The book is about a family of a grandma, a young mama with three girls, and a young brother living in the house with hardwood floors. It was a wooded country house. One little girl remembered the floors were clean and the beds were high with very white sheets where she and her little uncle would play with lightning bugs at night when the house was dark. There were no men in the house. She and her mother would go down to their cousin?s house and dance; that?s why she thought she and her mom would be super team dancers. She didn?t know anything about the big world out there and what it takes to be a successful dancer. She kept searching for that loving family or the same treatment and has been afraid to have her own place so she can get that kind of treatment.
