'They've got the world at their feet, but have they got what it takes? Sammy Goldstein is the kind of guy who's every girl's best friend but finds the other boys at the Academy much more difficult to talk to. He becomes the third member of Kat and tara's pas de trois and it's a role that suits him perfectly. the only son in a conservative Jewish family, it's always been expected that Sammy will follow in his father's footsteps and go into medicine. Sammy broke his father's heart when he decided he wanted to be a dancer instead. As a result, Sammy now has to juggle the pressures of his faith and his family against those of the Academy. When Sammy arrives at the Academy he's considered a total outcast until Kat rescues him and makes him cool. Well, as cool as Sammy can be in his own unique way. While Sammy may wish to be more like the other guys, he always stays true to himself. Sammy immediately develops a massive crush on the bitch of First Year, Abigail Armstrong. He couldn't have picked a more difficult person to fall for, but who knows? He just might be the one to turn her into a nice person. In the latter part of the series Sammy is assigned a new roommate and makes his first real guy friend at the Academy. Sammy never knew he could have so much in common with anyone - but is it more than friendship he feels? ' (Publication summary)
