Fiona Finkelstein loves to dance, but she is terrified of being on stage. When she is, she tends to vomit or dance disastrously. To make matters worse, both her parents don’t understand her predicament. Her mom is a California soap opera star and her dad is a weather man for the local tv station. To help get over her fear, she enlists the help of her friend, Chloe. Can the two together help Fiona overcome her fears?

A funny, engaging read for fans of Junie B. Jones. The characters are likable and entertaining. The plot is simple, but does a great job of drawing the reader in. Readers who like humor, realistic fiction, and friendship stories will enjoy reading this book. EL- ADVISABLE. Reviewer: Kira M, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
