When Meg's summer ballet program is canceled and her ballet teacher suggests she attend Camp Dance to learn new dance styles, Meg is devastated. Worse still, her teacher thinks she lacks stage presence and needs to connect more with her audience. At camp, Meg struggles to learn contemporary dance. A girl named Logan, who is jealous of Meg's ballet technique and her friendship with Nio, a cute contemporary dancer, makes Meg's life even more difficult. When Meg, Nio and Logan have to work together to create a piece for the final show, arguments threaten to ruin their dance. Unless they are able to overcome their differences, Meg's time at Camp Dance will have been a disaster from start to finish.

Review by Kennedy, a teen at North County Library:
"Off Pointe by Leanne Lieberman is a book about a dancer named Meg who is forced to leave her comfort zone at a summer camp after her summer ballet program is cancelled. At Camp Dance, Meg is exposed to other dance styles including contemporary, jazz, and hip-hop. Not only is she forced to get comfortable with these other dance styles, but she also must collaborate with another camper, Logan, whom she does not get along with. Meg, Logan, and a boy named Nio must work together to create a dance for the final camp show and must overcome their differences to do so. This story shows the way a girl handles the obstacles she’s faced with and would be a relatable read for young teens who are Meg’s age."
