Bea Hogg is shy, but she has a fiery core that she doesn't let many see. When the national dance competition Starwars comes to her school looking for talent, she wants to sign up. It's just her luck that her best friend Kat ditches her and agrees to enter with school super-witch Pearl Harris (and Bea's former best friend).
Bea is determined to fight back! But when the school hottie, Ollie Matthews, who also happens to be Pearl's boyfriend, decides to enter the competition with Bea to jive dance, she will have more than a fight on her hands.

Debut author Jenny McLachlan weaves a warm and hilarious story of friendship and dance starring the refreshing and plucky Bea Hogg.

About the Author:

Jenny McLachlan lives in England with her husband and daughters, and has taught English at the high school and college level. She is currently a curriculum leader at a high school and an Advanced Skills Teacher who works with children and teachers in schools throughout England. Flirty Dancing is her first novel.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 6–9—Bea Hogg leads a typical adolescent life. She yearns to embrace who she really is deep inside but lacks the courage to do so. Bea seems unable to take the lead on any part of her life. She meekly allows her so-called best friend to betray her and never even considers standing up for herself to the school bully. Things takes a turn when her grandmother arranges for her to be paired with the quietly handsome Ollie Matthews to perform a dance routine on national television. The preparation for the dance is the catalyst for Bea's coming into her own: she finds her voice to combat the bully and predictably wins the love of Ollie. The characters are somewhat two-dimensional: the mean-girl bully, the disloyal best friend, the shy but handsome dance partner, and Bea's irreverent grandmother. The plot is a little slow and predictable, with an obvious ending: the ugly duckling turns into a swan. Further, the protagonist isn't very empowered, and her good fortune seems accidental. VERDICT The plot-driven story is entertaining but lacks real substance.—Patricia Feriano, Montgomery County Public Schools, MD
