Instructions for Dancing

by Nicola Yoon is about a high school senior, Evie Thomas, who has given up on love. Since she caught her father having an affair, Evie has been having doomed visions of how relationships will end: she sees a couple together and somehow knows instantly how their love will fail. When she finds a dance studio run by an older couple, she’s intrigued and motivated to begin practicing, especially when she starts dancing with the couple’s grandson, Xavier. But, as she and Xavier spend more and more time together both on the dance floor and off, Evie has to reckon with what falling in love, and taking risks, really means to her. (Young Adults)
