    Beautiful

    Told in free verse, this book takes the character Sara from the shocking win of a scholarship to dance in a big city ballet, to being thrust into dealing with so many things she was unsure about. She wants to be excited about dance, but she has found writing to be very enjoyable as well and so she feels torn. But this country girl is pushed into the city and her innocent ways are tested. This is a great book for those who want to go into the arts, as well as for those of us who have danced ballet for years.

    Different

    Ballet and creative writing. This one was different than what I expected. Moments where I was like, wait, girl what you doing? Near the end it was like something was missing or left out. Or it could be because I don't read much verse novels. I don't know. The writing was good.

    A coming-of-age tale set against the backdrop of the competitive dance world

    "Kehoe can turn an evocative phrase, like the way she describes the "encrusted hairspray" of the dancer, or the minimalist way in which she describes a dancer's eating disorder..." from The Huffington Post

    Not the best book-Still good

    I read this book with my friends and we all thought it was a little more focusing on Rem and Sarah's relationship then the Audition which is the title of the novel. I thought that the author could of kept out Rem smoking in the book and I don't like his personality. He seems like he only cares about him and likes to look @ himself in the mirror too much. I honestly dislike him and hope when Kehoe writes more book about ballet KEEP REMINGTON OUT!!
