Fourteen year old Cassie travels from Australia to a summer ballet program in Canada. The plot moves quickly, and glosses over a lot of details. There could have been a lot more description about the day to day life of ballerinas in a prestigious ballet academy. There are nice moments in the book where the dancers bond over how much they love dancing and how important it is to them. Too many books and movies about ballet employ the cliché that every group of aspiring ballerinas includes mean girls out to sabotage one another, and the plot of this book is entirely built around that tired idea.

Fairly good story about young ladies and bullying . Could have had a better more concise ending though.

Good story for the 10-14 year old set about a teen dancer who attends a summer ballet program and has to stand up to a bully. I don't know how this got classified under adult fiction, but it is definitely written for the juvenile level.
