Out of Reach by Kate William, 151 pages
All Jade Wu wants is to be as all-American as the other girls in Sweet Valley. But her traditional Chinese father won't let her date or do any of the things other teenage girls do, so Jade's sure she'll never fit in. Jade is a talented dancer, and when she wins the solo part in a dance show, she takes the role despite her father's objections. Soon she's happier than she dreamed she could be, especially when the show brings her together with handsome David Prentiss. Jade begins to confide everything in David-until it suddenly looks as if he's betrayed her deepest secret about her family. Can Jade really find happiness in her two world, or was her father right all along?
