"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)

A novel in verse about a tween's search for body acceptance, courage, and her own strong voice.
 
Reeni's Turn 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.
