A fantastic read,
This review is from: Ballet Shoes: A Story of Three Children on the Stage (Puffin Books) (Mass Market Paperback)
This is not usually the sort of book I would go for, as it is about Ballet, the cover is pink, it's quite old and is not fantasy, but with the release of the TV movie I thought I would give it a go. I managed to finish it before seeing the film and so had no preconceptions.
Not only did I LOVE it, but wanted to read it again right away and desperate even more to see it come to life.
I felt that it was really well written and I could get into the story and feel the characters come to life off the page.
The three girls made sisters by chance have such a strong bond and faithfulness to each other and their carers. Doing all they can to get money to help pay for bills etc, they go to a Stage training academy and learn different dances, acting and singing, and then getting parts in productions that pay.
I would definately recommend this to ballet fans, but also anyone who likes a nice heartwarming story. Really good read, that will keep you turning the pages.
