High-energy Lola Levine is back in a story that pits her against a dancer as passionate and opinionated about ballet as Lola is about soccer. Lola's tendency to speak without a filter rubs new girl Bella Benitez the wrong way, and their relationship is immediately antagonistic. A classroom mishap results in a visit to the principal's office, where their mothers declare that the two girls might benefit from walking in each other's shoes cleats. So Bella tries soccer, and Lola tries ballet, and the end result is eye-opening for both girls. A secondary story line involving Spirit Week allows the girls a chance to celebrate where their interests intersect while highlighting their own unique tastes. Diary entries bookend the story, and grayscale illustrations make this an attractive choice for early chapter-book fans. Readers already familiar with Lola will be happy for a return visit, while newcomers ke Bella ll learn to appreciate her vim and charm.

When new classmate Bella, a ballet dancer, walks into Lola's class at Northland Elementary, all Lola can see is pink everywhere--pink ribbons, a pink sweatshirt, and pink tennis shoes. Yuck! Pink is Lola's least favorite color. Plus, Ballet isn't nearly as hard as soccer, is it?

Lola and Bella can't seem to stop squabbling. But when a mishap during class lands them in Principal Blot's office, Lola's mom comes up with a scheme--a ballet scheme--that just might make these classroom rivals realize that ballerinas and soccer players have more in common than they ever thought possible.

But is it too late for Lola to make a new friend?
