When the Stars Go Blue

Ferrer, Caridad

Soledad is an 18-year-old Cuban-American dancer from Miami making plans to go to NYC and audition for ballet companies when she's presented with the opportunity to go pro with a drum and bugle corps. (Right? But it sounds like a really cool thing, and a great way to spend the summer after graduating from high school, not to mention with the hottie who suggested her for the gig.)

Trouble is, the hottie is immature, jealous, controlling and destructive, and that this is more of a teen romance than dancer coming-of-age scenario, when I would have preferred the latter.
