    Amazing! Best book ever!!!!!

    This book is an inspiring story about a girl that is hoping to one day become a professional dancer. However, she starts to have weird simptoms of drowsiness and fainting. The doctor then tells her she has type 1 diabetes. Sure the book may be short but it is one of the best books I've ever read. I'm only 11 but this book is still inspiring. Definetely read!

    Wow

    This book was really good! I'm turning twelve in february and i really enjoyed this book. I have been on pointe for 4 years and take intense dance class 4 days a week 5 hours each day. On wednesday i have a short thirty minute break in between classes and picked up this book in the break room. I JUST COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!!! I loved it because it could relate to me, but not just in dance. While dancing, I got shin splits(my shins split). It was very dramatic, but i came to dance anyways and continued through classes they really hurt, still but i'm ok! I reccomond this book to any dancer, athlete, or diabetic!

    A Dancer for Christ

    Last Dance is a book for girls of the age of 12 to 16. I really enjoyed this book mainly because I am a dancer. However, it had some teen romance in it. It's not dirty romance there is just some kissing. In my opinion, however, I think kissing is a very sacred thing to do and it shouldn't be talked about like it happens all the time. Although, with the World we live in now that's pretty normal and I think it shouldn't be talked about quite so much! On the other hand I really enjoyed this book. Enjoy!

    A good book

    Last Dance by Lurlene McDaniel is a very cute book. It is about a young ballet student named Rachel Deering who hopes to one day become a professional ballet dancer. She is very talented and is set on auditioning for a summer scholarship for The School of American Ballet. Then she discovers she has type 1 diabetes and she's not sure if she can dance anymore. This book has everything, dance, romance, and it will make you cry. It has a touching story line that makes it impossible to put down, I read it in one day! I recommend that all dancers between the ages of 12 and 15 read this sweet book. It might not be good for younger children because of it's romantic aspects and it is definitely not for guys. I also recommend that people with diabetes read this book because it shows that you can over come anything and follow your dreams!

    Wonderful for all dancers!

    A great book filled with jealousy, drama, and it's wonderful for dancers who want to persue their dreams. I have been dancing for eight years, and this book touched my heart with sadness and joy. I HIGHLYY Recommend it!
