Bunheads aka Ballerinas

Ever wonder what it would be like to be a young dancer in a prestigious New York ballet company?  Meet Hannah who at 19 is on the verge of making a breakthrough as a lead dancer. She looks forward to finally calling herself a ballerina, not merely a dancer.  Since she was 10 years old, Hannah has worked hard and competitively to carve out a career in ballet.  She loves the camaraderie in the dressing room with her company friends and nothing can compare with the thrill of performance, whether it be the hundredth time she's danced as a snowflake in the Nutcracker or has just debuted a pas de deux in a new ballet.  Despite the glamour of her world, Hannah feels that the life of a dancer insulates her from the rest of the world.  When she meets Jacob, a handsome singer she discovers a bigger excitement, that of  the bustling city around her.  More importantly, is the feeling inside her, could it be love?  In the end, is it possible to balance this drive to become a successful dancer with the desire to combine her life with another?  Read Bunheads by Sophie Flack and step into Hannah's world.
