This book by Gelsey Kirkland is a well-written account of her life as a ballerina. It chronicles her struggle with drug addiction, anorexia and bulimia and her ultimate triumph over all of these things. Written with a heartfelt voice, it paints an interesting picture of how difficult the world of professional ballet can be if the wrong paths are chosen. Still, ultimately the message is one of hope and self-redemption.
