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. 


I heard about this book, and I haven’t had chance to read it. When I came across it while I was at library, I decided to check it out. TINY PRETTY THINGS wasn’t what I expected it to be, but so much better. I couldn’t get enough of the story. I love any books that has anything to do with dancing. I loved fact that TINY PRETTY THINGS had to do with ballerinas, I always thought that ballet was beautiful. I know that I never be available to do it but I enjoy watching it. I loved the fact that it was The Nutcracker, I am Russian and I actually seen the ballet live with my mom few years back. I was aware that everyone was competing for the lead role, for the role that would get them noticed. What I didn’t expect was how far they would go. Considering what happened to Cassie, but even I wasn’t aware that the drop was set up, I was sure that it was accident. After what happened to Cassie, I didn’t think that she would come back, so it took me when she did show up towards the end. Gigi was the one that I felt horrible for, the things they done to her, how they tortured her. I know they did, hoping they get her to leave. If it were me, I would have. I wouldn’t been able to handle it, I would have gotten away from there as fast as I could. Bette, I never liked so it didn’t take me by surprise what she done. But June, Gigi was her friend and she was nothing but nice to her. I had feeling if Gigi found out, that would be end of their friendship.

I liked Gigi, even with everything that she was going through, her heart condition. Not once did she even think of giving up, even after someone put glass in her shoe. She kept on going, she kept the goal in her mind. I do wish that she would taken her heart condition more seriously than she did, that could cost her life. I understand why she didn’t want others to find out, considering how she was treated. But not taking it seriously could cost her life. I don’t blame her mother for worrying. Dancing can’t be that good for someone with her condition. I did like her dedication, her determination. I know that what those girls did to her, got to her. However that didn’t keep her from her goal. I was afraid for her though, the bullying and the pranks kept on getting worse each time. I was afraid that it would come to the point where they would go too far. The ending proved that. I was glad that she had Alec, I could tell how much he cared about her. I feel that their relationship seemed more real, then when he was with Bette. I think that besides dancing, being with Alec was the only time that she actually seemed happy. Gigi needed someone like Alec.

I wasn’t too fond of June either, how she treated Gigi, even though she was always there for her when she needed her. All because she was jealous. She would do anything to get the role, and what she was doing to herself , is not way to do it. I know that if she kept it up, she would get herself kicked out. I was surprised she was able to do it for as long as she did. I do know if she keeps it up, she wouldn’t just get herself kicked out, she would land herself in the hospital. Bette, there was nothing I liked about her. Especially once I found out that she was one to told Will to drop Cassie. Who does that? I am not surprised that she got blamed for pushing Gigi in front of the Taxi. Yet I wasn’t convinced that she was the one that did, that she was getting set up. Part of me wondered if it was Henri, to try to revenge for what she did to his girlfriend, Cassie. I think that the ending had me asking more questions. I couldn’t wait to pick up the next book in series and see what happened. TINY PRETTY THINGS is a book that will have you on edge of your seat, and it will have you wonder what will happen next, how it will all end.

TINY PRETTY THINGS is a book about jealously, betrayal, revenge and how far someone will go to get what they want. It’s filled with drama, suspense. Be ready for a thrilling ride.
