*Yo-yo While Supplies Last!!*

Cory's dance crew is getting ready for their last competition before they graduate eighth grade and go their separate ways to high schools all over NYC. As their crew captain gets increasingly intense about nailing the routine, Cory's parents ground him for not taking his grades seriously! He can’t practice and he’s stuck with a new tutor, who he dismisses as a boring nerd. Then he catches her practicing cool yo-yo tricks and now Cory wants to learn the art of yo-yo. But as his friendship with Sunna grows, he ends up missing practice and bailing on his crew — and they are not happy about it. With mounting pressure coming from all sides, how can Cory balance the expectations of his parents, school, dance, and his new friend? Your young readers will be caught up in Cory’s struggle to balance everyone’s expectations — including his own!
