How do you break free from your destiny? Music has been part of Imogene’s life as long as she can remember – as a child prodigy playing in a famous trio with her father and grandfather, the piano is her salvation in many ways. But it is her last year in boarding school and there are so many decisions to make about the future. When another talent arrives at school, a NHL-bound hockey star, Imogene discovers an unexpected friend to help navigate her next steps.
Skating Over Thin Ice by Jean Mills’ beautiful language transports the reader to snowy nights on the lake and music-filled concert halls. Middle grades and YA readers alike will enjoy this not-so-typical coming of age story about talent, passion, and obligation.
