Get to know American Girl's 2017 Girl of the Year, Gabriela, in this first book in her series! Gabby loves expressing herself--especially in the dance studio--but lately, poetry is becoming her art form of choice, and for good reason: Gabby struggles with stuttering, and spoken word poetry helps her speech flow more freely. Still, compared to how confident she feels on the dance floor, speaking up can be scary. When the city threatens to close her beloved community arts center, Gabby is determined to find a way to help. Can she harness the power of her words and rally her community to save Liberty Arts?

      This book was about Gabriel finding a way to open back up liberty. She is a dancer and her mom is the founder of the book. I absolutely loved it because I dance as well

        What I really love about this book is that a girl (Gabriela) tries her best to do good on what she really loves doing, but in this book she does have a stuttering problem. Gabby really likes expressing her self by dancing but poetry is making Gabby feel more freely because of her stuttering problem.
