"All's fair in love and war and ballet." Fifteen-year-old Erik Shaw loves dancing. He doesn't care that he's the only boy in his ballet class or about the remarks people make. Coping with these is as natural to him as the turned-out fish-feet stance from which he gets his nickname. But now Erik wants to audition for the Royal Ballet School, which means making some tough decisions - such as giving up the Falcons football team and letting down old friends like Richard. This is further complicated by Erik's growing feelings for Richard's twin sister, Ruth, a fellow ballet dancer. Then there's Erik's dad who has his own ambitions for his son and being a ballet dancer isn't one of them. Has Erik got the strength of will as well as the talent to achieve his goal?
