Goodreads:  When high school junior Sara wins a coveted scholarship to study ballet, she must sacrifice everything for her new life as a professional dancer-in-training. Living in a strange city with a host family, she’s deeply lonely-until she falls into the arms of Remington, a choreographer in his early twenties. At first, she loves being Rem’s muse, but as she discovers a surprising passion for writing, she begins to question whether she’s chosen the right path. Is Rem using her, or is it the other way around? And is dancing still her dream, or does she need something more? This debut novel in verse is as intense and romantic as it is eloquent.

Ope’s Opinion:  The first thing that attracted me to the book was the cover.  My daughter Kristin of Kritters Ramblings was a dancer.  It is fun to read about dancer after living with one.  

This book moved very fast and read very fast.  I could not believe I read over 400 pages in two days.  That is very unusual for me.

The main character, Sara, was very well developed, but all the characters around her were just touched on.  It was all from her point of view, so you did not get the advantage of knowing what other people were thinking or feeling.

The ending wrapped some things up, but left it for another book to be able to follow Sara through her senior year of high school.  We’ll see….

Rating: 3 – I like the book enough to suggest it to a friend or two.
