This is the side of the ice show you've never seen. When this Midwestern girl arrives at her first ice show practice in a make-shift rink in Buenos Aries, she quickly dispels any illusions about ice show glamour. From the women with the dancers' bodies and the bikers' mouths, to the couples whose most intimate secrets become official ice show business, to the street-ready show makeup, Amy sees that show life is a wild ride. Through a series of vignettes, Amy takes the reader on side trips during days off into every non-tourist part of South America she can find. On show days, she takes the reader backstage with all the drama in the ice show-the practical jokes, the falls, and the "cat fights." During her 8-month tour with Disney on Ice, Amy learns how to perform under the lights and maneuver through backstage show life, but learns even more about herself in this coming of age travel story that will make you fall in love with South America and the ice show.
