At the School of Ballet New York, the most prestigious ballet school in the country, aspiring ballerina Anna becomes friends with her talented roommate, Hilary, a French exchange student, Marie, a down-to-earth mid-westerner, Jen, and one of the cutest guys in school, Tyler. The competition is intense and Anna works hard to understand her famous teachers and navigate her ups and downs with her friends. Some of the dancers struggle with eating disorders, injuries, and depression. Everyone's goal is a contract with a professional ballet company, and as graduation nears, the pressure intensifies. Although Anna goes to all the ballet companies' annual auditions, she receives not a single offer. Falling for Tyler complicates things, but with the lead in the annual workshop performance, Anna gets one last chance to make her dreams come true.

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.
I am only reading the sample and it seems pertty good but does anyone want to chat if so......write under this book and in the first line that shows up wrtie sup with 4 !!!! Thx chow BTW my namebis Patricia :P
