Veda loves to dance. She is determined to be the very best bharatanatyam dancer in all of India. To be the best means she can show her family she can determine her own destiny and choose a life for herself. A horrific accident shortly after Veda wins the national dance competition leaves her with only one leg. Dancing is her only dream. Can she still dance with only one leg? Told in lyrical free verse, A Time to Dance is a story of family, culture, passion and the determination to follow your dreams, even if the path to get there becomes harder than you ever imagined. (Oklahoma Sequoyah Award, 2017)
