Dance Divas Showstoppers is the 5th book in the Dance Divas series by Sheryl Black. The book picks up where the last one left off, so reading them in order would be best. This series would appeal to younger dancers, but not many others. However, if they have a love of dancing, this is right up their alley.
Showstoppers follows six girls that form a dance team intent on winning a major competition in Las Vegas. Along the way they deal with the drama that stereotypically comes with a group of young girls. They also have personal problems that come up and must be dealt with. The question is can they pull together to not only win the competition, but more importantly beat their arch enemies City Feet?
While it was a cute, fun read, it is heavy on the ‘girl’ drama. And each of the girls fits into a stereotype, which leaves little room for character development. There is not much depth to the story or characters, but this series would certainly appeal to a young dancer who has stars in her eyes.
