Just in time for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, here's a delightful little confection that's sure to please the wishful dreamers watching the figure skating competitions on TV.
Esperanza Flores finds her ice dreams coming true, but when she nabs a spot on the U.S. ladies' figure skating team and heads for the Olympics, she's hit with unbelievable pressure. Not only is she the first Latina skater to reach the Olympics, but she's dealing with some backlash for replacing an injured skater. Does she really belong on the team? Can she deal with classic "Mean Girl" drama? And a couple of hunky guys who share her ice?
Fizzy, frothy fun for 4th through middle school grade readers!
