Brimming with dry humour and a sprinkling of romance, this is the second sparkling novel by M J Moon.

Meet dance mad Mabel Storm, the girl who no boy would ever dance with in a million years – no make that a zillion years!

But trouble strikes when her hapless parents and owners of Twinkle Toes dance school park her off to crochet obsessed Aunt Mathilda’s place at half-term. Mabel´s chances of finding a boy sink to minus zero…or do they?

Mabel´s luck is about to change…

It turns out that there´s more to batty aunt Mathilda than meets the eye when she gives Mabel a pair of the rarest dance shoes on earth. Things get weirder when a mysterious dancer known only as the Silver Shadow arrives on the scene.

Suddenly, Mabel is transformed from dancing disaster into a dancing diva as the pair wow audiences and judges with their slick moves.

But who is the Silver Shadow and why is he so desperate to dance with Mabel…?
