Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 09/15/2016 High-energy Lola Levine is back in a story that pits her against a dancer as passionate and opinionated about ballet as Lola is about soccer. Lola’s tendency to speak without a filter rubs new girl Bella Benitez the wrong way, and their relationship is immediately antagonistic. A classroom mishap results in a visit to the principal’s office, where their mothers declare that the two girls might benefit from walking in each other’s shoes—or cleats. So Bella tries soccer, and Lola tries ballet, and the end result is eye-opening for both girls. A secondary story line involving Spirit Week allows the girls a chance to celebrate where their interests intersect while highlighting their own unique tastes. Diary entries bookend the story, and grayscale illustrations make this an attractive choice for early chapter-book fans. Readers already familiar with Lola will be happy for a return visit, while newcomers—like Bella—will learn to appreciate her vim and charm. - Copyright 2016 Booklist.
