Lila and Austin have known each other since she befriended his younger brother when she was a toddler. In fact, since her parents moved from her hometown, Lila's lived with Austin's family. The two are friends, though more of the teasing, taunting breed than the BFF variety.

But all it takes is one moment for everything to change...

For Austin, that moment comes when Lila performs a rumba in the school's auditorium to qualify for the state dance competition, the young woman on stage so far-removed from the little girl in his memories.

For Lila, the moment is a reflected image of Austin preparing for prom, the guy standing in front of his mirror hardly resembling the child that spent so much of his youth pestering her.

Will they find a way to admit to themselves and their families that their feelings are deeper than friendship? And can Lila focus on this building relationship - and deal with her unstable ex - and still win the dance contest?

Thomas Jefferson High School never had a better dance team than Lila and Trent. Best friends since forever, they were like one well oiled machine. Dance is the reason Lila stayed in Colorado when her parents moved to Arizona. She was staying with family friends until she graduated from high school. Lila had no way of knowing her sophomore year was going to be one of change. Question is, can she keep up with the changes? This book involves several lessons many women need to learn. It's also a well written love story. The characters are relate-able and fun. The energy is palpable. I could feel Lila's determination and love of dance. Ms. Smith gives us a front row seat to events pretty common in the high school world. You'll enjoy being right there cheering Lila and Trent on as they dance. The realization of heartbreak and relationship problems are made clear in this one. Grab your copy and let me know what you think. I didn't find any issues. I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because I think the life lessons are important ones. ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~
