I really enjoyed this book
on 5 March 2016
I really enjoyed this book, as others have said it isn't particularly well written, but the girl is a dancer not a writer and she was looking back 15 or 20 years so it may be a little disjointed in places. Having said that I really enjoyed the telling of her life.
She was 13 when after having passed an audition for a Russian ballet school in Perm she goes to live there, a very brave and dedicated decision for such a young girl, very few Irish girls get the chance.
I was surprised at how hard the teachers were on their pupils and how disorganized it all seemed to be whilst traveling to different countries.
I have never seen her dance but would love to after reading her story!
