Dancers and Divas by Kathy Petrakis Blog Tour

Does passion and desire guarantee success? Can friends really be trusted? Can true love be found beneath lust and deceit?

These are questions street dancer Elena Martinez faces as she struggles to compete against the most talented students at New York's top Performing Arts High School. Along with her best friend, the carefree and mischievous Sebastien Duval, they are determined to make center stage.

But the singing diva Letitia has other plans. Beautiful, talented and popular, her desire for revenge could ruin everything for Elena and Sebastien. Now, they must fight against prejudice, treachery and deceit as Letitia sets out to destroy Elena's friendships, her romance, her dignity and her dreams. Can Elena win the battle for true love, happiness and success?

Can secrets stay hidden forever? Can people really change? Are some mistakes unforgivable? 

As Elena and Sebastian embark on a fresh start, will Letitia keep his secret, or will she use it to destroy them? 
As Veronika falls in love, Frankie is out of rehab and trying to make amends, but will it last for either of them? 
Meanwhile, as Anya is torn between loyalty to her Nana and love for Darius, could Darius fall for the new temptress, Rosa? With her stunning looks, her powerful, sensual dancing and her desire to seduce, she has everyone nervous but what secret is she hiding? 
Continue the roller-coaster journey with your favorite characters as they try to survive junior year at the country's top performing arts school. 

When Elena first meets Sebastian "Seb", they are young and she is not sure she wants to be his friend.  Although walking to dance class with him doesn't seem to be so bad.  Two years later Seb is her best friend and with her to begin their first day at Montacrue Performing Arts School  It doesn't take long to make friends and an enemy as she finds herself constantly competing with a diva.  

The first four years are filled with promise, disappointment, pain, happiness, and unexpected turns that Elena and Sebastian never saw coming.  This reminded me a bit of Fame, but definitly with a more current vibe to it.  I thought Sebastian was delightful, he is soft to Elena who is a tough cookie.  I was surprised several times and thoroughly enjoyed this multi performance novel.
