Mina jumped out over the back steps and landed in a fifth position demi-plie. Arms out, back straight, she bent her knees into grand-plie, and then up, sliding into fourth position. (from the first line)
From the Publisher:
A dashed dream leads to a rash decision in the fifth installment of Cynthia Voigt's Tillerman cycle.Mina Smiths lives to dance, so her scholarship to ballet camp seems like a dream come true. She doesn't even mind being the only black girl in the troupe?that is, until she is told she'll never be a classical dancer. It's then that Mina begins to face some difficult truths about race and identity and transfers her passion for dance to Tamer Shipp, the summer minister for her church. The problem is, he's a grown man with a family, but she can't stop wishing for more to their friendship than simply pastor and parishioner.

     Cynthia Voigt's incomparable mastery of character and community shines forth in this stirring novel from her acclaimed Tillerman cycle.

Author Bio
Cynthia Voigt
Cynthia Voigt decided in the ninth grade that she wanted to become a writer. She attended Smith College, and after graduation moved to New York where she worked for an advertising agency. After marrying her first husband in 1964, she moved with him to New Mexico where she became a teacher. The couple had one daughter and divorced in 1972. Voigt and her daughter moved to Maryland, where she continued to work as a teacher. It was while searching for books to share with her class of fifth graders that Voigt began to get ideas for young adult and juvenile books that she could write herself. Her first book, HOMECOMING, was published in 1981. The sequel to that book, DICEY'S SONG, won the Newbery Medal in 1983 and, the following year, A SOLITARY BLUE--a companion piece to DICEY'S SONG--was named a Newbery Honor Book.
