Introducing 'Dancing in the dark' by Robyn Bavati

Dancing in the dark by Robyn Bavati

Ditty wants to dance. She needs to dance. But, as a child brought up in a very strict, traditional Jewish family, this will never happen. So, she begins dancing in secret – including taking ballet lessons. And, yes, this is where she belongs.

It is so hard to believe that it is set now. In Melbourne. Ditty’s world is so very different from ours. This is an amazing read. An insight into a different culture and tradition. And a story about a character with a strong will, and determination to succeed in her dreams.

You might like to try out some of these books. Some are tales of teens with talent. Others, tales of teens trying to fulfil their dreams.
