When a friend in need turns up at the rink, however, Cara drops everything to lend a helping hand. Find out what Cara learns.

In addition to her highly successful professional skating career, Yamaguchi also founded the Always Dream Foundation and is a New York Times best-selling author. Both factor heavily in Yamaguchi’s efforts to promote early childhood literacy.
