  About The Book

On-stage beauty. Backstage drama.

As a dancer with the ultra-prestigious Manhattan Ballet Company, nineteen-year-old Hannah Ward juggles intense rehearsals, dazzling performances and complicated backstage relationships. Up until now, Hannah has happily devoted her entire life to ballet.

But when she meets a handsome musician named Jacob, Hannah's universe begins to change, and she must decide if she wants to compete against the other "bunheads" in the company for a star soloist spot or strike out on her own in the real world. Does she dare give up the gilded confines of the ballet for the freedoms of everyday life?

  Praise

"At turns riveting, hilarious and bittersweet, Bunheads provides a backstage pass into the world of elite New York City ballet dancers. I got swept up in their routines and habits, their triumphs and disappointments, and their deep friendships, which thrive even in the face of fierce competition. This is at once a romantic page-turner and a thoughtful exploration of just how much true artists are willing to give up for their art."  J. Courtney Sullivan, New York Times bestselling author of Commencement and Maine

"A must-read for every young dancer!   Sophie Flack takes us inside the world of the professional dancer, sparing nothing, and weaving a poignant, honest coming-of-age story that will keep you turning pages."

Davida Willis Hurwin, author of A Time For Dancing, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults
