A New Read!

When The Stars Go Blue
by Caridad Ferrer

Dance is Soledad Reyes's life. About to graduate from Miami's Biscayne High School for the Performing Arts, Soledad plans on spending her last summer at home working in a dance studio, saving up money, and eventually auditioning for dance companies. That is, until fate intervenes in the form of fellow student Jonathan Crandall with what sounds like an outrageous proposition. Forget teaching. Why not actually dance, in front of an audience, in the intense environment of competitive drum and bugle corps? The corps is going to be performing Carmen, and the role of the sultry gypsy is Soledad's dream role. She joins the troupe and she and Jonathan grow closer. But a competitor for her affections soon makes himself known: Taz, a member of an all-star Spanish soccer team. One explosive encounter later and Soledad finds not only her relationship with Jonathan threatened, but her future as a professional dancer as well.
