A sequel to Tutu Much, this book provides the same quality of story and life lessons, again without being preachy or overbearing. Kelsi, from the first book, is back from her summer ballet intensive, and resumes dancing at her old studio. Rivalries and typical teen-girl drama flares as the girls try and learn new dances, incorporate the new girl, and deal with full schedules, competition, and sometimes overbearing parents.
The characters in this book deal with peer pressure, bending the rules, balancing school and hobbies, cliques, trying to fit in, and the constant pressure to be skinny and perfect. They make mistakes along the way, but lessons are learned by all as the story progresses.
I think this book is great for any young girl who is interested in dancing - like the previous book, girls will enjoy the story, and parents will enjoy the positive messages it conveys.

This book is one in a series, I have read the other two books: Tutu Much and Tap In. I enjoyed this book just as much as the other two books. The author does a really good job writing about young girls with dreams and aspirations and how it takes dedication and determination to achieve those dreams. Along the way you may run into some issues such as peer pressure, overbearing parents, very competitive peers etc but in the end what is most important is how you handle yourself. I think these books are great for young people to read.
