    Wow I really liked this character Natalie from the first page, and I read it all in practically one sitting because I was so interested, not only in what would happen to her but in what she would say about it The narrator kind of reminded me of a gentler Canadian Holden Caulfield in tights I think her voice has a good mix of earnestness, bravado, irony, and fragility very teen I love the scenes in dance class, the interactions with dance teachers and peers quite dramatic at times, someti Wow I really liked this character Natalie from the first page, and I read it all in practically one sitting because I was so interested, not only in what would happen to her but in what she would say a...
