The book Summer’s Dream is about a girl called Summer and she has a twin sister called Skye. As well, she has two older sisters Cherry (who is Summers stepsister) and Honey. She also has two younger sisters: Skye and Coco. She loves dancing, especially ballet, and spending time with her friends. But also in the book – she doesn’t eat anything junk-food-wise and at the end, she gets her dream but loses so much weight she is very petite and skinny.

I loved reading Summer’s Dream because I love to do ballet and I can lose myself in the music just like she can do. As well, this book made me think about me being a ballerina when I’m older for maybe the Royal Ballet School like she auditioned for at the beginning.
