Freddie has figure skated since she was 8 years old - it's part of who she is. But she's never realised how talented she really is on the ice or how great she could become, not even talking to the other teenagers at the rink. She's happy enough, or so she thinks, with no idea where she's going in life - until the infamous Sandy McConnell arrives at her London-based rink. With his soft-spoken accent and magical skating, Sandy opens Freddie's eyes to her potential and soon enough their extraordinary chemistry on the ice gets them partnered, flying towards the Junior Championships.

The only problem is that, however pretty it looks, ice dance is a tough life to choose, and just as it hits the heights Freddie's world begins to fall apart. Can love - of all kinds - put it back together?

This is the first book about skating which I have found which looks (very) good. Thank you - I relate so much

I don't figure skate but this sounds a lot like dance so I can totally relate

Yah, because in other countries, there are lots of ice skating rinks, right?

@TripleAxel I must be very lucky then because, while it's not exactly cheap, it's not massively expensive for me either :/
