Suzanne Nelson delivers another sweet, foodie tween romance for our WISH line, this time with ice cream, ballet, friends, and happily-ever-after.
Malie's mom manages an ice cream parlor, but Malie's real love is ballet. She dreams of landing the lead in an upcoming production of Cinderella
and dancing onstage while her boyfriend, Ethan, cheers from the audience. But Malie's mom is less than supportive.Then cute new boy Alonzo arrives from Italy. His
true love is ice cream -- gelato, to be exact. Alonzo offers a Malie a deal: If she lets him help out at the parlor, she can take dance lessons from his mom, a famed ballerina. As Malie pirouettes between the parlor and the ballet studio, things start to spin out of control. Does she have feelings for Alonzo? What about Ethan? And if she doesn't get a role in Cinderella
, can she find her happily ever after?
