When Indigo is singled out for a coveted solo she feels her dreams are finally within reach, until she discovers she’s dancing with Felipe Gonzalez, the school’s smolderingly hot rising star.

This is the second book in this series and they must be read in order. Indigo has made it into the New York School of Ballet and is finding it more difficult than she imagined it would be. She can't get a read on what the teacher are thinking. She isn't sure if they are being hard on her because they think that she has potential or if it is because she is that bad. She lives in constant doubt of herself. They she meets a new boy in class from Brazil his name is Felipe. Indigo has so much going on between regular classes and ballet classes yet so doesn't seem to be happy with any of it. Ballet is what she wants for her future but how long will she be able to continue on this way. She has made some new friends one of them is an unexpected friend. Indigo is in for a tough year. She will learn a lot about herself and what is truly important. She will learn what she can handle and who her true friends are. I enjoyed reading this book. It has some good lessons in it. Indigo is a great girl and she is going through what almost all girls her age go through. I did feel bad for some of things she went through. Plus she wants to be so perfect but she learns to be happy with her best. I wonder if there will be another book in this series and where it will take Indigo next. The end is great and wraps everything up nice and neat. Grier is a great author. She creates a world with her words. Great job Grier Cooper.
