Welcome Back to Lakewood
is now available on Amazon.com
Sara is back at dance camp determined to win a scholarship to the New York City Ballet school. But Robin wants it too! And things are different from last year: there's a boys dance camp across the lake, new cabin mates, new teachers, and Erin isn't there. Sara is a dynamite competitor with a true passion for ballet, but that might not be enough to get her the scholarship. She has to be a ballet standout and find a path to what she wants. Sometimes we get something different.

“Young dancers should be easily drawn into the passions and frustrations of Sara and her friends and the nicely evoked upper Michigan setting,” says Publishers Weekly.
"Summer Dance is new, timely, engrossing--refreshing!" Rita Kohn, Senior Writer, NUVO Newsweekly.
