“It’s the seventh grade Winterwonderland Dance at Westwood Junior High and thus far, 12-year-old Samira has come up short with the boys, as always.” All this stylish, yet bashful tween wants this holiday season is one slow dance. Just one. And hopefully, with the boy of her dreams. Carter Ward. But he doesn’t even know she exists! Or does he? With the help of her beloved, and sometimes annoying best friend, Nakia, Samira may get more than just a dance for Christmas.
Come follow Samira in this short story, “A Dance in December” to find out what goes down at this seventh grade shindig. Will Samira get the one thing she wants for Christmas? A slow dance with her crush, Carter? Or will she continue to be a wilting wallflower?
