Julian wants nothing more than to make the high school football team. His throwing arm is great and his dad is a close personal friend of the coach. The only thing holding him back is a little thing called total lack of coordination.
When the coach sends him off to DANCE school of all things for the summer to work on his faulty footwork, however, he thinks life can’t get any worse, especially when his own sister turns out to be his volunteer dance instructor.
But then he gets teamed up with Nia, and suddenly being off balance doesn’t seem so bad. Maybe falling is actually exactly what he needs.

“So, um…” Her dark brown eyes lifted to mine. “You want to get started?”
Yes. Because that meant I’d get to put my hands on her. For some reason, I totally forgot that I was actually supposed to dance, and that I sucked at dancing, and the most humiliating thing I could do was dance in front of someone else. I was too focused on the fact that I’d get to touch this cute, little thing. Trying not to sound too eager about it, I answered, “Sure,” and then tossed in a loose shrug for effect. “That’s why we’re here, right?”
“Right.” Her cheeks darkened into the cutest blush, and she tucked that single beaded weave of hair behind one ear. “So, uh, I guess we need to start by facing each other.”
“Okay.” As she looked down at my phone and went back to the beginning of the video, I stepped in close. “Like this?”
Nia looked up. “Oh,” she breathed out in surprise. “I...” She quickly lowered her face and studied my phone before saying, “Yeah. Uh, this seems right.”
