Love Double Dutch! by Doreen Spicer-Dannelly
From the creator of the popular Disney Channel original movie Jump In! comes a novel perfect for fans of stories about sports, summer, and friendship.
"Keep this on the shelf next to other fierce sports novels, like Victoria Jamieson's Roller Girl." --Booklist
Brooklyn middle schooler MaKayla can only think about one thing--taking her double Dutch team all the way to the National Jump-off at Madison Square Garden. That is, until her mother breaks the news. Kayla has to spend the summer at her aunt's house in North Carolina while her parents work out their problems . . . or decide to call it quits.
Kayla does not feel at home in the South, and she certainly doesn't get along with her snooty cousin Sally. It looks like her Jump-off dreams are over.
Hold the phone! Turns out, double Dutch is huge in the South. She and Sally just need to find two more kids for a team. And a routine. And the confidence to stand up to the double Dutch divas who used to be Sally's BFFs. Time to show those Southern belles some Brooklyn attitude!
