I found this book to be very enjoyable because it has moments that everyone can relate to. Hannah has to make an important decision about what she wants to do with her life, and we all have to make decisions, even if at the time they seem invalid. This book is interactive to all dancers, and knowing some ballet vocabulary may help the reader better understand the book’s content. Even if you aren’t a ballet dancer, this book is still very good, and brought me a great lesson.
I don’t recommend this book to anybody under the age of 11 because it has some adult content that isn’t appropriate for young readers. Over all, I found this to be a very well written and inspiring book.
