This review can also be found on my blog schakarinI don t really know what to think of Wish While I liked the story overall I also had some Doctor Who and the Planet of the Daleks problems with it But let s start with theositive aspects I loved that the dancing was such a big Cable Deadpool Vol. 1: If Looks Could Kill part of this book I m not a dancer myself but I ve always ben fascinated with it and I really liked getting to know a little about ballet Indigo was a great main character she felt real and I liked hearing the story from heroint of view As always

If you love ballet fiction For Indigo Stevens ballet classes at Miss Roberta’s ballet studio offer the stability and structure that are missing from her crazy home life At almost 16 she hopes this is the year she will be accepted into the New York School of Ballet so she can begin her ballet dance career First she must rove she’s ready and that means ignoring S were a mixed bag at times they felt vapid and silly but at other times they really ulled through for her though there was a large cast of them lus all of their boyfriends and it was hard to keep track of them or feel invested in them at #Times It Was Nice To See Female Relationships That Were #It was nice to see female relationships that were rather than destructive ortrayed a majority of the time although there was a mini sort of rivalry constantly in the background between Indigo and another dancer named Marlene that seemed rather unnecessaryOverall As a dancer I enjoyed this book and appreciated the attention to detail As a reader I was invested in Indigo s family s outcome and Indigo s future As a human I was If I Have to Tell You One More Time. . . proud to see the way Indigo confronted the alcoholism running unchecked in her family and how she looked to resources such as Al Anon for support I will definitely be checking out the seuel in this series to see how Indigo s family continues to cope and how Indigo herself balances healing herself with her budding dance careerThis review originally appeared at Girl in the Pages Loved this story about a teen girl striving to become arofessional dancer while dealing with a stressful and chaotic family situation For anyone who s family felt out of control and dysfunctional Digital Biology particularly readers who have familyfriends who are alcoholics I think this will really resonate This book was engaging and funny despite the intense subject matter I also enjoyed being behind the scenes in the ballet world and watching Indigo develop her skills and confidence as a dancer In accordance to FTC guidelines I must disclose that I received a free copy of this book through Xpresso Book Tours and the author in exchange for an honest reviewOriginally reviewed on The Hardcover LoverI don t think many of my readers may know this about me but like Indigo I once had dreams of being a ballerina with some of the best companies Unfortunately for me I was never able to attend any elite studios and eventually my bullying teachers hurt me so emotionally that I uit I still wish that I would have went somewhere else and continued to dance but I never didBallet is the reason why I was drawn to Wish by Grier Cooper Once you dance it s in your blood forever Even if you don t continue you still love to dance in your room or learn about it That s why I wanted to read this I wanted to see how dance shaped the life of Indigo What I found is a beautiful story of a young ballet dancer with dreams of going to New York and dancingrofessionally but is being I Am Food pulled back to help rescue her family from crumbling toiecesIf you look at the cover you ll see a ballerina in a dark setting and the cover fits the Clotilda plot of this novel Indigo Stevens is a talented young dancer and she dreams of attending therestigious New York School of Ballet To get there she has to stay focused in ballet class I loved this storyline in the book It kind of reminded me of the TV show Bunheads because there is just so much that has to happen for a ballet dancer to even earn an audition I do wish that there were ballet scenes in this book though I think that would have made it a bit enjoyableLike Mokee Joe Recharged (Mokee Joe, previously mentioned ballet is not the only thing that s going on in Wish There s Cooper makes a very brave decision in Wish by tackling alcoholism This is something that many YA authors avoid but I think it s important because there are going to be teens who have alcoholic family members There are even teens who battle alcoholism If they can connect with a book or a character in a book they might feel comfortable in seeking help for their loved ones If you read this book you ll discover that Cooper writes about alcoholism thoughtfully and carefully She tells the story of two women dealing with it the alcoholic mother and her daughter It s a hard thing to write about it but Cooper does this flawlessly She mentions drunk driving in one chapter She also deals with a lot ofroblems alcoholics face in great detail like violence and denialWish by Grier Cooper is a thought rovoking book I d recommend it for dancers who enjoy reading about other dancers I d also recommend this book for fans of realistic fiction and emotionally heavy books I also think that teens who have dealt with an alcoholic family members should ick up this book You can win this book and 10 GC on my blog here Ever since I was a little girl I looked upon ballet dancers admiring them and dreaming about becoming a ballerina when I
