    Know this is a book for me!! Couln't there be more?

    I can't believe that I am the first person to write a review about this book! There really are not a lot of novels based on ballet, just books teaching you steps which I dont need because I have taken dance since first grade and I'm in 8th and still taking it..so..yeah..That though is not the point, what I'm trying to say is that for ballet lovers this book is a true treasure because theres just not enough novels about young ballerinas. I admit I have not read the whole book, just the free sample, but I am going to buy it now and read it and I bet you anything I will write back how great it was and thats why you should try it too!

    Wonderful book about the ballet world.

    The e-book formatting was a little messed up, but it didn't detract from an amazing story. Kudos to Miss Landis for showing young dancers a glimpse of the life.
