* Girl Through Glass by Sari Wilson

Any reader who was a ballerina as a child and pines for those days: please skip this review, get the book, and enjoy it.

For everyone else, Girl Through Glass  alternates between the life of a tween and young teenager in New York, a gifted ballerina, and her current life after a mysterious break from ballet, the reason of which is revealed through the story. All the clichés are there: the hyper-disciplined life of young dancers, anorexia, preying old men, the stage mothers. I did not feel that the story rose much above all that.
