Ballerina Weather Girl (Not-So-Ordinary Girl)

Shawn K. Stout

Best price for this book: $ 4.68

Fiona Finkelstein was born to be a ballerina—if she can get over her stage fright, that is. The first in the feisty and endearing Not-So-Ordinary Girl trilogy.

More than catching fireflies, more than eating triple–hot fudge sundaes, and even more than waking up on the first day of summer vacation, Fiona Finkelstein wants to become a ballerina. There’s just one problem: In her last recital, she starred as the unforgettable Fiona VOMITstein—her “performance” went all over the stage, and all over Benevolence Castles’s cancan costume.

Can Fiona overcome her fears and blossom as a big-time ballerina in The Nutcracker, even in a snowstorm? Or will she be the only person in her family to have the flat-out worst case of stage fright ever?

Originally published as Fiona Finkelstein, Big-Time Ballerina!!.
