Soon to be a Netflix TV show!

Black Swan meets Pretty Little Liars in this soapy, drama-packed novel featuring diverse characters who will do anything to be the prima at their elite ballet school.

From the New York Times-bestselling author of The Belles, Dhonielle Clayton, and the author of the highly anticipated Symptoms of a Heartbreak, Sona Charaipotra.

Gigi, Bette, and June, three top students at an exclusive Manhattan ballet school, have seen their fair share of drama. Free-spirited new girl Gigi just wants to dance—but the very act might kill her. Privileged New Yorker Bette's desire to escape the shadow of her ballet-star sister brings out a dangerous edge in her. And perfectionist June needs to land a lead role this year or her controlling mother will put an end to her dancing dreams forever.

When every dancer is both friend and foe, the girls will sacrifice, manipulate, and backstab to be the best of the best.

Don’t miss the gossip, lies, and scandal that continues in Tiny Pretty Things’ gripping sequel, Shiny Broken Pieces!

I had so many high expectations for this book. I did the terrible thing of watching the show before reading the book with my hopes and dreams shattered.

I suppose that it is always a good thing when the show isn’t like the book because the TV show was phenomenal and I was captivated the book however had me falling asleep.

A part of my brain couldn’t turn off comparing the book to the TV show and that’s what annoyed me because I can’t give a review that isn’t biased and won’t compare the two.

The writing wasn’t bad I liked it what I didn’t like was the characters. They were so mean and such bullies. And that hurt. Reading about how they translate watching a ballerina to actually writing a ballerina and the turmoils they go through was good.

But unfortunately, I just couldn’t get into this book and that’s the unfortunate thing.
