Fiction: Debut
Imagine the Red Shoes with a dose of Black Swan mixed with Dancing with the Stars, and you have FLOORPLAY. 
Melinda, a too-curvy bunhead, is rejected by the black n’ white ballet world and, in her desperation to dance, throws herself into the gladiator pit of international Latin competition. Now she must face her body issues and learn to flaunt her hips and bust that she unsuccessfully tried to hide in the ballet world. She dyes her hair, tans her skin, and even changes her name to have the right look—but when Dmitri, a Latin champion, pushes her too far in a #metoo moment, Melinda must decide how much of herself she’s willing to lose in order to win. 
From the amazingly talented author, Sharon Savoy!
