Mataya "Mattie" Black Hawk loves dancing. Music, more than anything else, helps her deal with the scars of her childhood. In her effort to land a spot as a regular on a local teen dance show, she gets more than she bargained for.
The plot moves quickly, with the right balance of character development and action.
Student reviewer: I liked the element of mystery; it was really exciting.
None. Although you don't need to read Secrets and Kisses first, you may want to so you can understand references to the characters in that story.
Student reviewer: It was over too fast.
This book is a great mystery and love story. This would be a great read for high school girls: it is a mystery and a love story, so they get the best of both worlds. I picked the book because of the description on the back made it look interesting. I couldn't put it down, and I want to read it again. It was really entertaining.
This is a fun, fast read (even if you're not a teen anymore). It's a nice follow-on to Secrets and Kisses.
This is a mystery adventure for young adults.
Although principally just a fictional novel, teens trying to come to grips with "family secrets" may find a kindred spirit in Mattie.

Buy. It's a great book story for the money.
