Fiona Finkelstein was born to be a ballerina--if she can get over her stage fright, that is. The first in the feisty and endearing Not-So-Ordinary Girl trilogy. More than catching fireflies, more than eating triple-hot fudge sundaes, and even more than waking up on the first day of summer vacation, Fiona Finkelstein wants to become a ballerina. There's just one problem: In her last recital, she starred as the unforgettable Fiona VOMITstein--her "performance" went all over the stage, and all over Benevolence Castles's cancan costume. Can Fiona overcome her fears and blossom as a big-time ballerina in The Nutcracker, even in a snowstorm? Or will she be the only person in her family to have the flat-out worst case of stage fright ever? Originally published as Fiona Finkelstein, Big-Time Ballerina .
