We’re going to try something new with this one. The description is the second image of the Instagram post below, and the sticky note review is now the third image.
I don’t think I’ve read any YA that centers around a dancer yet, and I think it was about time. If you have recommendations for other YA books about dancers, please leave it in the comments. I need more. TIA.
#bookaday Pointe by Brandy Colbert. #stickynotereviews Wow. Just wow. I was curious because ballet, and I was curious because kidnapping, but there was so much more to this story. It's less about the kidnapping than about Theo's reaction to the kidnapping, so I'd advise against going in with false expectations. The characterization is fabulous. We're with Theo as she goes through the process of [spoiler redacted] and it's stellar. I wanted her to actually have contact with her friend, but the way it plays out makes sense.
