Description

Brianna and Jamaica both want to be the butterfly queen in their spring dance performance. Instead they are chosen to be flowers while Brianna’s older sister, Nikki, is chosen for the lead. But just when Nikki seems to be the lucky one, she gets the flu and can’t dance her part. Will Brianna get a chance now? Once again Juanita Havill and Anne Sibley O’Brien portray a familiar scene in the life of a child with grace, gentleness, and a satisfying conclusion.
