You’ve been told as long as you can remember, you can be anything you want to be if you just work hard enough.  Well, what happens when you have all the drive and determination to live out your dream, but you still fail?


Harper and her best friend, Kate, have a plan, “The Plan!”  They are going to graduate early, audition for the San Francisco Ballet, and live out their dream of being professional ballerinas together.  When “The Plan” goes south (literally), Harper finds herself as a research assistant in Antarctica. While in Antarctica, Harper has to find out who she is and where she’s going now that “The Plan” isn’t an option. (Oklahoma High School Sequoyah Award, 2018)
