A fine little memoir. Dutiful and uncritical. The most interesting moment was when the dying Raven refuses Copeland’s help. If Copeland had spent more time unpacking why, and her reaction to the refusal, we might have had the kernel of real insight.

Nothing to see here not covered in the average self help book.

This book touches on the idea that everyone has a start and can do big things when they put their mind to it. It is written about the author, Misty Copeland, a well-known ballerina. This book could be a great addition to a classroom library and help students to see themselves represented within the classroom. It could also pair well with a lesson on biographical non-fiction to show that biographies could be written in different ways.

This book is about a dancer, who is not very confident, and through her hard work and dedication becomes an amazing dancer. I think that this book could be a great read aloud to help show kids that they should follow their dreams and if they work hard, they can do anything. I think this would be a great book for elementary age students.
