About the Book

Seventh grader, Alexis, longs to dance with the world-renowned Dance Company, which originated in Paris where her grandmother, Numsie, lives and was the premier dancer for. Having danced since she was four, Alexis was heartbroken to not make her last audition. Since then, she’s practiced long and hard for the upcoming one, and it’s a must that she makes it, since those that do will perform not only in New York for the Christmas holiday, but also in Paris for the New Year’s Celebration. Not only that, but this will be the fifty-year anniversary of The Dance Company, and her grandmother will be making a special appearance which Alexis can’t miss. But, soon, huge trials come her way, and Alexis’ dreams are shattered, when she turns to her faith knowing she needs to trust God. Will she make the team and the New Year’s celebration? Will her dance dreams come true? Or will God take her on a different path, one she didn’t expect?

About the Author

Joanne Currence’s first memories of writing started with a locked diary as a young girl in Minnesota. She loved writing her thoughts and feelings about all that was happening in her life, especially knowing they’d be kept secret. As a teen, those words found their way into journals, capturing those memorable life moments . . . from summer camp adventures and fun family trips, to travels to Europe during her college years. Throughout an elementary teaching career, Joanne’s favorite times were writing with her students. It was a delight to see what stories they’d come up with, as most of them loved it, too. Joanne lives in Colorado and loves it there, where the mountains are gorgeous and the sun rarely hides. She enjoys golf, hiking, biking, and skiing, along with entertaining friends at home and venturing off to tropical places.
