Tiny Pretty Things

This book is about 3 girls at a ballet school - Bette, Gigi and June - who will do anything to get the lead role. The ballet school has lots of competition. Someone is spreading rumors about the other dancers to bring them down. All 3 girls are worried their secrets will get out then they might be told to leave the school.

What’s interesting about this book is that there are mysterious people spreading rumors about ballerinas to get them kicked out. This adds a layer of suspense to the book. The main 3 characters try to be more careful by keeping their secrets to themselves so no one can find out. This is realistic because people spreads rumors at school or outside. The romance story in the book is part of the mystery. The characters in the book are fun to read about. One aspect of this book that doesn’t work is when each chapter starts with a different character and makes the story confusing. It also has a slow build up. Overall, I would recommend this book because there is competition between each ballerina, and their relationships are compelling and entertaining. I would give this book a rating of 3.5/5.
