This is an amazing story of perseverance and dedication to art. Even though it meant three days and two nights of torturous travel on filthy trains crammed with people, eleven-year-old Li Zhongmei was determined to get to Beijing to audition for the prestigious Beijing Dance Academy. She knew she had a very small chance of getting in - the school accepted only 12 girls and 12 boys from the whole country. And once she reached Beijing she realized that many people looked down on her for being a country girl. Even when she had gained entry to the school, some of her teachers thought that such an education was a waste on a country girl who would never amount to anything.

Li Zhongmei proved them wrong.

This is an inspiring true story of how one girl's love for ballet propelled her through an agonizing first year at the Beijing Dance Academy. She went on to become the best at the school and eventually became a professional dancer, touring Asia and settling in the United States. Although the writing is stilted and awkward in places, the plucky protagonist and the rags-to-riches story more than make up for it. Hand this to your young dancers and thespians.

This is a story likely to have wide appeal among the performance-minded and I'd recommend it to middle grade readers and teens both. ( )

A fictionalized account of dancer Li Zhongmei's journey from the Chinese backcountry to the world stage,mainly focusing on her entrance into the Beijing Dance Academy and her first year at the school. I often did not like the main character--she came across as extremely self-centered--and the writer is definitely a journalist and not a novelist. This novel would have worked better as a piece of nonfiction, but it did give an interesting glimpse into the world of Chinese ballet.
