Kylie Jean: Dancing Queen by Marci Peschke
(Some spoilers below)
It's not unusual for me to get excited about books, particularly books that I didn't know were being published. But the look of pure joy on my face when I saw that there was a new Kylie Jean book is a look that I rarely get. I have such a strong affection for this little girl and her pink and sparkles and dreams of being a queen. Kylie Jean, as usual, demonstrates a lot of positive character traits in her story: she's disappointed but learns to live with it, she doesn't get the part she wants but she realizes that she made a commitment and sticks with it, and she wants to congratulate the person who did get the part she wanted. She has a great relationship with her family and focuses on how to solve problems. And, as an extra bonus, at the end of the book (after the fun reflective and extension exercises for readers), there was a page advertising three more new Kylie Jean books. They're absolutely going on my To Read List.
I read a review copy from NetGalley courtesy of Capstone.
