Café Fashionista Book Club! Since we began in January, we have read Jennifer E. Smith’s The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight and Meg Cabot’s Abandon. This month, in honor of the release of OPI’s collaboration with the New York City Ballet (and my undying obsession with ballerinas), I thought it would be a fabulous time to read Sophie Flack’s Bunheads.
Once a dancer with the New York City Ballet, Sophie Flack is now officially a YA author, and Bunheads is her debut novel.
As always, the rules remain the same…Throughout the month, you can come back to this original posting, and Discuss the current book club selection in the Comments section, sharing your thoughts on a character you love (or love to hate), memorable quotes or scenes in the book, and the like. Everything is very informal; but I think that it will be a blast, and I hope that you will all join in! Remember you do not have to participate each month - only when you have the time or feel compelled to.
As a dancer with the ultra-prestigious Manhattan Ballet Company, nineteen-year-old Hannah Ward juggles intense rehearsals, dazzling performances and complicated backstage relationships. Up until now, Hannah has happily devoted her entire life to ballet.
But when she meets a handsome musician named Jacob, Hannah's universe begins to change, and she must decide if she wants to compete against the other "bunheads" in the company for a star soloist spot or strike out on her own in the real world. Does she dare give up the gilded confines of the ballet for the freedoms of everyday life?
The title has been revealed, now it’s time to read and discuss!
