Ellie Brown is so excited to be returning to The Royal Ballet Lower School for her second term. She can't wait until classes start--she and her fellow classmates are finally learning to dance on pointe! But a new girl, Isabelle Armand, throws everyone off. Isabelle is from France and believes that the French way is the only way--when it comes to clothing, food...and especially ballet. Isabelle is a flawless dancer, but she's terribly unfriendly. How can Ellie and her friends warm to Isabelle when she keeps giving everyone the cold shoulder?
