I am a Dancer was such a good book!! It really describes what you have to do to be a pro dancer. I am a dancer myself. I don't do pointe, but I want to even though I'm not that great at ballet. This book told me what I will have to do to become a pro. The photography in this book was amazing! I loved this book and I think that others that love dance will love this book,too!!
This book is about thirteen year old Eva who dances at the School of American Ballet. She tells about her life as a ballet dancer, but I think that it should have more information rather than picures. But besides that it is a great book for Ballet enthusiasts!
