I give this book 5 stars. It is one of the books that I read over and over. It is about a young girl who wants to become a ballerina and she is growing up the Holocaust. In some ways ballet is an outlet for her to forget all that is going on in the outside world. It also in some ways helps her family survive because she gets better rations that normal people. She struggles with having to find other ways to make money for her family and at one point she is kidnapped and raped. She has to try to survive all the horrors of the war. This is based on a true story of the author's life. ( )
