Summer’s Dream

SUMMER is quiet, confident, pretty, popular and VERY serious about dance . . .

Summer has always dreamed of dancing, and when a place at ballet school comes up, she wants it so badly it hurts.

Middle school ends and the holidays begin, but unlike her sisters, Summer has no time for lazy days and sunny beach parties. The audition becomes her obsession, and things start spiralling out of control . . .

The more Summer tries to find perfection, the more lost she becomes. Will she realise – with the help of the boy who wants more than friendship – that dreams come in all shapes and sizes?

  2. Summers dream us definitely my fave Cathy cassidy book as I love to dance and often put myself under pressure trying to be the best but this book made me realize that I don’t need to be perfect and now I am better at dancing then I could ever be so I guess I am thankful for reading this book. I loved dressing up as summer for world book day

  7. I love the chocolate box girls series and summers dream is amazing! I think that it is very interesting following the story and seeing her mindset change. It shows her becoming insecure about her body and feeling like there is no one to talk to. I want to say how I think her breakup with Aaron / fight with Jodie / argument with the ballet teacher are linked to the fact she is running away from her problems. At the end of each of the fights she always ends up running away. She wants perfection and when things fall apart she freaks out. Great book!
