High kicks and low blows all round in this fantastic story about life at stage school, by the author of Ballet Shoes - perfect for young fans of TV shows like The Next Step and Stage School It's 1957 and Rachel and Hilary are sent to live with their ambitious aunt who runs a stage school, training a troupe of dancing girls. It's heaven for Hilary who loves to perform, but quite the opposite for quiet Rachel. The last thing Rachel wants is to become one of her aunt's Little Wonders - particularly if it means behaving like their irritating show-off of a cousin . . .

A mischievous, fun and moving story about young performers, from the acclaimed author of the classic Ballet Shoes.
