The Audition

The Audition

Summary

Dance has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember: that's why I'm so excited to have collaborated on this series for you with Julia DeVillers! I can't wait for you to meet the DanceStarz.

Twelve-year-old Harper is a top dancer at her studio, when her parents drop the bombshell: they are moving, so she'll have to say goodbye to her beloved team. At her new ?studio, the competition is fierce. And it doesn't help that her new team, the DanceStarz, aren't exactly welcoming.
Thankfully, Harper meets Lily, a fellow newbie who is just as eager to find a friend. Slowly, the girls begin to gel. At their first competition as a team, they are ready to show everyone what they are made of. But disaster strikes right before they are about to compete. The DanceStarz must work together, and discover what friendship and teamwork are all about...

I hope Harper and the DanceStarz inspire you to pursue your passions and follow your dreams!

Happy reading!

Love,
Maddie Ziegler
