Slip Jig Summer is a high-interest novel for teens and is part of the Orca Limelights collection:
Fifteen-year-old Natalie is obsessed with ballet and plans to spend the entire summer in dance class with her two best friends. But when her mom gets a job out of town, Natalie gets shipped off to stay with cousins she barely knows.
Natalie is thrilled when her cousins invite her to join them at the local dance studio. But it turns out it’s not a ballet class; it’s Irish dance. Skeptical at first, Natalie is surprised to learn she really enjoys the new dance style and agrees to take part in an upcoming competition. But this new passion could result in Natalie having to leave her ballet dreams behind.
