Amelia's Book Room: Dancer

Eek, I totally spaced out on my review yesterday--sorry guys! I've been a little tired and out of sorts lately, and I just completely forgot. Which is odd, since I've been looking forward to reviewing this great book!

Lorri Hewett's book Dancer (I couldn't find a big picture of the cover, so I'll put the itty-bitty version at the bottom) is one of the best dance novels I've read. It's about Stephanie, an african-american ballerina, struggling to find her place in the world of dance. She didn't get the lead part in her school's ballet show, and it's almost time to audition for summer programs, and she's wondering if they'll even look at her.

Then Miss Winnie shows up, an African-American woman who danced with George Balanchine and the great dancers of his time; she takes a special interest in Stephanie. But then there's Miss Winnie's nephew, Vance, a lazy dancer who's tired of ballet. As a dancer myself, I love the detailed terms and descriptions; the physical and mental stress that Stephanie feels, which I think all ballerinas have felt.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Dekoposh Book Club meeting last Monday, and don't forget to start reading Melissa Walker's Violet On The Runway for October! I leave you with the tiny cover for Dancer, which is very pretty. :)
