Emma Freedman. You might recall her as the bubbly weather presenter, with a contagiously happy personality, from the Today morning television show. Or recognise her from her amazing dance skills that saw her win the 2015 series of Dancing with the Stars.



Now, you can add successful children's author to her list of talents.

Her new book, aimed at children 8 and up, Turning Pointes, tells the story of a young ballet dancer called April, who is starting to question where her passion truly lies.

After practising classical ballet for almost ten years, April's passion seems to be wavering.
She has also just started high school, has new friends, is dealing with 'mean girls' and has been to her first high school party. Things are changing rapidly. So when an opportunity to dip her toes into a different dance-style presents itself, she leaps at the chance.

The story covers common issues that most 13 year-old girls face. Like the huge change from primary school to high school; confronting bullies, dealing with parental pressure, and discovering boys.

Emma Freedman's bubbly personality literally bursts from the pages, and the story is told in a vocabulary that will resonate well with her age appropriate readers.

If you are looking for a book to motivate your daughter to read, this is it! It would make a great gift to give to a girl starting high school.
