Synopsis

Skate School 1: Ice Princess by Kay Woodward

Francesca Willis is sharp, funny and quirky, but let's face it, pretty average...until you see her blades hit the ice. Then Frankie is truly spectacular. Frankie's love and flair for ice-skating means she's dedicated to practising at her local ice-rink every morning, teaching herself the hottest moves and the toughest spins. And her dreams look like they might come true when she is offered a place at team GB's Olympic training school, far from home in the idyllic Swiss mountains. But while the school boasts world-class tuition and promises sporting success, its super-privileged pupils are so cool they're practically sub-zero. Frankie's going to have to work hard to form friendships and fine-tune her talent in this fiercely competitive environment. After all, Frankie has talent, dedication and passion - but does she have what it takes to be a winner?
