When high school junior Sara wins a coveted scholarship to study ballet, she must sacrifice everything for her new life as a professional dancer-in-training. Living in a strange city with a host family, she's deeply lonely-until she falls into the arms of Remington, a choreographer in his early twenties. At first, she loves being Rem's muse, but as she discovers a surprising passion for writing, she begins to question whether she's chosen the right path. Is Rem using her, or is it the other way around? And is dancing still her dream, or does she need something more? This debut novel in verse is as intense and romantic as it is eloquent
The Insider's Scoop
IF THE SECONDARY CHARACTERS IN AUDITION HAD SUPERNATURAL POWERS…
Sometimes I wish I wrote about wizards or girls with other-worldly powers. Ideally, it’d be a snazzy, six-figure-book-deal trilogy that would be made into the kind of 3D movie you have to wear those migraine-inducing glasses to see. Then again, I kind of think my ballerina girls are badasses in their own ways. So, I’m gonna make ‘em into superheroes. Just for you!
If your friends were superheroes, what would you call them? What colors and special effects would you add to their photographs? It's a lot of fun to think about. In fact, I'm kind of distracted thinking about the awesomeness that are my friends Julie, Janet, and Mo who've been helping me plan my book launch part. Or my cyber-buddies Lisa and Laura, who made my gorgeous book trailer. Or my critique group partners, my theater, dance and literary pals. Fact is, writing is a lonely job but launching a book into the world in these crazy publishing times takes a village. Mine is filled with cupcake-baking, carpool-driving, breakfast-and-gripe-session, proofread-anything-for-you superheroes. Here's hoping yours is, too!
