This was one of the saddest books I have ever read. It was beautifully written with just enough depth to it, while not getting too deep that it becomes pompous. I've never had to deal with a friend having cancer, but when I read this book it was like I was right there with Jules and Sam. I would recommend anyone who wants to read a sad book about friendship, hard times, and loss. ( )

Julia was a dynamic character because she was a dancer then she got tired and lost her hair and then she died and that was sad, but that is how she changed ( )

A Time For Dancing was an amazing novel filled with many different emotions. It was a book that was pretty easy to relate to if the reader had experienced anything similar to the main character and her best friend. That was one of the things I loved the most about it... I could relate to the main character very easily, in many different ways. It's a great book for two best friends to read and relate to. I never wanted to put the book down. The author kept me engaged and always wanting to read more. It's definitely a tear jerker, but very well worth the read! ( )

This book had a very good storyline. It was interesting to see what each of the main characters went though and the author did a really good job of describing all of the emotions. ( )
