When Bea decides to take ballet, she finds it tough at first. But then she makes a new friend, Margaret, who convinces her to try out for The Nutcracker. They both make it, but then things start to go downhill. When Margaret gets a chance to dance the starring role, Bea discovers that some dancers who don't like Margaret are planning to sabotage the ballet. Can Bea somehow stop them and help her friend? Chock-full of authentic detail that ballet fans will love, Christine McDonnell's keen eye for the problems and feelings of her readers make Ballet Bug the perfect read for anyone who loves ballet-or simply a good story.
