When seventeen-year-old Natalya’s dreams of being a ballerina are killed in a car accident along with her father, she must choose: shut down—like her mother—or open up to love.

Last year, Natalya was attending the School of Performing Arts in New York City. Last year, she was well on her way to becoming a professional ballerina. Last year, her father was still alive.

But a car crash changed all that—and Natalya can’t stop blaming herself. Now, she goes to a regular high school in New Jersey; lives with her onetime prima ballerina, now alcoholic mother; and has no hope of a dance career.

At her new school, however, sexy soccer player Antonio sees a brighter future for Natalya, or at least a more pleasant present, and his patient charms eventually draw her out of her shell.

But when upsetting secrets come to light and Tonio’s own problems draw her in, Natalya shuts down again, this time turning to alcohol herself.

Can Natalya learn to trust Antonio before she loses him—and destroys herself?
This is the second read in a year that I’ve had regarding an fine arts student and the school of Juilliard. However, this novel has a different theme and presence of the prestigious school. When the main character finds herself in a situation of lost, grief,and hopelessness after the death of a love one, it appears that all is lost. That life stops. Plans stop and another path must be taken. She is talented. Her dancing carries her to a new world. But will her love for ballet be enough? Changes in life circumstances introduces a new character to the novel. A possible love interest to fill the void. But sometimes even love can’t fill such a dark place in life. And turning to other means to forget, appears to be the only answer. Delicate writing. Careful planning of events and just enough foreshadowing throughout to keep readers reading until the last page is novel, One, Two, Three. Will she find hope? Or is hope of being found, lost.

Elodie (1)

Elodie Nowodazkij was raised in a tiny village in France, where she could always be found a book in hand. At nineteen, she moved to the US, where she learned she’d never lose her French accent. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Modern Language & Linguistics, and later earned master’s degrees in German Cultural Studies and European Studies. Unbeknownst to her professors, she sometimes drafted stories in class. Now she lives in Germany with her husband and their cat (who doesn’t seem to realize he’s not human), and uses her commuting time to write the stories swirling in her head. She’s also a serial smiley user.

    This sounds like it is going to be a super emotional read… I’ll make sure I have some tissues on standby!! Thanks for sharing

    This book sounds so touching and heartbreaking at the same time. Teens need to see that life isn’t all sunshine and roses, and some adults, too. This would do that, but at the same time, give them hope.
