Cassie loves to dance. She goes to ballet, tap and jazz classes. Jazz is her favourite. She dreams of becoming a famous dancer one day with lots of adoring fans. There's one problem though - she's terrified of dancing in front of people.
Her dance school has an open day coming up when the whole class will dance in front of their family and friends. Cassie's nervous - she wishes she could be as confident as Jake, who is the best dancer in the class.
The day of the performance comes and Cassie finds some special shoes that give her the confidence to dance in front of everyone. But where's Jake? Could he be nervous about dancing in front of an audience as well?
'If the Shoe Fits' is a delightful story dealing with issues of confidence, expectations and embarrassment, and will be enjoyed by both boys and girls.
