Soon to be a Netflix TV show! Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars in this soapy, drama-packed novel featuring diverse characters who will do anything to be the prima at their elite ballet school. From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Belles, Dhonielle Clayton, and the author of the highly anticipated Symptoms of a Heartbreak, Sona Charaipotra. Gigi, Bette, and June, three top students at an exclusive Manhattan ballet school, have seen their fair share of drama. Free-spirited new girl Gigi just wants to dance--but the very act might kill her. Privileged New Yorker Bette's desire to escape the shadow of her ballet-star sister brings out a dangerous edge in her. And perfectionist June needs to land a lead role this year or her controlling mother will put an end to her dancing dreams forever. When every dancer is both friend and foe, the girls will sacrifice, manipulate, and backstab to be the best of the best. Don't miss the gossip, lies, and scandal that continues in Tiny Pretty Things' gripping sequel, Shiny Broken Pieces!… (més)

Very very trigger happy if you're sensitive to eating issues - it was quite exciting though and a lot happened throughout the book - the description of it was quite apt, each of the girls was struggling with their own things, trying to make it big, buckling under presser, I'm pretty sure I'll continue the series.

WAY too soapy. I read half but abandoned it. Just didn't have any depth. ( )

A page-turner though it went a bit overboard on characters behaving badly.

Gigi, who is black and therefore unexpectedly on a rapid rise through the ranks at a ballet academy that traditionally reserves lead roles for the whitest of dancers, she’s the main target of bullying and the easiest character to like since she really does try to be kind and tries to make friends, and her affinity for nature was a refreshing change from stereotypical teen interests like fashion, partying, etc. Really the only thing you could fault this girl for is taking up with a guy before he’s officially ended his relationship with someone else. I wasn’t really a fan of that romance, with so many characters doing devious things it made it difficult to trust Alec enough to buy into his sincerity where Gigi was concerned. Actually none of the romances (if you could even call some of them that), really worked for me.

June is half-Korean and though she’s watching her black roommate cement herself in the spotlight, June is still left feeling like she has to work a thousand times harder and eat a whole lot less to truly be seen and get the opportunities her white contemporaries receive. June has a tendency to be cold and cutting and does some awful things, but in showing us her eating disorder, the strained relationship with her mother, the longing to know who her father is, the rejection and taunting from a former friend, the authors did a really great job of illustrating why this girl is the way she is so you could have empathy for her even as she sometimes behaves in ways you wish she wouldn’t.

Then there’s Bette, who is white and blonde, the once ideal for a ballerina who’s suddenly rejected by her teachers, rejected by her boyfriend, she’s extremely self-absorbed all but ignoring the things her so-called friends are going through because she’s too busy feeling sorry for herself and tormenting a fellow ballerina. But as with June, while you might not be able to declare Bette entirely likable, the uncomfortable encounters with Henri and the glimpses of the way she’s treated by her mother, particularly regarding her knee, gives you an understanding of this girl and so there are moments where I definitely felt for her.

I don’t doubt that the bullying featured here is to some degree accurate given how few placements there are in dance schools and companies, like in any other highly competitive situation there probably is a certain amount of sabotage, cruelty, and even criminality, but surely there are some genuine friendships in the dance world, aren’t there? To me, it just felt like the balance was a bit off, leaning so relentlessly into bad behavior gave the book a somewhat unreal quality that maybe could have been helped by a few more instances of showing girls supporting one another.

Dance Academy in book form. ( )

This was everything I wanted it to be! I loved the sabotage and the mystery surrounding it. It added this thick tension to the story that had you craving more. But the characters really make this. I had so many feelings and thoughts about each lead. I loved their character stories filled with gossip, weaknesses and strengths. I have my theories about what will happen next but I'm so excited to start book 2 tonight! ( )
