VBT# Tutus and Cowboys - Casey Peeler (Parts 1 and 2)
Review: Tutus and Cowboy Boots - Part #1 - Casey Peeler - December 2015
Dancing is a major part of Cadence Lewis's life , all she can remember is being up on stage dancing her little heart out and her dreams have not been to attend college but to join a dancing company and go on tour with them. Growing up in New York, that was a reality as she attended a strong dance studio with connections . However, her life is about to turn completely upside down as her father is moving out and has a new girlfriend whom Cadence nicknames Barbie and Bimbo. Cadence's mother was from a small country town ironically called Delight in North Carolina. Now Cadence must not only adjust to life in a small town but also life on a farm and with a farm comes hard work as her mother and grandmother put her to work with their part-time farmhand Barrick. This starts out fun as the two of them play pranks on each other, and we see a possible romance blossoming . However, is Cadence ready to give up the attitude and make a go of the smalltown or is she still too big for her britches when it comes to life in Delight. As Cadence is faced with having to make new friends, new decisions and realise that even in a smalltown - there are opportunites for her to grow. Part #1 of Tutus and Cowboy Boots by Casey Peeler was the basis of the story and getting to know Cadence and Barrick and the characters involved with the story. Part #1 finishes on a cliffhanger - involving her trip home to New York to see her father.
