"In lyrical, deeply moving verse, REENI'S TURN shares

both the joy and beauty of dance

and the cruel self-doubt caused by our culture's obsession with thinness.

This is an extraordinarily empowering book". 


—Claudia Mills, author of Zero Tolerance and Nixie Ness, Cooking Star (After-School Superstars)

REENI'S TURN and SEL/Emotional Resilience here.

Order at links below:

is the story of a young dancer
struggling with lifelong shyness
and anxiety,
and now with a newly-developing
and expanding body
that does not match
the ballerina posters
on her bedroom wall.
After taking a wrong turn,
Reeni realizes she must choose
between coming to terms with her natural limitations,
or take a chance on becoming
the girl of her dreams.
The story addresses universal themes of emotional resilience, body acceptance, and the search for courage, identity, and voice.
