and the truth behind a dancer. All I can really say is this book is AMAZING!
