Double Dutch

by Ganelle Gaddy Sutton


Book Details

"Mind on the rhythm. Wind in her hair. Ropes swinging high, gracing the air."

Ganelle has never played Double Dutch a day in her life. She has only watched the high school girls jump, and they seemed to do it effortlessly. But in order to get her biggest bullies off of her back, she has no other choice but to learn how to jump and take them up on their challenge. This just might be the most dramatic Double Dutch competition "The Avenues" has ever seen!
