Up to This Pointe

Up To This Pointe Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Up to This Pointe by Jennifer Longo Book Summary:

Harper had a plan. It went south. Hand this utterly unique contemporary YA to anyone who loves ballet or is a little too wrapped up in their Plan A. (It's okay to fail, people!) Harper Scott is a dancer. She and her best friend, Kate, have one goal: becoming professional ballerinas. And Harper won’t let anything—or anyone—get in the way of The Plan, not even the boy she and Kate are both drawn to. Harper is a Scott. She’s related to Robert Falcon Scott, the explorer who died racing Amundsen and Shackleton to the South Pole. Amundsen won because he had a plan, and Harper has always followed his model. So when Harper’s life takes an unexpected turn, she finagles (read: lies) her way to the icy dark of McMurdo Station . . . in Antarctica. Extreme, but somehow fitting—apparently she has always been in the dark, dancing on ice this whole time. And no one warned her. Not her family, not her best friend, not even the boy who has somehow found a way into her heart. It will take a visit from Shackleton's ghost--the explorer who didn't make it to the South Pole, but who got all of his men out alive--to teach Harper that success isn't always what's important, sometimes it's more important to learn how to fail successfully. A Kids' Indie Next List Selection "Longo makes Harper a standout character of fire, commitment, and sass." —The Bulletin, Starred Review "A stunning love letter to ballet and San Francisco, Jennifer Longo's (Six Feet Over It) quirky sophomore novel, Up to This Pointe, is the perfect meld of adorable and heart-wrenching." —Shelf Awareness, Starred Review "One of the most breathtaking explorations of navigating heartbreak that I've ever read. This is one for the ages." —Martha Brockenbrough, author of The Game of Love and Death "Longo's book brings the reader intimately into Harper's heartbreak and healing in a way that will speak to readers of all ages." —Anna Eklund, University Book Store, Seattle, WA "Incisively written. Longo makes it easy to commiserate with Harper as she tries to move past disappointment and envision a new path forward." —Publishers Weekly "A moving love letter to dance, dreams, and San Francisco." —Kirkus Reviews "Harper is a well-developed, relatable character. Her inner monologue is witty and dominates most of the novel, giving a unique perspective. . . . A recommended read for determined teens with an interest in following and exploring their dreams." —School Library Journal "Harper’s temporary Antarctic life is evoked with as much vivid, fascinating detail as her 'second home,' the ballet studio. . . . An affecting, memorable examination of disappointment and loss." —The Horn Book Review "Longo's fabulous depiction of McMurdo and the winter residents captures the beauty, humor, and danger of such an isolated existence. An adventure story with lots of heart." —Booklist From the Hardcover edition.

She attends the prestigious SA Ballet Academy - an eerie old ballet school bursting with secrets...and where nothing is quite what it seems. Now the Grade 7s at the academy are putting on a performance of the enchanting ballet Giselle, and Gemma is determined to get a lead role. But the discovery of a 100-year-old mystery in the depths of the old academy building one moonlit night, stiff competition from the other teen dancers, and the constant harassment of Super Snob and star performer, Aimee Atherton, all threaten to derail Gemma's chances. Plus cute new boy Ethan Blake has just transferred to the academy from a top London ballet school, and he's complicating things even further. Will Gemma get her chance to dance? Readers will fall in love with sassy Gemma and her alluring sense of adventure, as well as best friends Marley Moon and Dineo as they get to grips with life in this unusual ballet school with its enchanting setting and larger-than-life characters. Dance with your Heart is the first book in the delightful SA Ballet Academy series of fantasy dance and ballet books for girls. "As a hardened ballet teacher of many years of back-breaking work in my beloved profession, I fell in love with the characters in DANCE WITH YOUR HEART. An extremely enjoyable read, it is also fun and catches with great wit, the foibles of both fellow pupils and teachers. This is a great book for parents and all ages of dancers to read - for those of us for whom the magic of dance will always continue." Amy Gould, Editor: Imaginemag "I read the first book, DANCE WITH YOUR HEART. My daughter Megan and myself couldn't wait to read the book, we both enjoyed it so much. It kept us captivated. Thank you Bronwyn for a wonderful book. Looking forward to the next one!" Sanet, reader "I absolutely adored DANCE WITH YOUR HEART. I really enjoyed the story and all the characters! I even felt different in my first dance class after reading it! I can't wait for the next one!" Taylor, 13, reader "When I read DANCE WITH YOUR HEART I felt as though I'd been granted access to a world filled with magic and dance, where anything was possible. I LOVED this novel. Gemma had me wishing I was a ballerina and attending a ballet academy from page one; she showed me the excitement and struggles dancers face from beautiful costumes, long lasting friendships and even bleeding toes! With characters that dived out of the novel and pirouetted across my room, it was easy to imagine them as my best friends, rather than characters in a book. They were easy to love and oh-so real. All I wanted to do was step out of my room and visit Gemma on stage or, have a conversation with Ethan or burn Aimee to the ground because I hated her. I loved the journey the group took together and can't wait to see what else they discover at SABA!" Storm, 15, reader "My 14-year-old daughter loved this book and says it has a real story - it is not just a little girl's book about tutus and tiaras. There's a ghost called Emily and a cute boy too..." Sasha Wyatt-Minter, editor: All4Women
