Gr 6-9-Readers may be surprised by the powerful literary mix that they encounter in this short-story collection. In interrelated selections, individual students prepare for their eighth-grade dance, and every story shifts imperceptibly through a broad spectrum of teen issues. Rachel's religious father is abusive and volatile; Becca is the victim of date rape. Cub wraps himself in the scent of his father's old shirt hoping to protect himself from "The Question"-a private doubt about his sexuality that is taunting and terrifying him. The title story is equally fulfilling with a more traditional romantic flavor. The various moods are caught with immediacy and intimacy, and the resolutions occur in precious little time. This collection will spark conversation in contemporary literature discussions, will quietly unsettle readers, and will elevate the quality of short-story collections.-Alison Follos, North Country School, Lake Placid, NY Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.

"Powerful."--School Library Journal "This satisfying book will grow on the reader. So mix the punch and start the glitter ball revolving--the Stardust Dance is about to begin." --VOYA (5Q, highest rating)
