A performing arts high school senior, Soledad lives to dance. She plans to spend the summer teaching dance and saving up some money before she heads out to audition for dance companies. This plan is delayed when she falls for a musician who convinces her to spend the summer performing with a competitive drum and bugle corps. When Soledad catches the attention of a handsome soccer player who pursues her, she finds herself torn between her boyfriend and the intriguing athlete.
This is a teen novel, and will likely have little crossover appeal for adults. While the love story is rather twisted and codependent, it features a triangle like the ever-popular Twilight or Hunger Games series. It may appeal most to those who enjoy dance, or who participate in in competitive show bands or traveling teams. You can find When the Stars Go Blue in our Browsing Teen collection.
