Peril en Pointe


Milly yearns to dance like her ballerina mum. But a silly mistake during the biggest competition of her life costs Milly her dreams. An unexpected invitation takes Milly to a mysterious ballet school, but Swan House isn’t just a school for ballet dancers. It’s a school for spies. When Milly learns that her mum and new friends are in terrible peril, she must find ‘the grace of a swan and the heart of a lion’ to save them.
