An entertaining look at the excitement, grace, glamour and underbelly of the world of ballet - written by someone who seems to know that world intimately. I learned alot of backstage info I had no idea was part of the world of ballet. Reads like a movie - and very enjoyable.

A perfect description of the hard reality behind the world of ballet. One says every sport is hard, but art seems even harder, competition between dancers is without mercy. Mr Dando describes this very well. The ongoing 'battle' between young dancers and especially Temple and Allison is perfectly put on paper. I was not familiar with the world of ballet, but this novel opened my eyes, it is so well written that the reader is immediately into the story and feels for one of the two main characters; who both have their reasons to dance. The main issue is the very need Allison and Temple feel to dance, to be a star. Are all means allowed to obtain this goal ? This novel is the answer.
