AbstractHistoryArchive Description

All her life, bubbly redhead Carmen Morton has dreamed of being a dancer in a West End musical. When she's accepted into the Dance Centre, a prestigious dance training school, it seems she's half-way there. Leaving home for the first time, sixteen-year-old Carmen is caught in a whirl of freedoms. She soon learns that the price of independence may be higher than she had expected - and that friends are not always what they seem.... (Back cover blurb).

Notes
