Product Details


“A stunning love letter to ballet and San Francisco, Jennifer Longo’s (Six Feet Over It) quirky sophomore novel, Up to This Pointe, is the perfect meld of adorable and heart-wrenching.”
Shelf Awareness starred review

“The book is…savvy and detailed about the Antarctic and life on the ice, with McMurdo’s combination of industrial site and summer camp vividly conveyed… Fans of McCaughrean’s The White Darkness will definitely want a look; even determinedly frost-free readers, though, will sympathize with Harper’s upheaval at failing to become one of the chosen few.” Bulletin starred review

“A moving love letter to dance, dreams, and San Francisco, and a look at how embracing personal passion leads to fulfillment (even if it wasn’t part of the plan).” Kirkus Reviews
“An adventure story with lots of heart.” Booklist
“Longo (Six Feet Over It) makes it easy to commiserate with Harper as she tries to move past disappointment and envision a new path forward.” Publishers Weekly
