Delightful, tightly written little book about teenaged dancers facing their fears and expanding their lives. I too dreamed of becoming a ballerina, though due to health problems switched to singing and theater when I was 12. I've had the good fortune to be able to perform as a professional actress, though never as a ballerina. This book captures the heart of a young performer, and an introvert. I remember well the shear terror of going to a sleep away camp at around 8 or 9 yo. Meg is older, but the emotions are well portrayed here. The book is short, but the point is made succinctly. It doesn't need more.
