Praise for Silver Shoes 5: Broadway Baby

“Once again, the author's expertise shines through and while the key focus is on the dancing element, she still holds a mirror to the life of this age group who are branching out into new ventures and friendships as they try out new independence. Each reader sees herself as the lead character on the stage but can also relate to the challenges that have to be faced to get there.”

Barbara Braxton, OZ_TLnet
