    1. Marisol dreams of being a dancer and now that she's won a scholarship to the Manhattan Ballet School, it seems as if her dream is coming true. The only problem iswho will take her to the school which is far away and accessible only by multiple trains.

    2. A good simple read. Nice book to promote young readers to have dream, to keep in touch with your culture and the dangers of drugs. It kind of felt like the book didn't do well in mixing cultures though and the ending didn't really give me the nice happy feeling of, "She'll get through anything" since things just seemed to resolve itself either by chance or by her family member helping her.All and all a great read.
