Peggy in the Middle

Plot

Peggy Marshall’s mother wanted her to be a famous ballerina, just as she had been, and  Peggy’s father was keen to make her a top athlete, like himself. This would have been difficult enough for Peggy but her parents had separated so she lived most of the week with her mother, spending the weekends with her dad—until an accident which left her uninjured, but under observation.
