Cloudberry Castle : Ballet School Secrets by Janey Louise Jones
Ballet-mad Katie Mackenzie and her family have opened the Cloudberry Castle School of Dance. Living at the school should be great: there are lots of girls to make friends with; a new ballet teacher has arrived from the Scottish Ballet; Katie can dance all day, and her mum is her ballet teacher. But when posh girl Leo arrives, with her chauffeur and faddy diet, she threatens to ruin everything. Leo might be spoilt rotten but she's a brilliant dancer -- perhaps even better than Katie. Will Leo out-dance Katie and get to play the principal role of Princess Aurora in the Christmas performance of The Sleeping Beauty? As the dance drama unfolds, Katie and her friends discover a statue of a little ballerina in the castle's grounds: could it lead them to uncover more of Cloudberry Castle's hidden secrets? The second story about Katie's ballet adventures at Cloudberry Castle, full of gorgeous girly charm.
'From the Cloudberry Castle series, this sturdy paperback creates an appealing boarding-school setting as well as a realistic tension between what Katie wants and what she must do to help ensure the school's financial stability. Katie makes a sympathetic narrator, sharing her story as events unfold. Jones, who lives in Scotland, offers ballet fans a chapter book with an unusual setting, an engaging story, and the promise of more adventures to come.'
