Twelve year-old Dot is not a dancer, but after her mother’s sudden and senseless death, she finds herself dancing on the edge…of everything. After her whole world unravels in seconds, Dot is propelled on a voyage to discover the meaning of her past, and of her mother’s greatest gift to her.
With all familiar anchors swept away, Dot’s trip becomes a struggle between finding that gift and running away from a future that feels so bleak. Pack your bags for a memorable, powerful journey into life in the wake of profound loss.
This book is a must-read for any tweens and teens that have suffered loss. It is an entertaining and gripping read for all those, adults, YAs and tweens alike who love authentic characters, novels with a strong sense of place, and riveting storyline. - Jennifer (Goodreads)
