For the first time since they were five, the girls didn’t know how to be with one another. It was as if Winnie had said “I don’t want to be in the club anymore.” Threesomes are hard, everyone says, but since kindergarten, Vanessa, Winnie, Zoe—the End-of-the-Alphabet Club—have done everything together: sleepovers, trips to the library, games at recess. Yet now, as the world of ballet enters their lives, Winnie fears she will lose her two best friends. Simply told and illustrated with heartfelt, spirited drawings, this early chapter book explores the mysteries and joys of friendship.

The once-a-week ballet class the girls attend actually proceeds far more quickly than a real ballet class for the sake of advancing the plot, but girls who are enrolled in class themselves (or wish they were) will enjoy the authentic details of ballet positions and movements.
