Patty's Last Dance
Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group, Dec 1, 1992 - Juvenile Fiction - 135 pages
Scared and alone... Patty Gilbert has dreamed of being a ballerina since she was a little girl. Following her dream has meant making sacrifices, and one thing Patty has never had time for is friends. But when she beats out her biggest rival, Kerry Glenn, for the lead role in Swan Lake, Patty is sure it's all been worth it. Then Patty learns she has scoliosis, which means she'll have to wear a back brace for several years. Patty feels as if all her dreams have been shattered and the worst part is she has nowhere to turn for support. Kerry has always acted friendly--and she's the only person who really seems to understand how Patty feels about ballet. But can Patty trust Kerry with her secret?
