Diana juggles learning the new ballet routines as well as working part time and being in the school play. Diana is a fun, loving, and a bold character in this book. My favorite part of the book was when Diana was up on the stage pretending to be her friend Amelia and dancing in the Nutcracker premiere. She was dressed in full makeup and wearing a doll costume as her roll as a windup toy in the Nutcracker. During her performance, she made a few mistakes getting on the stage that made her performance go terribly wrong. Her secret bathroom was locked, her jacket fell from the ceiling during the performance, and she was hiding inside a musical box.
