Suzanne Nelson worked for eight years as a children's book editor in New York City before becoming a full-time author. Her books include Cake Pop Crush, Heart and Salsa, The Sound of Munich, The Ghoul Next Door, You're Bacon Me Crazy, and Serendipity's Footsteps.
Then cute new boy Alonzo arrives from Italy. His true love is ice cream -- gelato, to be exact. Alonzo offers a Malie a deal: If she lets him help out at the parlor, she can take dance lessons from his mom, a famed ballerina.
As Malie pirouettes between the parlor and the ballet studio, things start to spin out of control. Does she have feelings for Alonzo? What about Ethan? And if she doesn't get a role in Cinderella, can she find her happily ever after?
