Dancing With the Truth

In this story Jake LoSanto searches for the courage to be himself.

Jake LoSanto is making his professional ballet debut with the Imperial Dance Company in New York City. This is an exceptional accomplishment for a ten-year-old boy, but he tells no one outside his family as he fears that he will be bullied for his ballet dancing.

Jake finds that hiding the truth leads him to other lies that turn him into a person he doesn’t like. In protecting himself from the possibility of bullying, he loses who he really is and finds he has the ability to hurt others.

Dancing with the Truth is the sequel to Nobody’s Purr-fect (Especially Not Georgie). The reader will connect again with Jake, Todd, Dad, Grandma, and Grandpa LoSanto, as well as their beloved and unique cat, Georgie. What does Jake learn from his pet? Is there anything that is more important than protecting ourselves from the actions of others? Who should make the decisions about how we live our lives? What can we learn from Jake’s experience?

Messages from the Book

Why don’t I tell the truth? Why am I paralyzed by fear?
~ Dancing with the Truth
It seems that hiding the truth about dancing led me to other lies. The problem is hiding the truth is becoming a habit for me. I see now that I’m not brave enough to be myself.

I had read LaCarrubba’s book Nobody’s Purr-fect (Especially Not Georgie). So, I was delighted to read what life lessons she would be teaching children in it’s sequel Dancing with the Truth!

Having put a key word in the title, she did an exemplary job on tackling the truth using Georgie and life lessons. You will have to read to find out what other lessons could be learned.

Illustrations were colorful plus helpful in understanding context and emotions.

I highly recommend reading this book. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and teachers should enjoy this book. They can discuss with kids the importance of telling the truth. I can’t wait to read the next one!
