Not my usual genre.
Three talented ballet dancers at a conservatory. Three competitive dance moms. A feckless French star turned ballet dancer looking to film his redemption and search for a scholarship student to Paris. Backstabbing, jealousy, burnout, grief, ambition, arson.
I enjoyed this - it would make a great drama of a miniseries.

#BookedinTime #February #HailtheBail

I tried print and audio. A whole lot of telling going on and I‘m bored. I think I‘d be better off reading Mathilda Kschessinska‘s own Dancing in Petersburg.

ravenlee My kiddo spent an entire summer reading Ballet Shoes. Every time she got to the end she‘d sigh, then go right back to the beginning. She must have read it 20+ times just that summer. 1mo

Engrossing to the point that I got irritated when I was interrupted near the end. Loved the ballet focus and the variety of personalities and goals between the moms and the daughters. Do I wish there was more comeuppance for Savvy and Josie? Sure. But it didn't spoil my enjoyment. #fiction

Great book for dancers, dance moms, and even nonrelated dance-themed people. It's very easy to read and it captures you from the beginning.
Most of the books are from dancers talking about their live-in ballet, but never from the perspective of the mom. The one who is dreaming too through the success of her girl. Very interesting perspective. Also, it's not the typical cliche about the dance world. Just the reality, like every sport. #netgalley
