SHOWTIME by Sheryl Berk. Illustrated by Mark Donna. Dance Divas series. Bloomsbury, New York: 2013 151p. ISBN: 978-1-61963-182-3 hb. $15.99.  Gr. 2-4  Juv.

From what I can tell, this book is probably pretty accurate with how things are for young girls hrough their teens in the dance world.  The moms, the friends, the not so friendly girls and the dance instructor all come alive in "Showtime!"  I will be recommending this book to all little dancers that come through our doors at our library.  They are sure to enjoy the friendships between the girls.  They might even hold their breath a few times like I did cause you want your favorite to win.  This is sure to be the start of a new series that will have all it's readers waiting for the next in the series to come
