A poignant, coming of age story about a Cuban-American girl trying to figure out where she belongs—both in her ballet-loving family and the wider world.

It's a good thing Sofía Acosta loves dreaming up costumes, because otherwise she's a ballet disaster—unlike her parents, who danced under prima ballerina Alicia Alonso before immigrating to the New York suburbs. Luckily, when the Acostas host their dancer friends from Cuba for a special performance with the American Ballet Theatre, Sofía learns there's more than dance holding her family together.

Then Sofía finds out about the dancers' secret plans to defect to the United States, and makes a serious mistake—she confides in her best friend, only to discover that Tricia doesn't want "outsiders" moving to their community. Sofía doesn't want to make a scene, but if she doesn't speak up, how will she figure out if the other neighbors in her suburban town think similarly of immigrant families and if her family really belongs?
