"Summer Dance"

"Summer Dance" by Lynn Swanson

 Author Lynn Swanson portrays the hard-won accomplishments of tween and teenage girls as they cope with life-changing artistic and social events at a dance camp in “Summer Dance” (ISBN 1463742169). Set in the northern Michigan woods, the novel tells the story of 13-year-old Sara, who has been accepted into an exclusive dance program for the summer, and how the challenges of boys, dance and friends help her realize what she wants in life and in a future dance career.

Mary Cary Crawford, in a ForeWord Clarion review, says about the book and Swanson, “She lets readers fully experience the challenges of a fine arts camp with its rigorous schedule and highly competitive atmosphere…Most importantly, though, she shows how her characters all grow and mature in ways they don’t expect. Watching Sara and the others develop not only as dancers, but also as leaders and supportive friends is the best aspect of this book.”

“Summer Dance” contains a glossary of dance terms and a study guide. It is filled with dance music readily available on the market to enhance readers’ experience of the story, such as “Swan Lake,” “Les Patineurs,” “Les Sylphides,” “Nutcracker” and Kronos Quartet’s “Pieces of Africa.”

About the Author: Swanson holds a bachelor of fine arts degree in dance from the University of Michigan and a Master of Arts degree in creative writing from Michigan State University. She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
