Jake LoSanto is making his professional ballet debut with the Imperial Dance Company in New York City. This is an exceptional accomplishment for a ten-year-old boy, but he tells no one outside his family as he fears that he will be bullied for his ballet dancing.
Jake finds that hiding the truth leads him to other lies that turn him into a person he doesn't like. In protecting himself from the possibility of bullying, he loses who he really is and finds he has the ability to hurt others.
Dancing with the Truth is the sequel to Nobody's Purr-fect (Especially Not Georgie). The reader will connect again with Jake, Todd, Dad, Grandma, and Grandpa LoSanto, as well as their beloved and unique cat, Georgie. What does Jake learn from his pet? Is there anything that is more important than protecting ourselves from the actions of others? Who should make the decisions about how we live our lives? What can we learn from Jake's experience?
